Trzebnica Hills, also known as the Cat Mountains, are distinguished by their picturesqueness and a dense network of walking and cycling routes encourages active relaxation in the fresh air.
Trzebnica Hills are located north of Wroclaw and despite their great diversity and multitude of monuments, they are a relatively unknown part of Lower Silesia. The region is mainly visited by the inhabitants of Wroclaw enjoying short weekend trips. Many monuments have been preserved here and there are forests abundant in mushrooms and berries. Trzebnica Hills are part of the nearly 200-kilometer long Trzebnica Embankment, which also includes Zary Hills and Dalkow, Ostrzeszow and Twardogora Hills. The highest hill of the Embarkment is Kobyla Gora (A Mare Mountain) (284 m a.s.l.) and in Trzebnica Hills it is Farna Mountain (257 m a.s.l.) located west of Trzebnica. These areas gained their shape during the Central Polish glaciation and are the remains of heaps of sand pushed by the head of the glacier. Erratic boulders brought from distant Scandinavia are also frequent here.

Other regions of Lower Silesia:
The Kaczawa Mountains and Foothills, known as the Land of Extinct Volcanoes, is the northernmost fragment of the Western Sudetes. It primarily delights with nature and landscapes. Ostrzyca is the highest hill here - its characteristic silhouette, visible from many kilometers, is reminiscent of Japanese Fujiyama.
The Barycz River Valley is mainly visited by nature enthusiasts. Milicz Ponds, known to all ornithologists, are a refuge for many species of birds and their flights attract hundreds of observers to this area. Equally impressive are walks along picturesque levees, especially at sunset or sunrise.
Located on the border with Germany, the region has enjoyed the recognition of canoeing enthusiasts for years. They have both typical mountain and calmer river sections at their disposal. However, it is enough to pull the kayak ashore to see that there are also other attractions in the region.
The Odra River Valley - the largest of the sub-areas of Lower Silesia - is also the heart of the entire region. Only Wroclaw, in which Odra flows with several branches, provides attractions for many days of sightseeing. And this is just the beginning!
The picturesque Owl Mountains, the Central Sudetes range, delight with amazing landscapes that can be admired from many viewpoints. They are a wonderful place for hiking and biking tours and, in winter, breathtaking views can be admired while cross-country skiing on the many trails prepared for especially it.
The Sleza Mountain, rising above the surrounding area at 718 meters above sea level, is located about 30 km southwest of Wroclaw.

And this is why crowds of, not only of Polish, hikers come every day to the summit of this Silesian Olympus.

The Karkonosze or Giant Mountains, the highest range of the Sudetes with Sniezka rising 1603 m above the sea level, have amazed people for hundreds of years and it is hard to believe that these mountains are so little known in Poland today. The Jizera Mountains with the Foothills are, in turn, the westernmost part of the Polish Sudetes. The picturesque, captivating Jizera landscape is dominated by wide valleys and hills with elongated, gentle slopes.
