Photographer's Note

The Babia Góra National Park was established by government order on 30 October 1954. On 17 January 1977 the International Coordinating Council of the UNESCO “Man and Biosphere” programme (MaB) established the Biosphere Reserve on Babia Góra. The Reserve encompassed the area of the National Park and was established on account of the unique environmental value, long history of conservation and intensive scientific research conducted here. This beautiful and capricious queen of Beskidy Mountains is famous for its view, which according to many opinions, has no equal in the whole Poland. Babia Góra itself is called by the local people "The Fickle Mountain" because of very treacherous weather in the summit area. Also, the mountain sculpture varies considerably - it is gentle on the South and very steep, even with cliff faces on the North.
