Tarnów Region

Tarnów Region

Dwór w Dołędze
The Tarnów region is divided into two parts characterised by different landscapes: the areas of the Carpathian Foothills and the Sandomierz Basin. Road no. 4 runs more or less along the meeting point of these two lands. If you leave from Tarnów and head for the basin, you will see agricultural lands, marshy forests, as well as dry pine forests, with small rivers winding their way through the area. This terrain is ideal for peaceful bicycle trips and mushroom picking, where the most important attraction is contact with nature. The natural environment of the Carpathian Foothills is equally enticing.
