These beautiful photographs were taken by Michal Jaworski, who
takes you on a trip through the Carpathians
with his photos.
According to Mr. Jaworski, there are about 400 pictures
covering the Polish and Ukrainian part of Carpathian Mountains.
Before WW2, the majority of those areas belonged to Poland (parts to
Czech Republic and Romania). Now those areas are divided between Ukraine and
Poland. The photographs take you on a tour of the mountains near "such towns like
(Polish names) Stanislawów, Lwów, Kolomyja, Przemysl, Ustrzyki Górne,
Rafajlowa, Osmoloda. Pictures are collected into virtual-trips. The visitor can have
a virtual walk with possibility of having a glance left, right or back
(it should work like that...)"
This site is described as ". . .quite a nice concept in traveling via the Internet."
Instructions in polish are available under the button with "?" mark.
Mr. Jaworski has promised that eventually, the instructions
to this site will be in English. Be patient!
