A National Park in southern Poland on the border with Slovakia, the Pieniny are a range of mid-sized mountains which offer some stunning natural landscapes.

My suggestion:
If you find yourselves in the Pieniny Valley, don't leave without taking a trip down the Dunajec river aboard a traditional wooden raft.
My review

A beautiful corner of undisturbed nature, the Pieniny National Park boasts a stunning panorama of hills and small mountains which reach around 1000 metres. It's a perfect nature spot which is home to a great many species of plants and animals. The Pieniny Valley also boasts various streams and lakes, perfect for kayaking and rafting enthusiasts. The Dunajec river, which marks the border with Slovakia, is particularly well-known for its magnificent gorges and canyons.

The Pieniny National Park offers around 40 kilometres of hiking trails, which I was able to enjoy myself. I was particularly impressed by the ascent to the summit of the Three Crowns (tri koruny), which rewards hikers with a breathtaking panoramic view of nature and the surrounding peaks. A peaceful, tucked-away spot which is a must-visit for anyone planning a trip to Poland.
