Wallachia on the Wing
In mid August of 2013, I paid a visit to the Beskydy mountians in the north east of the country. Geographically, this area is part of Moravian Silesia; however, from an ethnographic standpoint it is typically called Wallachia. In several aspects, such as folk traditions and folk architecture, this region does stand apart from the rest of the country.
The Beskydy mountains themselves are part of the Carpathian range and are quite popular for tourism year round. The mountains boast trekking and hiking trails as well as ski slopes and many observation points.
I had the good fortune of taking a half hour flight over this area; here’s a few of the resulting pictures:
