Bieszczady are a mountain range located in the Eastern Beskids, which belong to the Eastern Carpathians. This range is limited by two passes - Łupkowska and Wyszkowska. Regarding the geographical division of the Bieszczady, it is good to know that we divide the entire Bieszczady into the West, located on the Polish and Slovak side, and the East, on the Ukrainian side. Eastern and Western Bieszczady are separated by the Uzhgorod pass, located in Ukraine. The terms 'Bieszczady' and 'Beskid' have been used for centuries as the names of the mountains separating Poland and Ruthenia from Hungary. The etymology of the words 'Bieszczady' and 'Beskid' is, however, unclear, it is likely that these words are derived from the Thracian people of Bess, whose presence north of the Carpathians was noted by Ptolemy in his works.

In the vicinity of Lesko, Stefkowa and Olszanica, various objects were found, such as arrowheads and bracelets from the Bronze Age, referring to the culture of Oromani - the population inhabiting the southern slopes of the Carpathian Mountains at that time. Archaeological finds...
