Beskid Śląski - Range of Klimczok

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Beskid Śląski (Silesian Beskid) occupies relatively small area. In the mountains three ranges can be distinguish: Range of Ram’s Mountain (Pasmo Baraniej Góry) with the highest peak of Beskid Śląski – Skrzyczne (1257 m) and Ram’s Mountain (1220 m), Range of Klimczok with Klimczok (1117 m) and the Range of Czantoria with the Czantoria Wielka (995 m), Kiczory (990 m) and Stożek Wielki (978 m). The range of Ram’s Mountain is strongly split up. The side ranges spreads in both direction. In the narrow valley between Czantoria and Ram’s Mountain Ranges flows Vistula River which springs are located on the slopes of Ram’s Mountain. Soła from east and Olza from west are the natural borders of Beskid Śląski. The colonization of the area begun very late. In Middle Ages the cities and villages were being located mainly on the foothills or in valleys around the mountains. The gradual colonization took place due to princes of Cieszyn. Beskid Śląski was and is inhabited by Silesian highlanders. In the old days the economy was based on the pastoralism. Nowadays the tourism is more and more important. Wisła, Ustroń and Szczyrk are main resorts in Beskid Śląski.
