    This place is sort of two in one: a museum and a restaurant. We popped in twice in june 2018, and both times it was quite an experience. Even if we had ordered the same soup both times - kisełycia is absolutelly a delight. But obviously the mains were different but both times very tasty indeed. Superb food they serve, all regional products and regional recepies, as I bet you won't find such dishes anywhere else, at least in Poland, supposedly thiese are more common in Ukraine. So food delicious, served in nice setting of old mill. The bottom floor of the mill turned into a restaurant, while floors above that are still preserved as a mill, and are available for exploring as a little museum. But lets be honest - there's no way after such good meal, to climb steep steps to look around floors above and to be interested in old milling customs. Next time will have to visit the exposition before food arrives. Large unorganised car park accessible from both Kolejowa and Fabryczna streets.

    This is another one of large nature reserves in Góry Słonne (or Góry Sanocko-Turczańskie) mountains, which protects forests, namely Carpathian beech forest. It name comes from non-existant village, which used to be just west from the reserve. Chwaniów is quite easy to reach, as it is located not far from main DW 890 road (no parking), from which short walk on blue trail takes you to the border of the reserve, but then that trail allows to walk thrugh the reserve, and that's probably the best way of exploring it, as all former forest roads have dissapeared, overtaken by nature. Definitely worth visiting, especially in the spring, when all flowers bloom, before trees come up with their leaves. Combine it with a visit to the former park in Jureczkowa.

    For some góry Słonne are not a separate mountain group, and are part of Góry Sanocko-Turczańskie. Sometimes these are taken as part of Pogorze Przemyskie. In 1992 Park Krajobrazowy (landscape park) was established to protect these mountains. It borders Park Krajobrazowy Pogórza Przemyskiego in north, but that split in two Parks is more to do with former administrative borders, than in difference in shape of hills or nature - todays border between them reflects former voivodship border between Krośnieńskie and Przemyskie voivodships. And back in 1992 voivodship councils had the power to establish such forms of nature protection. Very large area that Park Krajobrazowy Gor Slonnych (PKGS) covers is a perfect place for those, who like to hike on their own, by combating adversity, such as lack of public transport, lack of food supply, lack of accommodation (although this has improved somewhat in recent years), practically no larger towns, and a very scarce network of marked tourist routes. So basically there's mainly forests on hills and meadows in valleys. And signs with warnings of bears. Large part of this area was included in government run hunting/recreational complex for VIPs of then communist establishement, and ordinary people were banned from entering - an area of about 20 thousand hectars was fenced and guarded by military personel with machine guns. That former complex will be soon a core part of coming new national park, let's hope. Practically the only two bigger towns, that can be used as a base for any trips into Park, located just outside PKGS, are Ustrzyki Dolne and Sanok, and any public transport links comes out of them - during weekdays, on weekends no service at all. Love this part of Carpathian mountains.

    Quite far from Ustrzyki Dolne town centre. Located in north western part of town, surrounded by housing estates. It is part of bigger sports complex, which also includes outdoor football, basketball and tennis grounds. The swimming pool itself is divided into two parts: indoor and outdoor. Those two parts are separated, and you can't just walk between them, you got to walk out with all your stuff from one part, to enter the other - some bigger modern swimming pools got those zones joined together, so one wouldn't have to worry about going out of water in one part, drying themselfs, and then having to walk around the building to enter the other part. We heard that both parts can be used on one ticket, but we never tried, as our visit was due to huge thunder storm, which made the outdoor part abandoned. Quite small this place is - just one pool plus one slide. The outdoor part includes two pools plus a few slides of all sorts and some kind of a beach. Definitelly would reccommend, not only for rainy day.

    Small monument, by main road, commemorating soldiers form local military base, who died in years 1945-47, so soon after WWII. This soldiers were part of Polish border force. But it's got to be said, that during mentioned years Ustrzyki were part of Soviet Union, and only returned to Poland in 1951, when both governments decided to change the border. So before this happened, mentioned soldiers, were based in Olszanica, just west from Ustrzyki, but nonetheless, they were still very much engaged in fights with Ukrainian nationalists, who were killing Pols in south-eastern Poland, to make way for independent Ukraine. So numbers of casualities in civil population are many times higher, than soldiers.

    We’ve been at Laworta Ski in February 2020. We have rented the full set of equipment and got private ski lesson for adults and a child.
    There was not a great deal of snow (clearly not a fault of the crew but the weather), but it was enough for inexperienced skiers to learn.
    The instructors were very good, patient and providing all help needed.

    Apparently this is the biggest national park run nature museum in Poland, in small town of Ustrzyki Dolne, far from Bieszczady National Park - an institution that is an owner of the museum, even if the museum itself was commisioned and constucted before even Bieszczady National Park was established... Quite fancy building for such conservative architecturally part of world, still stands out after so many years of building it. Unfortunatelly most of the exhibitions are in the same state - still as they were set up all those years back, in early seventies... It can be of some value, but when you got experience with other such places - namely Białowieski National Park museum, or - much closer - Magurski National Park museum - you know they are in need of investing hugely in new exhibitions, using all latest tricks in that matter, and they need to do it quick. Worth a visit on a very rainy day or if you curious how they tought us about nature back in the day, but don't expect too much, which is a shame actually, because this is a place with massive potential.

    My friends and I visited this micro-brewery last month. It was a great stop shortly after leaving Ustrzyki Dolne. The beers were very tasty and we ended up buying a few which we enjoyed for the remainder of our trip.
    There is a very arty vibe to the place, with works of art for sale as well as to appreciate. There's also a lot of local craft, and a great little souvenir shop to pick things up from.
    The micro-brewery is also a social enterprise, which uses sustainable sources of energy and donate to other causes - so it felt good to support them, even if it was just by buying tasty beer.
    It's definitely worth a visit when you're in the area.
