Photographer's Note

Polana the natural dominating feature of the area and symbol of the Slavs extolled by poets, towers over the region, which both the past and presence will attract your interest. There are no accurately delimited neither geographical nor administrative and legal borders in the Podpolanie region. It is one of the most distinctive Slovak regions. The picturesque foothill countryside distinguishes in natural beauties, plenty of forests, streams and mineral sources as well as in still continuing folk culture. The Polana stratovolcano (1, 458 m asl) belongs among the highest extinct volcanoes in Europe. The Polana territory was designated as protected landscape area and it was filed into the world network of biosphere reserves of UNESCO (20,360 ha).
