(p.1) Introduction
The Carpathians

Patrice M. Dabrowski

Cornell University Press

This chapter introduces the Carpathian Mountains which are Central and Eastern Europe's most prominent physical feature. It mentions how most studies tend to overlook the Carpathian Mountains compared to the Alps and Pyrenees. The Poles discovered these mountain ranges and turned them into extremely popular vacation destinations, which is in various ways paradoxical following the repeated discovery of the Tatra Mountains which are in the Hutsul region of Eastern Carpathians. The chapter notes how the title is divided into three parts which tackle the Tatra Mountains, the land of the Hutsuls, and the Bieszczady Mountains.

Keywords:   Carpathian Mountains, Tatra Mountains, Hutsuls, Bieszczady Mountains, Poles, Alps, Pyrenees, Europe
