Just wanted to post a highlight of my trip to Krakow - a road trip through the Carpathian Mountains to see the wooden tserkvas. Hopefully the route helps someone else. This route hits three separate UNESCO world heritage sites.
First, the countryside was spectacular rolling hills, the architecture is very pretty and the region was surprisingly vibrant for being so rural - saw lots of children, young people etc. The churches were beautiful inside and out, I will post a link to pix later. Most times no tourists or one other car, you show up, poke around, and village coconut wireless gets message and caretaker shows up with keys and then explains about the church. Some villages were actually signposted in Ukrainian, very remote areas. Then crossed into Slovakia, saw one more church from different unesco list and a 3rd site an old medieval town with huge square and gothic cathedral, beautiful but zero tourists and strangely empty of even residents.
Took about 11 hours.
