Przełom Dunajca widziany z Sokolicy
The gorge, as seen from Sokolicy

River in southern Poland, right tributary of the Vistula river with a length of 247 kilometers. Formed from the confluence of Black and White Dunajec Dunajec. Slovak Dunajec, German Dunajetz or Dohnst.

Is a river in southern Poland and, simultaneously, a right tributary of the Vistula. Formed from the merger of two other rivers: the Black Dunajec and White Dunajec. River length of 247 kilometers, of which 17 km is the land border between Sromowcami Niżnymi and Szczawnica.

Dunajec is characterized by large and drastic fluctuations of water level, even up to eleven meters downstream and flow fluctuations that already several times (last time: 1934, 1970) caused floods.

The gorge is the most famous water route in Poland. This is a great breakthrough under the mountains: the Three Crowns and Sokolica. Flisacy on rafts przepływali it already in the XIX century, and do it until today. The river has long been possible to meet flowing kayaks and inflatable. Over here pretty fast, especially under high water conditions, and creates it on the threshold, and sometimes the vortices, which can be dangerous.

My travels.

As you may have noticed, nothing on this site has been added for some time. But no, I did not leave this project, I'm just busy with others. Currently I am building a website called Fshoq!, where I'm writing a travel blog, where you can find both my new and those old adventures. So if you are waiting for more of my texts or pictures, this is the place I think it is worth looking into. After I will make Fshoq! site more popular, I'm going to get back to Into the Shadows, as I'm having more and more explorations of abandoned places to describe. Meanwhile, see you later!
