Karkonosze is a mountain range located
in the north of the Czech Republic and the south-west of Poland, part of
the Sudetes mountain system (part of the Bohemian Massif). The Czech-Polish
border, which divides the historic regions of Bohemia and Silesia, runs
along the main ridge. The highest peak, Snezka, is the Czech Republic's
highest point with an elevation of 1,602 metres. On both sides of the border,
large areas of the mountains are designated national parks (the Krkonosze
National Park in the Czech Republic and the Karkonosze National Park in
Poland), and these together constitute a cross-border biosphere reserve
under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme. The River Elbe rises
within the Krkonosze. The range has a number of major ski resorts, and
is a popular destination for tourists engaging in downhill and cross-country
skiing, hiking, cycling and other activities.
