Przełęcz Karkonoska Poland, Jelenia Góra

Przełęcz Karkonoska

Przełęcz Karkonoska (literally the Karkonosze Pass) is a mountain pass in the central Karkonosze Mountains on the Polish-Czech border. At 1,198 m (3,930 ft), it is the lowest point of the main ridge of the Karkonosze and, despite lying on the Polish-Czech border, Przełęcz Karkonoska, the Polish name, has no Czech equivalent. In the Czech Republic, the area is usually referred to by the Špindlerova bouda (Špindler's Hut), a mountain hut located there. Another chalet, situated on the Polish side of the border, is called Odrodzenie.
