West Beskids

 

a group of discontinuous medium-altitude mountain massifs and ridges in the western part of the Western Carpathians in Poland and Czechoslovakia. They are approximately 250 km long, with heights to 1,725 m (Babia Gora). They are composed mostly of Cenozoic sandstone and shale. The summits are usually flat. The lower slopes are covered with beech and sprucefir forests; above these, sub-alpine meadows are found. There are oil deposits on the northern slopes.
