Western Roztocze Gorges,
and especially the Szczebrzeszyn area itself, is the land of loess gorges. The network of naturally carved tunnels extends west of the city, and their most interesting cluster is located in Szczebrzeszyn Landscape Park. Numerous deep tunnels intersecting in the surrounding forests can stretch for several hundred meters, or even several kilometers. It is estimated that there may be as many as ten kilometres of gorges on one square meter of land. They're literally everywhere. They form a dense maze of intersecting and sometimes adjacent corridors, often several meters high and steep, almost vertical walls.
There is a reason why such a branched network of erosive depressions is called Szczebrzeszyn Hell – despite its undeniable charm, it is easy to get lost here. They can be visited alone or with local guides, using designated cycling routes and hiking trails. The most popular of them is the red didactic path leading from Szczebrzeszyn to Kawęczynek, between which there is a labyrinth of Hell Gorges. Detailed maps are available at the Tourist Information Point, located in the Municipal Cultural Centre in Szczebrzeszyn.

Cultural Heritage Roztocze Sacred

Due to the constant interpenetration of cultures and religions - eastern with western, an important element of diverse cultural heritage in these areas is sacred architecture. Especially Greek Catholic churches are present, although nowadays many of them function actively as churches of other faiths. In Szczebrzeszyn there is a Greek Catholic Orthodox Orthodox Orthodox Orthodox Orthodox Orthodox Church of the Fall asleep of the Most Holy Mother of God, which in its present shape dates back to the 16th century, and functions today as an Orthodox subsidiary church. Its foundations probably date back to the turn of the 12th and 13th centuries. As a result of conservation works carried out a few years ago, beautiful frescoes from the 16th and 17th centuries were discovered, which are worth seeing together with the entire restored temple.

Among the monuments of sacral architecture of Roztocze there are also Roman Catholic churches. An interesting example are the late Renaissance (17th century) churches of St. Nicholas and St. Catherine in Szczebrzeszyn, or the Baroque church of St. John Nepomuk in Zwierzyniec (18th century). In turn, the most valuable wooden temples include the 17th-century larch church of St. Stanislaus the Bishop in Górecko Kościelny and the church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Tomaszów Lubelski from 1627.

The monuments of Jewish culture have also been preserved in Roztocze. In Szczebrzeszyn there is a synagogue from the 17th century. Currently, it has been the seat of the Municipal Cultural Centre for over 50 years. Fragmented decorations of the walls and the frame of the former altar cabinet, located in the main hall, have been preserved inside. Near the city center is one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Poland. As one of the few survivors to this day, he worked continuously from the beginning of the Jewish settlement in this area until the time of the Holocaust. Currently, there are about 2000 matzevot from several centuries, the oldest from the beginning of the 17th century.

On the Roztocze Środkowy in Józefów Biłgorajski there is a synagogue built in the 1970s. 19th century, in the place of the 18th century wooden temple. A stone aroma of ha-kodesh has been preserved in the former prayer hall, and a strip of arcade recesses is visible on the walls. Currently, the synagogue serves as the Public Library. In this city you can also find fragments of the former Jewish cemetery, one of the oldest in the entire Lublin region. Kirkut was most likely founded in 1725. The matzevahs are built of a local building, located on the slope of the hill and set in an unusual way, i.e. in a westerly direction. The oldest dates back to 1737. On the matzevahs there are inscriptions in Hebrew, traces of polychromy have also been preserved.

Historic urban layout
Apart from religious buildings, Roztocza towns and villages are worth noting, whose spatial layout and buildings perfectly illustrate the lives of their inhabitants from several centuries ago. Such towns include Guciów, a village located in Roztocze Środkowa, where the Guciów Farmhouse is located - an ethnographic museum entered in the register of monuments. It is a nearly two hundred year old peasant farm in the mite style. It consists of a cottage, barn and barn with attic. Near the homestead, on a nearby hill are the remains of a former fortress, operating in this place from the 9th to 11th centuries. There are also burial mounds in the area.

An example of a globally unique architectural and urban layout is the Old Town in Zamość. In the 1990s, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as an example of Renaissance urban development. The Town Hall at the Great Market Square, the surrounding tenement houses, the former Zamoyski Academy, the Zamoyski Palace and Arsenal are just some of the many historic, seventeenth-century secular buildings in the city. In addition, Zamość churches, churches or synagogues are worth seeing due to their unique historical and cultural value.

Zamość Ordinance A
significant group of objects and elements of the cultural heritage of Western and Central Roztocze, including numerous parks and nature reserves, was left behind by the Zamość Ordinance, whose activity lasted in these areas for nearly 350 years. Its capital was Zamość, founded by Jan Zamoyski in 1580, and four years later Zwierzyniec became a summer residence, today a city whose name comes from the animal reserve established there. To this day, it is one of the most frequently chosen places to relax in Roztocze due to the omnipresence of nature and urban monuments from the Ordination period.

Another example of traces of Ordinance activity are public utility buildings, such as the classicist complex of school buildings in Szczebrzeszyn founded in the first half of Of the 19th century, the current Zamoyski School Complex, or the Town Hall in Szczebrzeszyn. Industrial facilities were also being built. The main building of the brewery in Zwierzyniec from the beginning of the 19th century and more than a hundred years old brick mill in Szczebrzeszyn are still existing. In addition to them, the Zamość Ordinance had numerous tar mills, distilleries, paper mills, forges, glassworks, ores, sawmills, windmills, the existence of which is reminiscent of the remains of the building in the form of ruins or the name of mite towns, such as Hamernia, whose name comes from the forge that once existed here.

Apart from the above-mentioned, Roztocze has many more historic buildings from the times of the Zamość Ordinance. Wanting to get to know the activities of this aristocratic family in more detail, it is worth using the designated hiking and cycling trails in the footsteps of the Ordinance, departing from Zamość, Szczebrzeszyn, Zwierzyniec, Klemensów or Józefów.

Landscape Parks
Due to the huge forest complexes and natural wealth of Roztocze, it was decided to create the Roztocze National Park and Jaworów National Nature Park in the entire region - both in Poland and Ukraine. In addition, there are numerous Landscape Parks, including Solska Forest, Krasnobrodzki Landscape Park, Szczebrzeszyński, Południoworoztoczański and Roztocze Rawskie, as well as dozens of other nature reserves and monuments.

Protection of unique flora and fauna
The vast diversity of flora and fauna abounds in dense forests and forests, and consequently also rare species of numerous rodents, amphibians, reptiles and birds. In 2010, the entire Roztocze area was listed by Birdlife International, an international bird conservation organisation, as an IBA (Important Bird Area) bird refuge, where all species meet the criteria of endangered species on a European scale (black stork, bumblebee bee, lesser spotted eagle, auricle and others) or worldwide (derduck).

Central Bike Route
In addition, numerous wooden houses, mansions, water mills, churches, shrines and old cemeteries throughout the region encourage active leisure in the form of hiking, biking or kayaking. The most famous cycling route in the region is the Roztocze Central Cycling Route, divided into three sections: Kraśnik – Zwierzyniec, Zwierzyniec – Hrebenne, Hrebenne – Lviv. On the other hand, the most popular canoe routes take place on the Tanew and Wieprz rivers.

The special values of Roztocze's natural environment are also conducive to the maintenance and development of climate therapy. In the South Tatras Landscape Park there is a spa in Horyńc-Zdrój, with sources of extremely valuable mineral waters and its own mud deposits. Saline springs and its own mud can also boast a spa in Krasnobrod, where healing traditions date back to the 18th century.
