Guidebook "Quality of starry sky on cross-border area of Poland and Ukraine and possibilities of nature- and astro-tourism development".
An illustrated electronic guidebook "Quality of starry sky on cross-border area of Poland and Ukraine and possibilities of nature- and astro-tourism development" was developed to promote the results of the Carpathian Starry Sky project to the general public. The desire of modern tourists to gain new knowledge and impressions, diversification of available tools and greater mobility create a constant demand and provide a constant interest in the starry sky and related objects. Astro-tourism is one of the youngest types of tourism, which is aimed at observing stars and astronomical phenomena (based on observatories or in places with low light pollution), visiting places where it is best to observe solar eclipses and the Moon, traveling to meteorites and comets.
Our guide shows selected places where you can observe and photograph the starry night sky on the Polish-Ukrainian border area. Which places of the Bieszczady Starry Sky Park and the Transcarpathian Dark-Sky Park can and should be visited at night to observe the phenomena in the dark night sky. In addition, we also show selected natural attractions related to astronomy and Earth sciences that can be visited by a night observer for daytime recreation, for training or improving photography and filming techniques.
We invite you to Bieszczady and Transcarpathia!
