Upper Zemplín is the most eastern region of Slovakia. The region borders on Poland in the north and with Ukraine in the east. The typical Carpathian landscape with original virgin forest and rare fauna spreads in the north of the region. It offers intact nature, extensive oasis of silence with far-reaching views and picturesque little villages in the region of the Eastern Carpathian Mountains (Východné Karpaty).
