Post subject: Carpathian Troy
Exactly in one week, our guests participating in October Galicia Tour, will be visiting Carpathian Troy in Trzcinica.
This is an example that the history of southern Poland is much longer than we can expect. One of the earliest strongly fortified settlements known in Poland, dated to the beginnings of the Bronze Age, has been discovered in Trzcinica, in Podkarpacie region.
It was built as early as over 4000 years ago! The settlement have been located on the steep hill dominating over the Ropa river valley. This isolation and inaccessibility of the terrain protected the settlements from damage. Even today some walls which remained are 10 meters high (33 feet)!
