The Tatra Mountains are the only high-mountain area in Poland. Therefore, it was always more difficult to access, and the difficult living conditions meant that the area was not developed by man for many centuries.
This allowed for the free operation of the forces of nature and saved the Tatra Mountains from major transformations. The Wallachian wandering pastoralism did not leave a permanent mark on the nature of the Tatras. Only industrial activity made significant changes to nature.
