Sudety mountains - where are they?
The Sudetes "su??di?ti?z" are a mountain range in Central Europe, also known in English (from their names in German and Czech/Polish) as the Sudeten or Sudety mountains.
The range stretches from eastern Germany along the northern border of the Czech Republic to south-western Poland. The highest peak of the range is SnÄ›Å¾ka (Polish: ÅšnieÅ¼ka) in the KrkonoÅ¡e (Polish: Karkonosze) mountains on the Czech Republic?Poland border, which is 1,603 metres (5,259 ft) in elevation. The current geomorphological unit in the Czech part of the mountain range is KrkonoÅ¡sko-jesenickÃ¡ subprovincie ("KrkonoÅ¡e-JesenÃky").
The KrkonoÅ¡e Mountains (also called the Giant Mountains) have experienced growing tourism for winter sports during the past ten years. Their skiing resorts are becoming a budget alternative to the Alps.
