Szczeliniec Wielki is the highest peak of the Stołowe Mountains, most of which are strictly protected by a national park. The fable-styled shapes of the rocks make the landscape of this place look incredibly picturesque. The unique sculpture is an effect of its geological structure.
Szczeliniec Wielki is the remaining of the upper layer of sandstones, in which the erosion carved fantastic rocky formations, which resemble silhouettes of animals and people, such as a sitter, a mammoth, a camel, an Elephanmt and the Head of Princess Emily. The tourist trail leads to the top through 665 stome steps, which were built in the early 19th century.
Not far from Szczeliniec Wielki you can see the peak of Szczeliniec Wielki, which is strictly protected and unavailable for tourists.
