Short characteristics:

Branisko Hill Range is passing in north-south direction in 20kms length, with width of 3-7 kilometres. In its variegated geological composition, the gneiss, granits, limestones, dolomites, quartz and comglomerats are dominating. Range relief has mountaneous character, with levelled grounds, rocky forms and karst formations.

Branisko highway tunnel route Poprad-Prešov enables to overcome this powerful ridge rampart. This hill range belongs to moderately warm and cool climatic area. In north, pine trees and pine-fir forests dominate, whereas in east beach-wood forests and in south oine forests are to be found. The parts, where the forests are missing, are covered with meadows, pasture-lands, bushes and arable soil.
