The map presents the region of north-western Slovakia, near Czech and Polish borders. The Kysucké Beskydy is a set of mountain ranges in the Kysuce region. Slovaks consider the mountains to belong to the Central Beskids, of the Outer Western Carpathians. The highest peak of these ranges is Veľká Rača, at 1236 meters. Most of the area is heavily forested, with some endangered species, and a large part of these ranges fall within the Kysuce Protected Landscape Area.
