A forest board with a map and a historical note about the village of Caryńskie.

The Caryńskie is the non-existing  village, located between the mountain range of Połonina Caryńska and Magura Stuposiańska. The village was lying along the Przysłup Caryński. The first information about the village is from 1620, however it is highly probable that this area had been inhabited by the Boykos, a group of highlanders, earlier. Due to the mountainous location of the village, far from the travelled routes, the inhabitants were living there in some kind of isolation. They had maintained the lifestyle and the traditions, which had been ruled there from years.
