In geographic classification, the term Beskid Mountains has several definitions, related to distinctive historical and linguistic traditions. Depending on a particular classification, designation Central in relation to the Beskids is also used with different meanings.[1] In Slovak terminology, the term Central Beskids (Slovak: Stredné Beskydy) is used to designate this section of the Beskid Mountains within the Outer Western Carpathians. In Polish terminology, the same region is also classified as the central section of the Western Beskids, but not under the term Central Beskids (Polish: Beskidy Środkowe), since that term is used to designate Lower Beskids of the Outer Eastern Carpathians.
