Bieszczady Railway Bicycles (draisines) is one of the latest attractions in Bieszczady. Established in 2014 but a year later it was acknowledged by the Polish Tourist Organization as the Best Tourist Product in Poland. The main draisines station is located in the former PKP station in Uherce Mineralne.

Through Uherce runs the railway line No. 108 built in 1872 during the time of Franz Josef and it was the First Hungarian-Galician Iron Railway. Since 2013 due to the poor condition of the track, the section between Nowy Zagórz and Krościenko has been definitely out of service. Bieszczady Railway Bicycles (draisines) are combination of railway traditions and tourism. Orange draisines are 4-person whereby two of them are pedaling while two others on the back bench are resting. The draisines - as used to trains - start out in a column according to the timetable for several routes, differing in terms of length. Tourists get traditional tickets in the form of cardboard blocks with a hole after checking by ticket machine. The train station was thoroughly renovated, on the walls inside and outside are painted figures dressed in clothes from the time of Franz Josef but with the real faces of the people who contributed to the creation of this attraction.

Inside one can buy unique souvenirs. Bieszczady Railway Bicycles (draisines) is the largest draisines rental in Europe.
