Vysova [Висова; Polish: Wysowa]. Map: Lemko village on the Ropa River, now in Gorlice county, Little Polish voivodeship, Poland. Because of its mineral springs it developed into a health resort in the 19th century. In the 1930s an average of 700 patients a year visited Vysova. A Lemko wooden church from the early 19th century has been preserved there. In 1939, 890 of Vysova's 1,020 inhabitants were Ukrainian.
