🎉 The oldest and largest national park in Poland, the Białowieża National Park, celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. A century ago, Poland’s Białowieża Forest has been proclaimed as a National Reserve which is Europe’s only surviving primeval forest that once stretched across the European Plain, and knows for being the home to the European bison, the continent’s largest land mammal.
The Białowieża National Park situated in the north-east part of Poland close to the border with Belarus and covers a part of the Białowieża Forest extending over 100 square kilometers. It’s an ideal place for nature lovers as well as a cozy home to thousands of plant and animal species, where, people can observe the unspoiled natural environment and rare species of fauna and flora including the largest free herd of bison in the world. Not to mention the health benefits of breathing the cool fresh air in the primeval forest far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you are passionate about outdoor sports, there are also plenty of options to explore the park by hiking, biking, kayaking, and even taking a polish horse-drawn sleigh in winter.
