Białowieża National Park
Recognised as the country’s oldest national park, Białowieża is located northeast of Warsaw, adjacent to the Belarusian border. Since 1979, it’s been on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, thanks to its rich biodiversity and undisturbed nature (part of the park has been left untouched for over 800 years, and is now only accessible to biologists working on-site as well as small guided tourist groups of no more than 20 people). The park is home to over 250 bird, 13 amphibian, seven reptile and over 12,000 invertebrate species as well as 59 mammal species – including the largest population of European bison on the continent. Białowieża village is the area’s main tourist hub – here you can book tours, hire bikes and visit the Museum of Natural History and Forestry.
