Poland unforgettable memories

Attractions in podlaskie region

Białowieski National Park

Białowieża is placed in the very east of Poland, in the middle of the Białowieża Forest where the European bisons live. As an endangered species, they were taken special care in this region and they have become one of the most valuable natural treasures in this part of Europe. Through the years, Białowieża was the Polish kings' hunting area. Now there is still a park there and some buildings reminding former residencies. Tourists come here to admire the nature - with its rich hotel infrastructure, Białowieża is a great place to spend the time when we explore the wildest nature reserve in Poland.
