Poland is one of the few countries in Europe which can be proud of the reat variety of its landscapes and large areas of parkland rich with fauna and flora, protected and preserved in their natural state. The most important environmentally unpol-luted regions in Poland are within the boundaries of 23 national parks which occupy a total surface of 300,000 hectares or one percent of the entire country. Eight of them, the Babio- górski, Białowieski, Beszczadzki, Kampinoski, Karkonoski, Poleski, Słowiński and Tatrzański National Parks have been recorded on the UNESCO list of World Biosphere Reserves  with the Białowieski National Park, in addition, recorded on the UNESCO list of World Heritage.In these national parks nature lovers will find extensive marsh-lands, vast expanses of forests and the shifting sand dunes of the Baltic coast. They will also encounter the bison Europe’s largest mammal and with a bit of patience, skill and luck, a great variety of wild animals in their natural habitat. Poland is paradise for those who enjoy bird watching as it is home to 80 percent of all European bird species. Trails and educational paths leading through the parks are an easy way of getting to know nature first hand and for those who  wish to practice different forms of natural, or green tourism, the services of professional guides and specialized travel agencies are available throughout Poland.Poland is a Wonderland of Nature just waiting for You.

The park encompasses Mount Babia Góra (1,725 meters above sea level), the highest peak in the Western Beskid Range. The woods here are very similar to a primeval forest, the environmental value of which was recognized by the park’s entry on the UNESCO list of World Biosphere Reserves. The lower slopes are dominated by fir and beech forest mixed with spruce and sycamore trees. Spruce, mountain ash and dwarf mountain pine predominate in the upper slopes. An Alpine area, with its rare mountain plant species, is higher still. Hol-lows and gullies filled with rock debris are prevalent in the highest, less fertile areas. The highest peak, Diablak, has an Alpine quality to it. The forest shelters a multitude of animals including bears, red deer, wolf and lynx and is also the habitat of such rare bird species as the wood grouse.

Established in 1932, the Białowieski Na-tional Park is one of the oldestnature re-serves in Europe. It covers the central part of the Białowieża Forest which is known worldwide for its vast, virgin forest and the breeding grounds of the European bison. Today the largest bison herd to be found here is made up of over 300 animals. The park constitutes an area of mixed forests with an unusual abundance of diverse tree varieties which grow in their natural state, untouched by man, with many of the trees reaching heights seldom seen elsewhere in Europe. The park’s wildlife is particular-ly rich: the Białowieża Forest constitutes the nesting grounds for 120 species of birds and, in addition to bison, other larger mammals such as elk, red deer, wolf, lynx, and beaver are frequently seen here. In the special exhibition reserve, visitors can not only come in very close contact with the bison but also elks, wild boars and red deer. The most protected part of the park is a special conservation area with access to this area only in the company of a guide. The magnificent Royal Oak Trail is also worth mentioning, and visiting. The Bialowieski National Park has been recorded on the UNESCO list of World Biosphere Reserves and on the UNESCO list of World Heritage.
