This is the last and only place in Europe where pristine forests is preserved in the state as it was in the prehistory. The symbol of park is zubr, the European bison (buffalo), the biggest mammal of the old continent. In 1919 in Bialowieza Forest died the last lowland bison. A few years later Polish scientists started a successful project of restoring the bison population. Today there live more than 200 European bison.

Bialowieza Forest is on the Byelorussian border, 230 km from Warsaw that is why we recommend spending 1 night in Bialowieza.
