Nature-filled holiday: the national parks of Poland
Nature is one of the best reasons to choose Poland for a holiday. Poland features no fewer than 23 national parks that together cover an area of 300,000 hectares. Each of the parks has its own unique character, from shifting sand dunes (Slowinski National Park), primeval forests (Babiogórski and the famous Bialowieza National Park), to mountains, rock masses with kettle-shaped valleys formed during the ice age (Karkonoski National Park), not to mention lakes, peat and swamp areas (Poleski National Park), caverns, caves, ravines and rock formations (Ojcowski Nationaal Park). Eight parks are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “World Biosphere Reserve”, due to their unique flora and fauna. The Bialowieza National Park, along the border with Belarus, is also included on the list of World Cultural Heritage List and is famous for its virgin primaeval forests and the European bison (largest mammal in Europe) living freely in the wild. Marked trails allow hiking enthusiasts to enjoy the natural beauty to its fullest. Discover it all from our holiday homes in Poland!
