Situated along Poland's eastern border with Belarus, the Bialowieza (also Bialowieski) National Park protects 4,747 ha (11,730 acres) of one of the last remaining European primeval forests. Home to the once nearly extinct Wisent (European Bison), this beautiful park marks the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in Poland and contains some of the tallest and oldest trees in all of Europe. We're talking oaks that date back over 500 years, friends, housing wolves, stags, lynx and all sorts of other animals you'd expect to find in such an ancient and almost legendary reserve.
Guided tours are available but not necessary, so throw on some hiking boots and come experience on of the country's most pristine natural wonders.
Location:230 km (143 miles) northeast of Warsaw, along the border of Poland and Belarus.
