Biebrza National Park


The valley of the slowly-flowing River Biebrza in north-eastern Poland is the most extensive largely unspoiled fen-land area in Europe and is not only a designated National Park but also an International Wetland covering an incredible 60.000 hectares. From its source a few kilometres from the Belarus border, the River Biebrza meanders for approximately 80 km without disturbance towards the River Narew. Unspoiled marshes interwoven with streams and blooming meadows and woods, and on higher ground picturesque hamlets of charming traditional wooden houses ..a breathtaking sight. The area is also inhabited by cranes, storks, white-tailed eagles, moose, beavers, otters and even a few wolves.
