Biebrza National Park

First, let us give you a description of the park, which at 59,000 hectares is the largest national park in Poland.
At the center of the park meanders the Biebrza River, which empties into the Narew River, which forms the park's southern border.
In the east, the park borders on Belarus. This unique combination of swamp, forest, marsh and grassland is extensively used, and extends up to 20 km wide.   It is divided into three basins, the south, the central and the northern.  Since the population density is low, this natural moorland serves as a retreat for a variety of rare animals.

There are 263 species of birds, including 178 species which nest here.  These include cranes, terns of all varieties, the common snipe, the ruff, the black-tailed godwit, the snipe, the redshank, the lapwing, the black stork, the Cry-shell and the eagle, as well as the corncrake, the aquatic warbler, the penduline tit, the curlew, the bittern grouse and numerous species of ducks - just to name a few.
From April to June of each year, numerous ornithologists, biologists, nature lovers and enthusiasts gather in our marshes with their binoculars to watch the birds perform their courtship rituals, and listen to this rare natural spectacle.  The park also serves as an ideal habitat for many of our rare 4 legged animal friends.
Thus, you can often find a moose eating comfortably from the trees, and sometimes one can spot a beaver.  In any event, you can always see the work of these industrious rodents!  Even otters and badgers are found here; in winter, you can even hear the howl of the wolf.
Lovers of flora also flock to the park, enthusiatic about the plant diversity, as the wet marsh contrasts with dry land nearby.  The park is home to an abundance of plants which have become rare in Western Europe, such as orchids, lady's slipper, butterfly orchid, marsh gentian, eyebright, marsh marigold, marsh tea, sedges, marsh sweetheart, hemlock, fennel water, marsh cress, cotton grass, iris, and ... and ... and...!
