Białowieża Forest

Tips from the community

Moss clings to the stumps of long-dead trees. Lichen scrambles up giant oaks. Mushrooms sprout from the undergrowth. Welcome to the primeval lands of the UNESCO Bialowieza Forest. Some of the oldest woodland in the whole of Europe, it’s a strange, eerie, and unique place to explore. The piece de resistance is a possible encounter with a zubr (the mighty European bison) in the wild. For lodgings, rustic villages speckle the area, where taverns serve hunter’s stews and vodka.
