  • A beautiful and very large Park. Numerous hiking trails available and lookout towers. It is worth to take the Russian way, of course with caution, due to the Elk. With a little luck and at the right time you can see rare animals and birds. In the wetland areas, for example. the Red Swamp, you have to reckon with the hordes of mosquitoes, which deters not just anything. Before a visit to check out the available online maps and blogs natural. A separate attraction in the Park is worth a visit Osowiec fortress.
