Biebrza National Park - a unique place
The choice of the Biebrza National Park as a place where we spend a holiday is a great decision, especially for active tourists who love the direct contact with nature. In this area because we have the opportunity not only to admire the incredible and untouched by human activity of nature, but also to actively spend time outdoors. The Biebrza National Park prepared many hiking trails that can be overcome in various ways. Departure in these pages is certainly a treat, especially for nature lovers, who in this area can meet very rare, especially among birds and plants. There are in fact many marshes, which produce a special microclimate.
Rest in a quiet place
In Poland, you will find many places that are ideally suited to spend time in a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Most often affects the local climate and the lack of many tourists in this area. In which the Polish side should you choose if you want to spend your holidays in nature? The answer to this question is not simple. Many attractive tourist regions is visited by crowds of tourists and this means that we have less and less contact with the located there flora and fauna. Therefore, we plan a vacation outside the tourist season then Gorce, Tatry and around Biebrza will certainly be much more peaceful than if we would choose in this area, for example, in the summer.
