The dense foliage and disorderly ruins of damp trunks of Bialowieza support a dazzling diversity of plants and animals. Packs of wolves and herds of bison roam the forest. Cranes, pygmy owls, black storks and nearly all European woodpeckers are just some of the birds that first come to mind. Like a wilderness should, the Bialowieza presents itself as an unruly area that hides its treasures well. The nature enthusiast will need a good guidebook to get the most out of a visit to the forest.
The Nature Guide to the Bialowieza Primeval Forest is this guide. It combines interesting and insightful ecological explanations with up-to-date and practical tourist information. Detailed descriptions of hiking trails and bike routes are conveniently linked to information on everything you want to know about the whats, wheres and whys of the Bialowieza's splendid nature.
