National park "Białowieża Forest"

Local nameНациональный парк «Беловежская пуща»
LocationRepublic of Belarus

Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park is a national park within parts of the Brest Region and Grodno Region in Belarus adjacent to the Polish border. It is a preserved part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Białowieża Forest, the last primaeval forest fragment of the European woodlands that once stretched across the European Plain. It is home to a large population of European bison, the continent's heaviest land animals. The border between the two countries runs through the forest with the Białowieża National Park on the Polish side of the border. Since May 2015 there has been a visa-free regime within the forest for hikers and cyclists at the Pererov-Białowieża border crossing.
