Warsaw to Vilnius: Day # 2
Day # 2 was opposite of my first... no freeway and endless trucks, but Polish nature at it's finest. By mid-morning, I reached Biebrzanski Park Narodowy. This park, located in the Podlaskie region, was established in 1993 and is the largest national park in Poland. The famous Biebrza marshes, is the most valuable natural ecosystems, which protects a vast and almost unchanged peat bog with a unique diversity of plant species, birds and other animals and natural ecosystems. This park is a very important nesting, feeding and resting places for wetland birds. In 1995 this park has been a recognized by UNESCO.
