Poland: connect with nature at the Bialowieza forest


We planned with a friend to visit Belarus, we were all ready to fly, but at the moment of check-in from the Vilnius airport, we were told my friend could not board! Belarus changed the entry requirements for Indians, and as my friend became grounded in Lithuania, I decided to stay with her.  Sometimes, the unexpected brings the best travel experiences !

We rented a car and drove down to Poland, to the Bialowieza forest, a UNESCO world heritage site. This forest is one of the largest in Europe, going over Poland and Belarus, and is home to a few hundreds European bisons. We spent several days in the area, waking up at 3 o’clock each morning to catch.  Check out their website !
