Poleski National Park, Near Lublin, Poland

View the photos of our latest trip to Poland below where we visited Poleski National Park, 55km from Lublin in South East of Poland in the Wlodawskie District.

Covering 9764 hectares (yep, pretty expansive) and established in 1990, it’s a beautiful and unspoilt nature reserve with forests with magical wooden walkways, numerous lakes (zoom in on the google map below), wetlands, marshes and fields with cows, deer and even… a stork’s nest on every pilon (those post still to come).

You’ll find 290 types of wildlife in this National Park (we didn’t quite see all of them), including 28 types of mammals (frogs, otters, voles, beavers, deer, elk and boar) and one of the richest collections of birds in Poland (including storks, herrons, owls and the black grouse)- plenty to see for birdwatchers and wildlife fans.

But most of all, you’ll see from the photos, it’s a place of peaceful calm, where you can spend all day exploring the beautiful unspoilt nature around you. One definitely to venture out to on your trip to Lublin!
