The uniqueness of The Biebrza Valley and Wetlands:

The floodplains of Biebrza

The floodplains of Biebrza are among the last untamed rivers in Europe so the unique wilderness of the area offers many delights for nature lovers. For example, the meandering Biebrza River is a living river which floods in spring, thus turning large meadows into lakes. Apart from picturesque scenes, Biebrza is home to a large bird population, which represent one of the major bird clusters in Central Europe. The exceptional beauty of the area remains largely undisturbed so is therefore an amazing gateway for holiday makers who are looking for new experiences.
