Bieszczady National Park is the 3rd biggest national park in Poland and also the biggest one in the mountain area. In the park there is also the farthest south point of Poland – Opołonek Summit. The park was created in 1973 to protect Bieszczady highlands. There are two floral and climate zones: higher grass areas and lower forest ones. 80% of the park consists of deciduous and mixed forests which make this region especially attractive in autumn when Bieszczady mountains are colorful with all shades of autumn leaves. In the park we can find 58 species of mammals among them also the symbol of the park – lynx. We can find here almost all big mammal species typical to Poland, such as a bear, wolf, lynx, wild cat, European bison, and deer. In the park there are also 140 species of birds and especially precious big birds of pray. When it comes to flora, there are 30 endemic species and a great variety of other plants. There are also many trails for tourists and equally interesting environment and history paths. In Ustrzyki Dolne there is a teaching facility and natural history museum with the biggest collection of natural specimens in Poland. For lots of tourists this region is perceived as the most natural mountain region in the country.
