Located in southeast Poland Roztocze National Park is mostly covered by forest. The common trees here are beech, pine and fir. The park is also home to a lot of wildlife like wild boars, badgers, lynx, deer, and wolves. One of the greatest attractions in the park is a wild Polish pony herd. These horses lived in forest areas of Eastern Poland in the 18th century. Visitors can observe these ponies from a special observation tower near Echo pond.









In the south of the park are Szum and Nad Tanwia reserves within the reserves are small forest river valleys, lovely waterfalls and river step which are called szumy, szypoty or porohy. Visitors will find five trails, one bicycle route and several educational paths. Some of the best places to stay are in Zwierzyniec where visitors will find small hotels, campsites, a school hostel and various private lodgings.
