Truly amazing wildlife in Poland Posted by Kasia on Aug 21, 2020 in Animals, Environment, Nature
Wildlife (dzika przyroda) is something that adds to the beauty of nature. Each place has its own wildlife which is sometimes unique to that place.
There are many national parks that can make you a witness to the wildlife in Poland and here are many rock formations hidden in the forests. So, when you plan to visit this land anytime soon, what are animals that you can spot in this region?
I think that European Bison (żubr) should be on the list! European Bison is a symbol of Polish pride all around the world. No wonder that the largest sanctuary for the European Bison is located in Poland. Poland is a home to almost twenty five percent of the total European Bison population worldwide.
Here in Poland you will get a chance to see a lot of roe deer and reminisce about your childhood cartoons. Roe Deer (Sarna) is very common in Poland and I’m pretty sure you will see a lot of them during your visit to this country.
Another popular wild animal is Hedgehog (Jeż). The cute little spiny animals are found in abundance here at Poland. They are quite beautiful animals and their main food is worms.
Another favorite of mine is White Tail Eagle (Orzeł Bielik). This eagle can be considered an animal of quite importance because it represents the country of Poland. When you visit Poland, you will be easily be able to spot it on the flags and logos. And hopefully you will be able to spot one flying by…
Fierce looking Polish Fox (Lis)? You wouldn’t expect it to be spotted even in the most common regions like the main cities of Poland. However, lisy (plural from lis) are indeed one of the most popular creatures in the region.
Other wild animals you will most likely see in Poland are storks! Did you know that every fourth stork is Polish???
Narew Valley, sometimes called the Polish Amazon, is a great worthwhile eastern destination for nature lovers. Those who want to immerse themselves in the wild also get a choice of the forests of northern Poland, the Carpathians (Karpaty) and Sudetes (Sudety) in the south, and the river valleys in the west.
You don’t even need to go far from the country’s capital to see some of Poland’s main mammal species. If you live in (or are visiting) Warsaw, take a trip to the nearby Kampinos National Park (Kampinoski Park Narodowy), which is on the UNESCO’s list of biosphere reserves.
Whether you’re driving, hiking, kayaking or biking, Poland’s vast network of forests, river valleys and mountains offer nature lovers a wide choice of experiences to literally go wild in all seasons! Enjoy!
I also have a question for you! What animal were you the most surprised to see in Poland?
