Tuchola Forest National Park

Nierybno Lake

The Tuchola Forest National Park (Park Narodowy "Bory Tucholskie") is located in the heart of the Tuchola Forest, the largest woodland in the northern part of Poland. Park is small (46.13 square kilometres) but it is surrounded by a larger protected area called Zaborski Landscape Park. The Park forms the core of the Tuchola Forest Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO). The area was formed during the last glacial age and is covered with low hills, fields of glacial sands, and post-glacial lakes.

Seven Lakes Stream

The borders of the park cover only the area of the Seven Lakes Stream watershed (Struga Siedmiu Jezior). There are more than 20 lakes in the Park, numerous forests, meadows and peatlands. In the lakes and rivers live 25 species of fish. There are around 144 species of birds, including crane and eagle owl and wood grouse - the symbol of the park. A particularly important part of fauna are bats.
