Are you the nature lover? During our tour we will be passing through one of the wildest and the most beautiful terrains in southern Poland ? Beskid Niski Mountains and Magura National Park. The forest covers about 90% of the park and is home to many animals, including Wolves, Bears and the rare Eurasian Lynx, but the king of them all is the elusive Eagle , who is also the symbol of the Park. The Nature Conservation Area was officially created in 1995, so it’s the youngest Park in Polish Carpathian Mountains but they are actively working in the area with modern nature protecting programs and educational methods. In 2005 they have opened the Educational Center with nature museum in Krempna village in the heart of Magura National Park. The exhibition is stunning, prepared by the best experts in museology and interactive exhibition theories.

We will see the main exhibition hall with interactive presentation of four seasons in the park. Environmental reconstruction was carried out very accurately, presenting flora and fauna as well as Beskids meadows and forests, for example there is a forest stream embedded in the autumn landscape.

So if you want to know how the beech forest is changing with the passing time, to whom is giving the shelter and how animals are surviving the harsh winter – you are welcome to visit the education center, to meet great foresters and park rangers and ask them any questions you may have!
