POLAND ~ Suchar IV Lake - Wigry National Park ~

... Beautiful lake view with yellow pine pollen floating on the water... a National Park famous for its numerous lakes... different in shape, size and depth... in total 42 of them... one of the youngest NP in the country... the most popular attractions of the park is the narrow-gauge railway, which was once used for transporting timber, and now provides the opportunity to see the lake from the windows of the wagons... also a great place for cyclists, hikers,canoeing and it has a national park museum... with the most wonderful horse stampsッ... Thanks so much Krystyna!!(✿ ♥‿♥)

The Wigry National Park is located in north-eastern Poland close to the Lithuanian border. The Park was established in 1989 with  an area of nearly 150.000 km2. The majority (63%) is covered by forests and one fifth is covered by water. It was was created for the protection of the post-glacial landscape, Lake Hańcza with a varied coastline and the forests of the Augustów Primeval Forest. It is named after lake Wigry, the largest of the Park's many lakes.

The European beaver is the symbol of the Wigry National Park. There are also roe deer, deer, elk, wild boar and badgers, lesser spotted eagles, sea eagles, buzzards and marsh harriers nest here.
