    Polish National Parks – “Ujście Warty” National Park

    The natural, landscape and cultural values of the “Ujście Warty” National Park make it a perfect place for various forms of ecotourism. Due to the relatively low intensity of tourists, the area also attracts lovers of vast spaces, peace, and silence. The “Ujście Warty” National Park is situated in the western part of Poland, within the estuary of the Warta River to the Oder River.

    It is the youngest national park, established in 2001. Its area is 8074 hectares. It is one of the most important places in Poland in terms of ornithology. The symbol of the park is the Bean Goose.


    The “Ujście Warty” National Park (called also the Warta Mouth National Park) is a unique wetland area, which is one of the most important ornithological sites in the country and the largest reserves of water and marsh fowl in Europe.


    The park’s landscape consists mainly of open meadows, pastures, and willow scrubs. A natural border between two areas, Northern Polder and the floodland, is the Warta River flowing through the middle of the Park. Forests and woodlands make up 1 percent of the protected area. The park is a unique European water and marsh bird sanctuary.
