Bialowieza Forest into The Telegraph's top 25 tourist destinations in Eastern Europe

The Telegraph has made a list of the top 25 places in Eastern Europe to be seen.

In the top five are Tallinn, the Danube in Romania, Riga, Montenegro's national parks, and Lake Bled in Slovenia. Moscow and St. Petersburg are also there. When it comes to Belarus, the journalists offer to visit the Bialowieza Forest. This national park is ranked 18th.

"2,000 kinds of plants, 200 species of birds, well restored and the largest fragment of the ancient European forest," reads The Telegraph's article.

The authoritative British newspaper has repeatedly written about Belarus. In 2011, journalist Sara Evans visited the Bialowieza Forest, and wrote about the biggest European animals - bison. She recommended European tourists to take binoculars or a camera with a zoom lens, because outside enclosures bison look extremely intimidating.

Bialowieza Forest has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992. The reserve territory is also interesting thanks to the fact that the Kamenets and Svisloch districts have a few cemeteries of the 10th and 13th centuries.
