Located part in Belarus and part in Poland Belavezhskaya Puscha is the Europe's last surviving primeval forest. And as such it is placed on the United Nations World's Heritage list. The harsh realities of a transition from socialist to capitalist economies are endangering Belavezha forest  today on both Belarusian and Polish sides as it is being used for hunting and forestry.

Belaviezhskaja Puscha gives strength to all of us. It carries the feeling of eternity, kindness and peace.
