The Las Bielański is a one of a kind nature reserve in Warsaw. It’s the only remains of the Puszcza Mazowiecka, a medieval forest that vanished alongside the city’s development.
Wild animals use this forest in their migrations between the Vistula River and the Kampinos National Park. It`s a beautiful area where you can find wilderness as well as historical architecture. Here in the middle of the forest on Dewajtis Street stands the old Camaldolese Monastery with buildings from the 17th century, untouched during the Second World War.
You can get to the forest by bike from the city center in 30 minutes riding along the Vistula River most of the time. Nature in Warsaw is something incredible and it`s very easy to reach.
