The Natural Beauty of the Narew River

The Narew National Park in northeastern Poland, with its unique river system, a network of interconnected channels and lots of marsh birds, is a great destination for a weekend outing any time of the year. Early spring, however, when nature starts to awaken, is a particularly good time to visit because of the special atmosphere and exceptional views.

The Narew River is the largest river in Poland’s northeast with a total length of 484 km, of which 36 km is on the Belarusian side of the border. The river starts in the Belarusian part of the Białowieża Forest. Its main tributaries are the Supraśl, Biebrza, Pisa and Bug, with the Narew National Park hosting watercourses such as Liza, Szeroka Struga, Kowalówka, Awissa, Turośnianka, Czaplinianka and Kurówka.

The Narew National Park protects a 45-kilometer-long stretch of the river that runs along a valley between the town of Suraż and the village of Rzędziany. Its most important feature is the unique natural beauty of the river. The unusual multi-channel river system features a dense network of riverbeds that alternately converge and separate, forming an intricate maze. The system is clearly different from those in other rivers in Poland and throughout Europe.

The Narew National Park covers swamp areas, so the best bet is to explore it by kayak or by the local pychówka boat. However, there are also kilometers of wooden footbridges from which sightseers can admire beautiful landscapes.
