National Park Smolensk Pozeria

Smolensk National Park is a member of the federation of European national parks and is a member of the UNESCO program “Man and the Biosphere”. Scientists from USA, Poland, and Belarus have more than once visited the park for scientific research.
Annually, the park is visited by over one hundred thousand tourists. The tourists are especially impressed by the cleanness and majestic might of the lakes, of which the total number in the area is over 35. Each lake is unique in form, terrain, and coastal zone. The most number of visitors can be found in the middle of August. That is the time of the festival “Fisherman’s Cuisine”. For the most part, the lakes are open for fishing. The most common type of fish here is roach, bream, chub, pickerel, perch, ruff, and many others.

Also, the national park is a real kingdom of the birds. Finch, titmouse, black headed and white headed chickadee and many other types of birds choose the area around the lakes as their home.
The most popular place for tourists is the lake Sapsho, the largest lake and the closest from the center. A great Russian explorer Preshevalsky called it “Miniature Baikal”. Here are the starting points for several natural hike paths, each one interesting in their own ways.

The cultural potential of the national park comes from the ancient times, as the lake chains were geographically linked with the water trade route “from the Vikings to the Greeks”. In the history of world wars, the park’s forests served as a base for partisan armed resistance groups.
A trip to Smolensk Pozeria- is a valuable time spent in the area of clear blue lakes, by the tourists. If you wish, you can visit the guest house with a real Russian fireplace. Here you can start feeling a bit Russian yourself, and fill yourself with the recharging energy of the Russian forests as well as get closer to the culture and traditions of the Russian people.
