An episode from the series TWENTY MASTERPIECES OF NATURE
6,000 years ago a forest enveloped the central plain of Europe, from the Carpathians to the Baltic Sea. Today, only a small area remains intact.
The National Park of Bialowieza, a Unesco World Heritage Site, protects 163,000 hectares of what is a direct descendant of this prehistoric forest.
