Nature and parks of Belarus
The unique country of lakes, swamps, and dense forests that are home to European bison – this is what comes to mind first when someone asks about Belarus. This large country is located in the south of Eastern Europe. Belarus doesn’t have access to the sea. More than one-third of the country’s territory is covered with dense forests, and almost all territory has a diverse flora. This has helped Belarus to preserve rare trees, bushes, birds, and animals, maintaining a comfortable habitat for different species. The local climate is quite mild – it is moderately continental and doesn’t have big temperature fluctuations. The south of Belarus – Polesia – is a restricted area of everglades that is often referred to as “the lungs of Europe”.
