Belarus Naliboki Forest in Belarus

Hi. My name is Pavel, I’m from Belarus.

If you like traveling, the cleanest air, beautiful nature and animals I’d like to suggest you one such place.
It is called Naliboki forest. Here you can read about this place.

It is a large forest complex in northwestern Belarus which has area of 2400 square kilometers.
It consists of pines and firs and that is why it has healing air for lungs.

There are lots of rivers, lakes and swamps. Some rivers are good for kayaking. There are lots of mushrooms and berries, animals such as bison, deer, elk, wild boar, fox, raccoon dog, pine marten, black ferret, mink, ermine, hare-hare, lynx, wolf, beaver, otter, etc. Also it has lots of animals and birds from IUCN Red List.

It has rich history. There is hollywood movie about this place with Daniel Craig called "Defiance

Also there is European cycling route called EuroVelo-2 which goes through this place.

My family has estate in the center of Naliboki forest where you could come and have a rest. If you are interested please write me and I'll tell you in more detail.

Here are my contacts:

Here are photos and videos of this place. Thanks and have a nice day.

Thank you for your post and pictures. It looks great. You mentioned the motion picture "Defiance", which is about WW II Nazi resistance in your area. As you probably know, this movie is based on true events and there is also a documentary about it. Growing up in Brooklyn, New York I was friends with the children in the families (Bielskis) who the movie and documentaries are about and have heard a lot about the area. Maybe one day I'll visit, as I'm not sure where my own grandparents were from but know that it was somewhere between Minsk & Bialystok. Welcome and I hope you post more about the area.

Hi Steve! Thanks for your reply.

My families estate is just near the place where Bielski partisans were living(at a distance of 3 kilometers).

About 2 years ago descendants of Bielski partisans from all over the world(USA, UK, Canada, Israel, etc) came to this place. Aron Bielski(the youngest brother) and Tuvia Bielski daughter and Asael Bielski daughter were among them.

On this picture you can see them

Yes I will post more about this place with lots of pictures and videos and text when it gets warmer.
I also have instagram(naliboki.emerald) where I post pictures and videos of this place.

Yes, just saw this post about the forest. As you said, the movie Defiance is about the Bielski and those who lived and died with them. Including some of my relatives, who had been in the Mir Ghetto and escaped. If we are talking about the Naliboki Forest, I would like to take a minute to honor the memory of those in the Slutski and Pernikow families, including a baby, who died there.
