Bukowiec, a non-existent village with a rich history

Asphalt road among bushes and trees with a visible panorama of forest hills and a green information plate on the right


The village was probably founded in the 15th century, destroyed during the Great Northern War, and then rebuilt and industrialised in the following centuries, only to be burned to the ground during Operation Vistula. Bukowiec is an excellent example of how rich rural life was. In addition to the ruins of religious buildings and cemeteries, including a small war cemetery from 1914-1915, you can find the remains of a potash mill - a potassium carbonate factory, a barrel factory - a barrel production plant, as well as the embankments of a narrow-gauge railway and a dam on the Halicz River.
