The world of swamp nature in Tarnawa Wyżna

Tarnawa raised Peat Bog

The Bieszczady is a world of wilderness, gradually taking over former villages that were displaced during Operation Vistula. Tarnawa is another non-existent village, of which only the ruins of an Orthodox church and crosses remain. The beauty of the local nature is revealed in all its splendour in the peat bog, which survived despite attempts to drain it in the 1980s. A footbridge across the marshland allows visitors to admire the richness of the marsh fauna, including numerous species of insects and birds. The flora, meanwhile, consists of clumps of calamus, bushes and mosses, creating a beautiful, rugged landscape.
