Historical Towns and Villages
Hajnówka is one of the youngest Polish cities. It is the seat of the county, often called “the Gateway to the Forest”, because of its location on the border of the Białowieża Forest.
It is one of the best starting points for any adventure in the National Park. Among the most notable places, there is the Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity, which hosts the Hajnówka Orthodox Church Music Days Festival every year, with choirs from all over the world participating in the event. Tourists will also find a monument of a European bison, the private Museum of Ironwork and Blacksmith Craft, as well as the Museum and Centre of Belarusian Culture. Hajnówka is the starting station of the narrow-gauge railway.
