Poland the only Nation to have 2 top 10 enchanted forests besides the massively bigger U.S!!
No wonder why I love forests it is in the blood =)
1. Crooked Forest, Poland
Looking like it fell out of a surreal Salvador Dali painting, the Crooked Forest (Krzywy Las) outside Nowe Czarnowo, Poland, has intrigued the public for more than 80 years.
The grove of about 400 pines was planted around 1930 in the former German province of Pomerania. The accepted cause of the forest's distinctive curve is some form of man-made tool or technique, but the method and motive remain unknown.
7. Białowieża Forest, Poland and Belarus
Białowieża Forest is an ancient woodland that runs along the border between Belarus and Poland. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the last, and largest, remaining parts of the primeval forest that once stretched across the European Plain.
Due to the lack of facilities, tourists rarely visit the Belarusian side. However, approximately 200,000 travellers head to the Polish section annually, taking guided tours of the park on foot or by horse-drawn carriage.
The forest is home to a number of large, ancient oaks, some with their own names, including the King of Nieznanowo, Emperor of the South and the Guardian of Zwierzyniec.
