Białowieża Forest


This list includes hotels and pensions plus selected high standard B&B places that have a website, functioning email or can at least communicate in English. The list doesn’t include all the accommodation available. In fact, there are many more B&B, agrotourist farms, camping grounds etc. but they don’t seem to advertise apart from a sign “rooms for rent” in their garden :)

To see the full list of accommodation in the Białowieża area – see local authorities polish pages here »
