TRACE 2016 will be held at the Conference Centre of Białowieża National Park in Białowieża, a village in the heart of the Białowieża Forest. This is the last natural forest in the European Lowlands which retains its primeval character, not to mention the largest free-living population of European bison, the biggest European land mammal. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve.
The Białowieża Forest attracts nature lovers, bird and animal watchers, photographers, tourists, and scientists from all over the world. Check the webcam in Białowieża and watch winter feeding of wild bisons and birds. You can explore the area on foot, by bike, riding on a horse, or by canoe. The region has also a rich history demonstrated by its mixture of religions, nationalities, languages and traditions. Do not forget to try the local cuisine – an original combination of tastes from Central and Eastern Europe, as the border between Poland and Belarus is less than 4 km from the Conference Centre.
Address of the Conference Centre: Białowieski Park Narodowy, Park Pałacowy 11, 17-230 Białowieża, Poland
