The Roztocze National Park has its roots in the game reserve set up in Zwierzyniec by Jan Zamoyski towards the end of the 16th century. But the park itself was established as late as 1974 and covers a much larger area than the original reserve. The interesting flora and fauna of the vast forest interspersed with ponds and fields attract biologists and tourists alike.
There is one cycling route crossing the park and five hiking trails. The yellow cycling route that my husband and his friend took starts at Zwierzyniec, the seat of the park management, and goes on to the 'Echo' ponds, famous for their accoustic effects, with the little Polish horses grazing on their banks. The next stop is Florianka, a tiny village best-known for the ancient oak tree 'Florian' and for the 'crying stone'. Next you can visit the Guciow traditional farm, which will be described in a separate tip. Altogether, it's a great day trip for nature and bicycle lovers.

Directions: Zwierzyniec - Florianka - Guciow - Stare Gorecko
