Niepolomice Forest consists of six natural preserves with a total area of 94.43 hectares. Individual preserves protect unique biotopes. Niepolomice Forest is mostly covered by mixed spruce woods but there are even hornbeams that are two hundreds of years old, ancient oak trees and rare varieties of water plants. The very centre of the forest is strictly protected and tourists are forbidden to enter it. It is a home to the heaviest European animals, Polish wisents. These bisons were brought here before the World War II. Niepolomice Forest can be observed in many ways. Four marked tourist trails cross the forest, as well as a cycle track and an educational path. Apart from rare plants also quite a lot of mushrooms grow in the forest which makes it a favourite picking location. A dense net of unmarked paths distributed upright ensures that even the most enthusiastic mushroom pickers will not get lost for a long time.
