The Roztoczanski National Park was founded in 1974. The park is typical for its slightly hilly landscape intersected by ravines and mountain passes. The Wieprz river flows there. Most of the terrain is covered by dense forests, 90% beech and fir. The Roztoczanski National Park is the home of bird species, deer, elks, wolfs, foxes, wild-boars, lynx and a range of protected amphibians and reptiles. The so-called Polish horses, the descendants of wild forest horses, are particularly popular. These horses are considered symbols of the park. In the 1990s the paleontologist Gerard Gierlinski discovered prints of Mesozoic dinosaurs there.
the Roztoczanski National Park offers 5 hiking trails with a total length of 40 km. There is also one 10 km cycling path and 7 marked educational trails. The best starting point to get to the park is the town of Zwierzyniec . It also hosts the park management and a nature history museum.
