The primeval forests, the bison, the beautiful nature
In a nutshell
Bialowieza – reminder of medieval forest of Europe.
The stalls and individual sellers just outside the Bison Reserve are well-worth a look.
Selling the local handicraft: handwoven baskets, embroidered table linen, objects made of straw or grass (very cute toy mice, for instance), they charge less than the city shops where you can also find some of these things. So get your souvenirs and presents while you are there. You'll pay much more for exactly the same products at the Cepelia shops.
In the picture: rather big samples of local handicraft outside the local bar.
What to buy: Local handicrafts, a special kind of grass repelling moths (zubrowka). Mind, the name Zubrowka is also a name for a famous Polish vodka with a few blades of this grass inside the bottle, so you should say "trawa zubrowka" when asking for just the grass.
What to pay: Real bargains!
