About park

Slobozhanskyi National Nature Park is the land of beavers, picturesque forests and mysterious swamps. You will be fascinated by every spot of the unique territory which includes about 200 swamps and forest lakes, pine and mixed forests. This is the perfect place for watching the beavers and their amazing building activity: all local waterbodies have lodges, dams, burrows, channels and trees with typical biting marks. 

 

On the swamps, you will see carnivorous plants (sundews, bladderworts) and peat moss (the main peat producer). In the forests, there is a diversity of trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants; you will be fascinated with the incredible variety of primroses in spring and mushrooms abundance in autumn. You can also meet the timid inhabitants of the park — the European roe (Capreolus capreolus), hares (Lepus) and the European pine marten (Martes martes). The park is home for a large number of birds, insects and other animals. It protects 51 animal species and 22 plant and mushroom species listed in the Red Book of Ukraine. 

 

You can not only enjoy the nature here, but also relax with your family and friends since a complex of about 10 tourist sites is created and still developing in the park. There are educational trails, travel routes, recreational and camping zones.
