Białowieża Forest is an ancient woodland that straddles the border between two countries, Belarus and Poland. It is located 70 km north of Brest, Belarus and 62 km southeast of Białystok, Poland. It is one of the last and largest remaining parts of the immense primaeval forest that once stretched across the European Plain. The border between the two countries runs through the forest. There is a border crossing for hikers and cyclists within it. The forest is home to 800 European bison, the continent's heaviest land animals. A security fence keeps the Belarusian and Polish bison herds physically and genetically separated. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve is located within parts of the Brest Voblast and Hrodna Voblast in Belarus, and on the Polish side, near the town of Białowieża in the Podlaskie Voivodeship.
Brest Fortress, formerly known as Brest-Litovsk Fortress, is a 19th-century Russian fortress in Brest, Belarus. It is one of the most important Soviet World War II war monuments commemorating the Soviet resistance against the German invasion on June 22, 1941. Following the war, in 1965 the title Hero-Fortress was given to the Fortress to commemorate the defence of the frontier stronghold during the first weeks of the German-Soviet War. It was then part of the Byelorussian SSR. The title Hero-Fortress corresponds to the title Hero City, that was awarded to an eventual total of twelve Soviet cities.
