Region

Covered with forests and swamps, the sparsely populated historic region in the southern part of the Pripyat river basin. Due to the natural conditions and the low level of urbanization, the elements of traditional culture and folk crafts are well preserved here. For example, beekeeping or picking wild honey have already made Polissia worldwide famous. Their eco-farms and art farms appear in the place of free spaces and abandoned farms all over Polissia.
