Chapter Summary

The Narochansky National Park is situated in Pooserje, a region in the north-western part of the country, near the border with Lithuania. Twenty percent of the park consists of traditional and natural grasslands. The park belongs to two physical-geographical nature districts: the first is the Sventsyanskye Gryady; the second is the lowland of Narochano-Vilejskaya with the Pooserje or Valdai Glacier. The Northern part of the park shows the heavy impact of this glacier with strongly differentiated relief although the differences in height do not exceed 50 metres. The Southern part of the park is flat lowland with bogs and swamps. The Narochansky National Park with a surface of 97,300 ha was established in 1998. Forty percent of the park is used by farmers. However, farmers have to abide by some regulations that aim to protect nature values in the park.
