Description of Sebezhsky National Park
Sebezhsky National Park is located in the southern
part of the Pskov region. Beautiful and sparsely populated lake
region, located at the junction of the borders of Russia, Belarus
and Latvia. The national park covers an area of 50 thousand
hectares to the south-west of the city of Sebezh. The reserve
extends to the very border with Belarus, where it smoothly passes
into the Osveisky landscape reserve. There are 360 lakes here,
many of which are connected by channels and are part of the ancient
path “From the Varangians to the Greeks”.

Visitor Center Okeyavki. A small museum dedicated to the nature
of the reserve. In addition to the usual stuffed animals, herbariums
and photographs, the museum has special monitors on which you can
monitor the life of birds in real time with the help of cameras
installed next to bird nests.
There are in the park and non-natural attractions:
(6 km south of Sebezh) - a village in which the remains of an old
stone windmill are preserved
Sosnovy Bor (14 km west of Sebezh) -
in the past, the closed settlement of Sebezh-5, where until 1997
strategic missile forces were stationed. The village itself still
exists, but various bunkers and hangars are abandoned: access to
them is now free.
