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”.

The tourism department organizes walking, water and even bus tours around the park.

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:
Glubochitsa (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.
