Slideshows and movies about wildlife of Poland

Traveling abroad has always been in fashion in my country, at least from times which I can reach in memory, and nothing indicates that it is going to pass soon. However, for last few years I have been watching people outdoing themselves in inventing more and more exotic and extreme destinations where they would like to get necessarily.
