Kampinos National Park
Every landscape is a multi-layered record that requires reading, a natural microcosm and a chronicle of the activity of our ancestors.
Tygodnik Powszechny review of Adam Robiński's book Hajstry

Welcome to the Kampinos Forest

My name is Adam Robiński. I am a writer and a journalist. I have published books on nature, landscapes and human/non-human relations. I have received awards (Lądek Mountain Festival Grand Prix, Magellan Award, Nat Geo Poland award) and have been nominated to major literary awards in Poland. I cover stories on nature conservation, wildlife and everything that happens where nature and arts meet. You can find my writing in Tygodnik Powszechny weekly and Pismo monthly among others.

I am a licensed guide with Kampinos National Park, which is the second biggest national park in Poland. It is located in close proximity of Warsaw and is teeming with moose, wolves and beavers.

I will be happy to guide you in Polish or English around the Kampinos Forest. I can also show you beaver habitats in the national park and around Warsaw.
