Establishedin 1989, it has an area of 15085 hectares. It preserves post-glacial landscape of the last glaciation with numerous watercourses and water basins (42), surrounded by forests and open spaces of fields and villages. The largest and the deepest lake of WNP is Lake Wigry, while its great peculiarity is the so-called ”suchary” – small, mid-forest lakes overgrowing by peatmoss communities. The most precious objects are under strict protection. They are, among others, some fragments of the Wiatrołuża River, the Czarna Hańcza River and Lake Wigierskie Białe. The greatest monument of WNP is a post-Camaldolese monastery.
