4. Bialowieza
In the middle of Europe’s last Primeval Forest, a tiny village can be found. Bialowieza village is renowned for its charming wooden train station as well as a lovely vintage train. The railway station was built in 1903 for Tsar Nicholas II. Luckily, it survived both World Wars and turned into a hotel. Railroad wagons were transformed to Tsarist saloon cars where you can spend a night.
