List of National Parks of Poland

There are currently 23 National Parks in Poland. These were formerly run by the Polish Board of National Parks (Krajowy Zarząd Parków Narodowych), but in 2004 responsibility for them was transferred to the Ministry of the Environment. Most National Parks are divided into "strictly" and "partially" protected zones; there is also often a designated protective or buffer zone (otulina) adjoining them.
