The richness of nature and landscape The City and Parish of Serock are located on the Ciechanowska Upland (Wysoczyzna Ciechanowska) in the picturesque meander of the Narew River and Zegrzynski Lake, where the abundance of natural beauty of the place is enhanced by elements of local culture. The beauty of landscape is best exemplified by the high and steep slope of the Zegrzynski Lake, which, carved by numerous ravines, enriched by unique forms of fauna and flora, and shaped by waters of the lake, affords the most appealing and sought after tourist attraction of the region, popular with holiday-makers throughout the year. The captivating landscape can be best appreciated from the side of the lake, where it is possible to contemplate the vegetation on the slope and the fragmented terrace of the lake. Into the natural ecological system of the bands of the lake, training and leisure resorts as well as private summerhouses have been skillfully inserted. The area has a great potential for setting up walking routes for tourists. The landscape is also complemented by a variety of tree species, from slender Italian poplars, spreading black poplars, white poplars and oaks, to drooping willows and birches, to dense, low forms of brushwood. The occurrences of these species provide the basis for establishing the boundaries of areas which deserve particular and legal protection, among which there are:
