Found towards the south west of the city limits, the forest was the scene of Poland's worst air crash on the May 9, 1987. A memorial stone pays tribute to the 183 people who died. The forest is also believed to be the hiding place of a warthog that escaped from Warsaw Zoo while being transported to start a new life in San Diego. Locals have named the fugitive Non Diego.
