Antique historian Herodotus (fifth century B.C.) wrote about the forest. It was also mentioned in the Hypatian Chronicle (in 983). In the late fourteenth century, Duke Yagailo of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania declared the forest a protected area and prohibited hunting there. The ancient forest has been protected for almost 600 years. There are nearly 2,000 giant trees in the BelovezhskayaPushcha, some of them pre-dating Columbus' discovery of America. The BelovezhskayaPushcha has since been added into the UNESCO World Heritage List.
