Photos of Primeval beech forests UNESCO Slovakia
Unfortunately, Slovakia is not very well-known for its beautiful nature but it definitely should be. Besides my family and friends, our nature is what I miss the most from home when I’m traveling.
My very favorite forest where I often go is in the volcanic Vihorlat mountains. The middle part of it is now a UNESCO Site.
It was on the 28th June 2007 in New Zealand when the Primeval beech forests of the Carpathians in Eastern Slovakia were proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are part of the Carpathian mountains and are on the UNESCO list together with beech forests of Germany and Ukraine.
I took these photos around the lake Morské oko (literally translated as the Sea Eye) situated in the Vihorlat mountains in Eastern Slovakia, not far from my home town. It is one of my very favorite places in my home country.
