  • Amazing nature, lots of mushrooms, but you should be aware of snakes. If you’re looking for virgin nature, you can find here different landscapes, sands and swamps and beautiful light forest with a carpet of green soft moss and it’s endless, in this place you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Grate place to pick up mushrooms! There is also a boat station on the Desna river where you can take motor boat and research the river which is also reach with fish. Unfortunately connection in this areas is almost absent.
  • Very splendid nature, great views to the ancient river Desna.
