In the forest you can find typical wild animals such as deer, foxes, badgers, squirrels and the dormouse. And if you take a look at the sky, you might see a golden eagle or a bearded vulture flying over the mountains.

The mountains let us experience a journey with ourselves!

Hello, my name is Michal. I come from Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, where I grew up in a housing estate. You are wondering what I am doing here?

Nature is a wonderful medicine that is available to everyone. You just have to come down and open all your senses. Come with me and I will show you how.
