Šúr, a primeval forest at Bratislava’s doorstep

Did you know, that we have an untouched primeval forests right next to our biggest city? Such forest can be found in Sur nature reserve and is an area of European importance. So, what is so unique about it? It’s the biggest complex of alder moors in Slovakia and one of the biggest in Central Europe. This ancient place, with its uprooted giants and humid climate often resembles a real tropical rainforest. Peatbogs are also one of this forest’s characteristics. The second part of National Reserve is formed by Pannonian grove – a place of hundreds of years old oaks, huge ash trees and wild pears. Our path will lead us through both of these completely different natural habitats. Besides that, we will also visit a nearby fishpond, a home to many aquatic bird species.
