Unique fauna & flora
This is a land defined by its endless evergreen forests. Imposing firs and spruces jut skywards, with the shorter pines interspersed amid the thick undergrowth that makes for a perfect hiding place for countless deer, and the largest population of large carnivores in all of Europe, including wolves, brown bears and lynx. Intrepid travelers venturing high enough might be lucky to sight the elusive black mountain goat.
Unique flora found in the area includes: Pietrosia levitomentosa, Rhododendron myrtifolium, Alnus incana, Pinus mugo.
