Mushroom hunting

View image

The richness and the variety of wildlife in the region played and plays also today an important role in the people's life. Gathering, like an economic activity, bears firstly on the wildlife. The variety of the forest fruits, mushrooms, and herbs offers pleasant and useful relaxiation, touring or even additional income. Among the forest fruits the most important are: raspberry, blue-berry and cranberry. The most common herbs are cowslip, centaury, cumin seed and yellow gentian. Among the mushrooms the most common are bolete, chanterelle, and saffron milk cap.

The region is very rich in mushrooms, there is a large number of toxic ones, as well; therefor it is recommended to contact the local program-organisers, who offer "Mushroom hunting" tours, with guides who know very well the edible and toxic mushrooms.
