Photographer's Note

I am enjoying my lazy holidays in Bory Tucholskie. Yesterday we went to the forest to look for mushrooms. 45 years ago we used to come back from the walks with baskets full of them. Maybe it is too early now, no mushrooms at all. But it is sunny so the walkings are very pleasant. We found yesterday in the forest the monument of Swiatowid, LF remembered it. So at least one thing from the past.

he Tuchola Forest, also known as Tuchola Pinewoods, (literal translation of Polish: Bory Tucholskie; Kashubian: Tchlscz Br; German: Tuchler or Tucheler Heide) is a large forest near the town of Tuchola (Tucheln) in northern Poland, which lies between the Brda and Wda Rivers. It contains the Tuchola Forest National Park, which is at the core of the Tuchola Forest Biosphere Reserve, designated by UNESCO in 2010.
The area was formed during the last glacial age and is covered with low hills and more than 900 post-glacial lakes. With 3,200 km of dense spruce and pine forest, the area is one of the biggest forests in Poland and Central Europe.
