Hoteni Raised Bog – local interest reserve

The natural complex consists of one oligotrophic swamp and the 3 eutrophic lakes with specific plant and animal species of tremendous scientific importance. The peat strata floating on the 4 m deep water represents a perfect living environment for carnivore plants, relict species and of ice age reminiscence. The other 2 oblong-shaped lakes, in the same area are well known for their presence of 150 algae species, which gives the lake water its specific color. The luxuriant vegetation in the lake reveals a variety of fish and turtles that are unique species for this region.

Access possibilities: along Greenway, from Hoteni, red cross markings
