The National Park Lagodechi in Georgia (10/12)

In the ancient forests of Lagodechi, an area of pure deciduous forest covering almost 220 square kilometres, there are nearly twice as many tree and shrub species as in all of Central Europe, more than 1,000 plant types in total. Many of them are only found here. Some of these are relics from the Tertiary era, which survived because the glaciers of the last Ice Age did not extend across the ridge of the Caucasus. A particular feature of the park is also the huge shrubs, which grow to over three metres high in the regions above the treeline and attract insects and therefore birds with their blossom. In the remarkable high mountain moors of the national park, there are animals and plants that were typical of the last Ice Age, including hawker dragonflies as well as cotton grass and sedge.
