Autumn in Latvia

DSC_0122

I am proud to say that I live in a country where we do have four seasons. This time- autumn! It is amazing here! You probably have seen pictures of colorful leaves. Yes, we have them as well. But, this time I want to show you something you might not have seen before. Ķemeri!

Ķemeri is a national park, located west of the capital Riga. It is easily reachable either with car, either with train. Once you get there, you might have an instant crush with the atmosphere and landscapes. This is such a calm place. Perfect for silent Sunday or any other day when you want to get out of the rush. I got so much energy there. It is really a magical place.

If you have a question, what is Ķemeri national park, then I would say that it is territory which is mostly occupied by forests and mires. It is also the third largest national park in the country by area, covering an area of 381.65 km². Forests occupy 57% of the total area of the park. Fragmented mosaic distribution of the forests is not typical for the territory, forests are relatively evenly distributed in the whole area of the national park with some inclusion of meadows and areas not covered in forest. Bogs occupy 24% of the total area of Ķemeri National Park . All three wetland types are found here – fens, transition and raised bogs. Lielais Ķemeru tīrelis bog is an internationally important wetland. Many species of plants thrive in the bog, especially mosses and orchids. There are wooden trails which take you around the area.

You can also reach a watchtower where you can see the whole landscape. I totally recommend you to come here and feel it yourself! Truly magnificent!

        It’s called “Dumme Mosse”. It’s basically like what you posted, a big “park” with swamps. Think it’s famous for the birds that visit it during spring 😀
