Chornohora Range, Carpathians - UKRAINE - UNESCO #1133
One official POSTCROSSING card! I must confess I was missing the feeling of registing a card and specially to receive a unknown card from a unknown person (swaps are fun, but this is the real pleasure of postcrossing). And when that unknown person takes time in reading our profile and picking a card that fits my taste, it's really a wonderful feeling - this time a nice postcard of Chornohora Range in the Ukrainian Carpathians, part of a UNESCO site... thank you very much Olha! With your card my count rises to 43 down, 919 to go! This postcard took 9 days to arrive!
The Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany are a serial property comprising fifteen components. They represent an outstanding example of undisturbed, complex temperate forests and exhibit the most complete and comprehensive ecological patterns and processes of pure stands of European beech across a variety of environmental conditions. They contain an invaluable genetic reservoir of beech and many species associated and dependent on these forest habitats.
