Estonian Bogs #visitestonia #estonia100 #ViruRaba #KakerdajaRaba #KõnnuSuursoo

jaladVisiting a bog is fun in every season.

I did my photos in June. It was a rainy day, so the quality of photos, not that excellence.

A peat bog is a mix of water and land. Bog water is low in salts, so it does not quench thirst, but because of acidity, this water is pure and drinkable.

Hiking in Estonia is always a good idea. Discover mysterious bogs. Find more information about hiking www.rmk.ee/eng

Did you know?
Mire landscapes cover around 22% of Estonian surface, with 6% belonging to bogs. In the whole world, only the surface of Finland, our neighbour to the north, has more wetlands than Estonia, and Estonians take a lot of pride in that.

Bogs cover a fifth of the mainland area in Estonia, of which bogs are the most ancient, stretching back to over 10,000 years. About a quarter of Estonia’s plants grow only in mires, among them many relict species from the Ice Age.

Estonians have a saying ” vaga vesi, sügav põhi”- still waters run deep. Saying this, we are thinking about people who may seem quiet, but wait and see…:)

But this saying describing very well bogs.
It seems like grass, land, solid ground, but…. be careful, it is wet and soft. You could sink and drown.

The 1st of June International Day for Protection of Children
I like books and reading.
Eno Raud’s children’s books Naksitrallid‘ and ‘Jälle neid naksitrallid‘ are the most translated Estonian books. You can read about the adventures of Muhv, Sammalhabe, and Kingpool in Bulgarian, Georgian, English, Latvian, Lithuanian, Eastern and Western Mari, Romanian, Norwegian, Polish, German, Slovak, Finland, Danish, Czech, Ukrainian, Hungarian, and Russian.

This book has been written a lot of years ago but this talking about the very important topic: how to preserve and respect nature. That the balance is the most important and even rats are an important part of the total balance.
