Silva Gabreta - Genesis of the Šumava Mountain Forests

Silva Gabreta - Jak se rodí šumavský horský les

Šumava, or Silva Gabreta as the Romans called it, is the home to the largest fragments of natural mountain forests in the Czech Republic. The documentary shows how natural processes work in spontaneous restoration of forests. Man has restricted European nature to reserves. So a little bit of humility in the face of the unbelievable ability of nature to restore and sustain itself is desirable.
