Valley of the river Szala

Description

In the Őrség region the river Zala, which is just a trickling little stream here called „Szala”, had for a long time been a vital element of the landscape for the people settled here. Today it is primarily the landscape that represents the valley’s local importance. The alder groves along the stream bed and the traditional orchards on the hill sides and in the bottom of the valley are habitats of European communal importance.
