Full of magnificent pines and numerous other trees, plants, and flowers, Syngrou Forest is a natural wonderland whose historic footpaths date back even to prehistoric times.

As visitors follow the constantly unfolding paths, they’ll come across archaeological findings that are evidence of the site’s journey in history all the way back to prehistoric times.
