In the year 2014 after a hundred years of absence wolves came back to Bohemia (Bohemia is a large western part of the Czech Republic). Wolves coming from the border region of Poland and Germany settled in a wonderful landscape of the Macha County in the Central Bohemia. The territory of our wolves consits of large forests and deep marshlands with magnificent rounded hills and sharp rocky peaks rising over the landscape. Here our first wolf pack annually raises their pups.
Since the return of wolves we call this part of our country the Wolf Mountains.
