There will be a special wooden megaphone in the Slanské Mountains forest near Prešov.

Thanks to its shape, it will project forest sounds and the public will enjoy a true nature orchestra, according to the creators of the project.

Four young people from the Hlas Lesa (Voice of the Forest) civic association came up with the idea.

“Our aim is to make places that deserve our attention more visible,” said František Baláž, one of the project creators, as quoted by TASR.

Unique in Slovakia
