Sweden - Stockholm in summer
The National park of Tyresta is situated 20 km in the south-east of Stockholm. Very close to the city, it is however a wild and preserved place which covers 2000 hectares. One finds there 300 years old pines.
In 1999, a big part of this park (450 hectares) was destroyed by a fire. Fires of forest are rather current in Sweden since each year, approximately 1% of the Swedish forest burns : the forest burns on average every hundred years. That can appear much, but it is a natural process of regeneration.
In spite of that, it is a park where it very pleasant to walk and very easy of access. Regular buses coming from Stockholm are going there.
