Description of the trail:
The Tulkiaragė Cognitive Path tells the unique story of Tulkiaragė, created by water and human. Since the formation of this area (approximately 400 years ago), the humans have settled there: they built bastilles, set up a polder, mowed and supervised the fertilized meadows.
The Aquatic Warbler – the largest in the world – has settled down here. This globally endangered bird has been painted on the restored pumping station that acts as a bird observation tower and a living school of nature.
Not only the station is original, but also the other structures at the path. Several interesting stands of unusual shape have been installed along the path – you can listen to the Great Bittern while blowing into a glass bottle, look at the wood gnawed round by the beavers, fit the shoes used by swamp men in the peatbogs and test the special boots for horses. There are few small viewing platforms available to view the landscape, including a bench with unusually high legs, called the Dreamer`s bench.
