Daffodil Valley, Transcarpathia, Ukraine

Village of Kireshi, Khust district, is a home for miraculous daffodil plantation area of about 250 hectares. Scientists claim that it emerged immediately after the Ice Age due to the large amount of water coming down from the mountains. Human activities affected this area. At some point in Soviet history, the valley even was decided to be dug for growing crops. But, fortunately, they stopped in time and donated it the Carpathian Biosphere Reserve. Now Daffodil Valley impresses thousands of visitors by rare plants listed in the Red Book.

The best time to visit it is mid-May when the plants are in full bloom. There is also the Daffodils Museum in Khust for the most curious visitors.b5169.jpgPhoto amazing-ukraine.com

It comprises nearly 9000 hectares of land in the mountains surrounded by picturesque forests and vibrant waterfalls. Locals believe that the valley is inhabited by real fairies. Though about fairies there may be some doubts, the area surely features rare species of plants and animals.

Valley of Roses, Bulgaria

Since the 18th century the Damascus rose has been grown between two mountains near the town of Kazanlak. The first sprouts were brought here from Syria, even not assuming that the flower would be so well accustomed, and eventually even become a symbol of Bulgaria. The special climatic conditions of the valley contributes to the accumulation of a record amount of flavour in the petals. This not only gives you the opportunity to admire the Valley of Roses for a whole month, but also makes the plantation a source of raw material for the production of the world best essential oils.

Wild Calla Lilies Valley, California

Few people can remain indifferent to the combination of foaming waves of the Pacific Ocean and large white flowers of Calla lilies brightening up the valley from the coast to the forest with unmatched beauty, at the background of no less impressive huge redwoods. For the convenience of travellers there were built a lot of bridges and paths to follow in order not to break the route. The reason is that Calla lilies hide poison ivy, nettles and deep ravines. Thus, nature itself protects the flowers from intruders, leaving us humans the opportunity to contemplate and enjoy a floral Wonderland from a distance.

Peak of flowering is in March, if you go on a tour to the Big Sur area you are in for a real treat.12458_Jean_Li.jpgPhoto igpoty.com
