Well, the forest had nothing to do with his favorite cake, it was rather an exciting tourist destination. The forest was named so because the dense conifers did not allow the rays of the sun to enter the forest, in the good old days everything appeared black in there. There is a lot that one can do there, from the famous hiking trails to diving, windsurfing, water sports and more.

Crooked forest

There are speculations to this one, whether the uniqueness of this forest is natural or man intended. The forest gets its name from the hundreds of ‘crooked’ trees in the forest. A group of people believe that a snow storm caused the shape of the trees to curve. Others believe that when the trees were initially planted in 1930, the people employed some technique so that the trees would grow crooked at their base. This way they could get curved wood for building boats or furniture. Regardless, these crooked pine trees are an awesome spectacle.
