Wild Garlic Soup with Mozzarella
The Danube-Auen National Park

Medvedí cesnak Národný park Donau-Auen

Spring is an extraordinary season when the whole nature awakens to a new life. The shaky sun sends its first warming beams to earth and the fresh breeze caresses our faces. In gardens, trees are in bud and flowers in bloom. Fresh spring vegetable and odorant herbs appear on the markets to become an important diversification of our menu. Wild garlic – ramsons (Allium ursinum, also known as bear’s garlic) is also among them. It is very popular in Austria where soups and spreads are made of this herb or it is added to salads.

The Danube-Auen National Park, which lies between Vienna and Bratislava, is known for its entire “green carpets” of wild garlic. It is allowed to collect smaller amount of plants for your own consumption. Brown bears are said to feast on this wild vegetable that’s why it is also called bear’s garlic.
