April - June 2014
Atchafalaya - a branch of the largest river in the United States, the Mississippi creates unusual backwaters in its delta. They have become a habitat for a large group of wild animals, ranging from black bears to lynxes, American eagles to alligators and crayfish. The region became a new homeland for French refugees from the Canadian Akkadian and French royalists, who found refuge here against the gallows of the French Revolution. This region is famous for its cultural identity, which has become the showcase of cajun cuisine shaped by various nations, reflecting the turbulent history of the region.
Atchafalaya - the largest wetland in the United States captivates with the uniqueness of its landscape. The scenery of the cyprys forest emerging from the backwaters of Atchafalaya, the forest entwined with Spanish moss fluttering sashes, the forest whose waters lazily patrol the numerous alligators, creates an unforgettable atmosphere that is a unique mixture of horror and beauty.
