Medová baba (Poloniny)

Nature Interest

V Bukovských vrchoch, na území národného parku Poloniny, na trase z Novej Sedlice na vrchol Riabej skaly, sa nachádza miesto označované ako Lúka medovej baby alebo Medová baba.

Ide o veľkú lúku s monumentálnou sochou ženy – Medovej baby. Socha má výšku 7 metrov a znázorňuje Žofiu Maťašovskú – jednoduchú, skromnú ženu, včelárku. Do Novej Sedlice sa presťahovala v roku 1928 a svoj život zasvätila včelárstvu. Preslávila sa kvalitným horským medom. Jej produkty odberali aj pernikárne v Pardubiciach či čokoládovne v nemeckom Kolíne. S láskou sa starala až o osemdesiatku úľov v tomto krásnom kúte Slovenska.

Sochu medovej baby vytvoril sochár Marek Žitňan a bola osadená v roku 2002. Na lúke sa nachádza aj zrubový včelín, takže drevená Žofia stále dohliada na kvitnúce lúky a pracovité včely. Aj dnes si tu môžete vychutnať krásnu prírodu, výhľady, pokoj a samozrejme lúky plné kvetov a bylín.
