Abstrakt/Abstract: Approximately one thousand types of medicinal plants grow in Europe - about 800 are used in folk medicine, more than 300 in European official medicine and 150 in Slovakian official medicine. Medicinal plants and their bioactive substances are of natural origin, therefore they are considered be the most natural medicines, as evidenced by multiple historical records and observations. In the past, plants were the only available option for successful treatment of almost all kinds of diseases. The emergence of modern medicine, combined with the invention and mass preparation of synthetic drugs, has made the use of medicinal plants recede. The presented publication provides an overview of 56 species of wild edible plants. Most of the plants described in this publication are among the weeds we "struggle" with them, destroy them, but very often these species are very rich for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and many other biologically active substances whose usability from these plants is much higher than their usability from tablets and nutritional supplements. Plants are described not only in botanical characteristic, but also for their occurrence, chemical composition and processing (drying, storage). The use of these interesting species for the treatment of various types of diseases is also described, as well as their use in cosmetics and gastronomy, which is currently a subject of great interest - the enlargement of the meal list and especially its enrichment of health benefits. At the end of the publication, six species of plants which grow around us are also briefly described - we mostly see them as ornamental species, but we can also use them very effectively to improve our lives.
