White Carpathians - Protected Areas


This small-scale protected area has been designated for the conservation of a species-rich meadow with orchid species on the slope of the Doubrava hill near Brezova.

the Fragrant Orchid (Gymnadenia conopsea)

the Burnt Orchid (Orchis ustulata)

The geological activity (landslips) has significantly contributed to the biodiversity of the site. In the past, the site was used as a pasture. When the grazing stopped, the site began growing over with shrubs and trees. The nature conservation efforts aim at a return to a more favourable status.
