White Carpathians - Protected Areas


This small-scale protected area has been designated to help conserve a fragment of flower meadows on the slopes of Studeny vrch

the Gladiolus Gladiolus imbricatus

The gap in proper management of the site in the 1990s, has led to decrease in biodiversity. Even when the site was mown, the biomass (hay) was often left at the site, which increased the amount of nutrients in the soil. As a result, some more sensitive species disappeared. The site was later improved thanks to state nature conservation efforts.
