White Carpathians - Protected Areas


The small-scale protected area has been designated for the conservation of fragments of White Carpathian flower meadows.

Most of the once extensive meadows in this area were ploughed in in the 1970s. Mechnacky is the only remaining part. Due to the changes, the biodiversity of the site was significantly decreased. The nature conservation efforts aim at a return to a more favourable status.
