Landek National Natural Monument 1

Basic information

Landek National Natural Monument lies in the northern part of Ostrava city above the alluvial plain and the confluence of the Odra and Ostravice rivers within the altitude of 208 to 280 meters in the Koblov and Petřkovice city boroughs. This area has been protected since 1966. It covers 85,7 hectares and its size was extended in 1989. Landek was proclaimed a national natural monument in 1993. The subject of protection includes not only valuable forest vegetation but also bassets of coal seams and numerous archeological si­tes.

Living nature – flora

In the National Natural Monument Landek, oaks, hornbeams and beech trees have the gratest prevalence in the local forest vegetation, at some places even reminding a virgin forest. Some of the local beech trees (Fagus sylvatica) are more than 140 years old. On the southern sunny Landek slopes, beeches are replaced by scrubby oaks (Quercus petraea). Suitable time to visit this natural monument is in spring, when we can find the Fig Buttercup (Ficaria verna) in bloom, Anemone nemorosa, Adoxa moschatellina, the Ramsons (Allium ursinum), the Gagea (Gagea lutea), Corydalis cava and Corydalis solida. The only hlighly protected species in this area is the free presence of the rare Martagon Lily (Lilium martagon). Massive spread of certain invasive plants causes many problems in this locality, mostly the Giant Knotweed (Reynoutria Spp.), the Himalayan Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) and Robinia pseudoacacia, which may have a significant impact on the original composition of plant communities.
