Welcome to CHKO Jeseníky

Česká Ves

We have developed a new information system providing information on wildlife of the Jeseníky Mountains. You can download it directly to your mobile phone at interesting places.

The Jeseníky Protected Landscape Area of Jeseníky (“PLA Jeseníky”) covering an area of 744 km2 was designated in 1969. It protects natural treasures and preserved countryside of the Jeseníky Mountains. The Alpine deforested area, mountain spruce forests, preserved beech wood, raised peat bogs and meadows at the foothills are the natural treasures of the Jeseníky Mountains. There are habitats of a number of rare plant and animal species in these biotopes.

What is interesting about the Church of St. Joseph are the two towers. It was built with donations by Catholics and consecrated in 1928. It is called the gem in the Bělá valley. The building of Šoltézství, house No. 84 is the oldest building in the village that was mentioned already before 1550. It used to be the seat of the village council until 1919. There is the Chebzí natural monument not far from here. It is a drier meadow not far from the municipality of Chebzí where lots of species of orchids grow. It is the largest habitat of elder-flowered orchid in the Jeseníky PLA.

Nature protection

The areas of the PLA Jeseníky that are scientifically rarest and of the highest interest for tourists are conserved in the national nature reserves (NNR) of Praděd, Rejvíz, Šerák-Keprník and Skřítek Bog and in 24 other nature reserves and natural monuments.
