The Nature Park is not a National Park

DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NATURE PARK AND A NATIONAL PARK?

Nature Parks are areas which "mostly fill the preliminarities of landscape protection areas, consisting of a special diversity, uniqueness and beauty, and which are especially suitable for recreation purposes because of their landscape features". In Nature Parks the needs for nature protection and landscape management should be in harmony with the needs of recreation. They help to ensure the continued and further development of characteristic cultural landscapes. To achieve this, it is also necessary to conserve and support environmentally friendly extensive land- and forest-management.
