Jizera Mountain Beechwood in Czech Republic placed on UNESCO World Heritage List

The national natural reserve of the Jizera Mountain Beechwood covers an area of about 27 square kilometres and is located on the northern slopes of the Jizera Mountains. Its unique nature is evidenced by its inclusion on the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage list. The beechwood has thus become the first natural reserve in the Czech Republic to be included on the list.

“The inclusion among the UNESCO heritage sites is an absolutely unique award for us as well as a great honour. Our beechwood now finds itself among a number of other unique reserves and monuments, such as the Grand Canyon Natural Park in Arizona, the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia, and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. This brings with it many opportunities, but above all else compels us to treat nature in a responsible way and with all the necessary respect,” points out Denisa Merenusová, director of Jizerky Tourist Region.

“Although we believe that the majority of tourists treat nature with the necessary degree of responsibility, we see no harm in reminding everyone about the basic rules of conduct and pointing out that the protection of nature is our number one priority,” Denisa Merenusová adds.
