Beskydy Protected Landscape Area

Local nameCHKO Beskydy
LocationRožnov pod Radhoštěm, Czechia

Beskydy Protected Landscape Area is the largest PLA in the Czech Republic. It lies in the south-eastern part of the Moravian Silesian and eastern part of Zlín regions, on the border with Slovakia. All its area belongs to the Outer Western Carpathians and comprises most of the Moravian-Silesian Beskids Range, a large part of the Vsetínské vrchy Range, and the Moravian part of the Javorníky Range. In Slovakia, Kysuce Protected Landscape Area borders the area.

Beskydy PLA was declared on 5 March 1973 to protect the unique natural features of the area, namely well-preserved primeval forests, species rich meadows and pastures and pseudo-karst elements, but also the aesthetic value of the area which is typical for its diversity of habitats developed over the centuries of human settlement: ridge-top meadows and pastures and hamlets scattered throughout the area.
