BG 6: Limitation of access to forest roads and improvement of parking lots


The activity aimed at minimizing tourism-related traffic in the Biosphere Reserve and its vicinity. Tourism infrastructure and facilities were underdeveloped at many places in the Biosphere Reserve, causing visitors to use primarily their own cars to get to the entrance points to hiking trails.

To limit the access to forest roads for private cars and to enhance the tourism infrastructure, barriers, parking lots and resting places were constructed. Additionally, information boards were installed to communicate the new regulations to the visitors and to raise awareness on the impact of tourism activities and biodiversity conservation issues.
