PLA Administration Bílé Karpaty
Bílé Karpaty PLA was designated by a Ministry of Culture order (No. 17644/1980) on November 3rd 1980. It has an area of 715 km2 and covers the Hodonín, Uherské Hradiště and Zlín regions. It is administered by the Administration of Bílé Karpaty, which is a regional branch of the Nature Conservation Authority.
Bílé Karpaty PLA is a bilateral area. The Czech part is 70 km long, it is northeast-southwest oriented and the altitude is between 175-970 m. Bílé Karpaty PLA is unique compared to other large-scale conservation areas in the Czech Republic as they are the highest mountains of the south-western edge of the Carpathian mountain range. The whole PLA (especially its southern part) has been cultivated by man for hundreds of years. Despite, or due to this fact, exceptionally important natural treasures have been conserved here. Most of the area can be considered a balanced landscape. For these natural and landscape qualities Bílé Karpaty was designated a UNESCO MAB biosphere reserve.
