How do you need to behave in the park to preserve nature?

  1. What places can travelers visit?
    We have mapped special routes in the territory of our park and arranged resting places for travelers to enjoy nature comfortably and safely. Please follow these routes and you will avoid unnecessary risks and dangerous situations.
  2. What are the places where it is allowed to light a bonfire?
    We have arranged special places for lighting a bonfire in the areas that are intended for rest. Lighting fire in other places is prohibited by law and can cause irreparable damage to forests. Putting out forest fires is extremely difficult, not to mention the fact that they kill local fauna.
  3. What to do with garbage?
    We believe that you are not the one who can leave garbage just in the middle of the forest. If you travel along our trails, we ask you to collect garbage in a bag and throw it in a special can upon return. Garbage cans are usually placed at the beginning of the routes. We will be especially grateful if you pick up the garbage left behind by less conscious travelers.
  4. What are the rules of conduct in case of meeting animals?
    The vast majority of wild animals avoid meeting with humans. Therefore, while walking through the forest, it is a good idea to manifest your presence from time to time by talking loudly, echoing, as if warning the animals and giving them the opportunity to leave. However, if you still face a wild animal, you need to back away from it without panic and sudden movements.
  5. What actions do we dislike the most and what fines are in for offenders?
    People who deliberately come to us to cut down, destroy something or shoot animals are under our special control. It is prohibited to cut down trees here, except in areas where this is done in an organized manner. It is prohibited to hunt and enter our territory with firearms. The same concerns fishing in rivers. Do you want some fish? Order it for yourself in one of our restaurants. And please do not pick flowers and medicinal plants in our park. Let them please the human eye in nature and not wither in plastic cups.
