National parks (NP)

National park (NP) – a larger area, usually more than 1,000 ha, predominantly with ecosystems substantially unaffected by human activities, or with unique and natural landscape structures that form national biocentres and the most significant natural heritage in which the nature protection is of higher priority than other activities. In the territory of a NP the 3rd level of protection is valid unless determined otherwise.
