Roztochya

Here, on the eastern boundary of their natural distribution area, primeval beech forests with over 200-year-old beech trees grow on the gently undulating uplands with numerous gorges. Numerous rare plant species are found here. A distinctive feature are the pine-beech forests. The abundance of dead wood provides habitat to a pronounced fungi and beetle community.
