Established in 1988, the Park’s area is 745 km², 85 % of which are forests and wooded complexes. The whole surface is under Natura 2000 both birds and habitats as 200 species of birds are nesting there. In contrast to national parks or nature reserves, agriculture, timber production and other land uses within the boundaries of the landscape park have economic significance, but are subject to regulations.

The House of the park is a good start to discover the park’s characteristics before having a walk in the forest.
