Site description
An extensive area covering the upper parts of the Krusné hory mountains, in the recent past so badly damaged by air pollution, causing the dying away of spruce forests. Nowadays, patches of peat bogs mix with bare areas planted with substitute woods and former fields, meadows and frost holes that cannot be planted. A dam, Flajska prehrada, created as a source of drinking water is also part of the IBA. There are large uninhabited areas and human settlements are dispersed irregularly. The environment hosts distinct bird communities.
