A mountainous, forested region, with peaks above 1,400 m. Secondary Picea stands dominate, with fragments of primary Abies/Fagus forest preserved at some sites. Alpine meadows exist above the treeline (1,300 m), along with peatbogs and springs. Alnus growth covers stream banks, and meadows and pastures, many of them abandoned, dominate the farmland. Forestry is the most important human activity.
The IBA is important for species that breed in the Picea forests and alpine meadows, and supports populations of two species with limited distributions in the Czech Republic: Anthus spinoletta and Prunella collaris.
