Site description
A large area of varied topography situated c.30 km west of Prague. Its axis is the Berounka river, with its deeply carved valleys and canyons. Coniferous tree species dominate the forests, along with Fagus and Quercus. Valuable non-forest habitats include dry grasslands, ecotonal shrub and herb communities, and communities of exposed rocks and screes. In the Biosphere Reserve core zone, human activities are limited to the monitoring of ecosystem change.

Key biodiversity
The IBA is particularly important for species of broadleaved forest, especially raptors. More than 120 breeding species have been recorded over the last decade.
