Since 2017 Bulgaria is represented in the serial transnational UNESCO World Heritage Site called “Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe”. They are a heritage of humankind that connects 78 unique beech forest areas in 12 countries at a surface area of about 92,000 hectares.

The Bulgarian component covers 10 989,31 ha and includes the most representative beech forests in the nine reserves located on the territory of the Central Balkan National Park – Boatin, Tsarichina, Kozya Stena, Steneto, Sokolna, Peeshti skali, Stara reka, Dzhendema and Severen Dzhendem. The reserves are the category of protected areas with the highest degree of protection according to the Bulgarian legislation, which guarantees the protection of the valuable beech communities in them. The national park and the reserves in it are among the popular destinations for hiking in Bulgaria and offer good conditions for contact with the preserved wildlife.
