It covers an area of 370 km2 (570 km2 with a protective zone). It divides into three zones according to the level of preservation - I and II are the most strictly protected zones.
In the area of the park visitors can find many information and tourist centres as well as several thematic exhibitions.

This covers mainly regeneration of natural forests, preservation of endangered plant and animal species as well as a range of watch, research, information and cultural activities.
