Nature and the environment are precious and we need to safeguard and protect them in a variety of ways. For example, garbage has to be collected and disposed of in a suitable container, we shouldn’t pick or destroy plants, nor disturb animals living in nature. It is especially dangerous and strictly forbidden to start open fires, as well as to drive off-road through nature. It is recommended to use marked hiking trails and forest paths.
Let’s act responsibly and respect nature.
