It is likely that entry fees for national parks and protected areas will be introduced soon, the Pravda daily reported on June 9.
The amount is not set yet, but the Environment Ministry is considering introducing the fees gradually.
"We are dealing with introducing fees for protected areas; it's a way to raise money for their maintenance and better protection,” said Jaroslav Jaduš, the ministry’s state secretary. “It's still too early to talk about dates or specific areas.”
The first entry fee is to be introduced for the Tatras National Park (TANAP) after the park's protected areas have been rezoned.
