Other Site Characteristics

The site inludes the biggest part of Yantra Stream between Gabrovo and Danube.The river is surrounded by arable lands, small meadows, riverine willow and poplar forests, dry slopes on the right banks, old river beds. Between Gabrovo and Veliko Tutnovo the river passes mainly into stony canyons.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site Yantra is a very important one for the preservation of typical riverine ecosystems - river stream with macrophytic communities, alluvial forests, old river beds (eutrophic lakes), steppe communities (including the unique locality of Salvia scabiosifolia), salt meadows etc.
