The Carpathian Biosphere Reserve is one of the most important protected areas in Ukraine. It was designated by a decree of the Ukrainian government in 1968. Since 1993 it belongs to the International Network of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The Carpathian Biosphere Reserve was awarded by European Diploma in 1997, 2002 and 2007. In 2007 beech primeval forests protected by CBR were listed to the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List.

The Carpathian Biosphere Reserve is made up of 8 isolated regional units (massifs) located in different districts of Transcarpathia. These represent all the natural and climatic zones of the Ukrainian Carpathians within the reserve. The highest point is Mt.Hoverla (2061 m.a.s.l.)- Ukraine's highest summit. The reserve covers a total area of 53 630 ha.
