Yugyd Va (Komi Ural) National Park, natural taiga forest and swamps, Komi Republic, Russia

The Yugyd Va National Park covers 18,917 square kilometers in the Northern Ural Mountains and adjacent foothills and flatlands. The entire park is within the Pechora River basin, i.e. west of the Europe-Asia continental divide. Administratively, the park is located in the south-eastern part of the Komi Republic, on the territory of the Vuktylsky, Intinsky and Pechorsky districts of the republic. The park headquarters is in the town of Vuktyl; branch offices operate in Pechora and Inta. In the south, the national park is adjacent to a much older Pechora-Ilych Nature Reserve. The park was created by the Russian Government on April 23, 1994, with the goals of protection and recreational use of the taiga forests of the Northern Urals. In 1995, the forest area including the Yugud Va National Park and the nearby Pechora-Ilych Nature Reserve were recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
