National Parks of Russian:
There are currently 41 national parks in the Russian Federation, a list of which is given below. Together they cover approximately 71,700 square kilometres.
The oldest parks in the Russian Federation are Sochinsky and Losiny Ostrov (1983); Samarskaya Luka (1984); Marii Chodra (1985); Bashkiria, Prielbrusye, Pribaykalsky and Zabaykalsky (1986).
According to the law on the protected areas of Russia, national parks are areas of land and water devoted to nature protection, ecological education, and scientific research. They contain sites of particular ecological, historical and aesthetic value. Regulated tourism is permitted.
The area of each park is divided into zones according to various functions. There should be a strictly protected area managed as a zapovednik, and also recreational and buffer zones in which economic activity is allowed, such as tourism, traditional land use, and benign forms of agriculture and forestry. The strictly protected function is sometimes fulfilled by a neighbouring official zapovednik; for instance, Barguzin Zapovednik adjoins Zabaykalsky National Park on the east side of Lake Baikal.
In 2001 Vodlozero National Park received UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status, followed by Smolenskoye Poozerye and Ugra National Park in 2002, and two others more recently.
The national parks are currently the responsibility of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia.
