The round forms often alternate with limestone rocks, which are protected phenomena on both sides of the frontier as the Protected landscape area of Biele Karpaty.

The Slovak part of the mountain range has been included into the Protected landscape area Biele Karpaty  in 1979. It stretches on an area of 43,519 ha. The PLA stretches now in the 80 km long territory of the mountain range Biele Karpaty. Apart from that, a fraction of the territory of the PLA lies in the neighbouring hills Myjavská pahorkatina. It includes the area around Branč.
