Berezinsky State Reserve
The reserve is located in the marginal zone of the last Viurms Glacier and is characterized by a young glacier relief
with rare combination of moraine heights, lake-glacier plains and abundant deep hollows. The stages of the present
surface natural evolution are observed in the reserve. The uniqueness of the reserve's territory is also determined
by the fact, that it is situated on the plane watershed between the Black and the Baltic Seas and occupies a vast
limno- and fluvioglacial plain.

nature conservation, high diversity and significance as a research site due to its location on the transition zone
