Since then, the network of protected areas has expanded, and now in Russia there are 110 Reserves and 56 National Parks, 60 Refuges (Sanctuaries), 17 Nature Monuments, as well as about 12 thousand protected areas of other categories.

There are three protected natural areas of federal significance in Pskov Region: Sebezhsky National Park, Polistovsky Reserve, and Remdovsky Refuge.
