Abstract The authors identify environmental and spatial problems, which require further optimisation of the national ecological network (NEN). Their analysis is based on the nature target types allocated to the NEN. Environmental problems relate to water tables and atmospheric nitrogen deposition. Spatial problems concern total areas and spatial configuration. They assess the urgency of the problems, based on the principles of the EU Habitats Directive, and suggest a method to prioritise them. The spatial coherence and environmental conditions are as yet insufficient to meet the international commitments. Large continuous habitat areas offer the best opportunities for sustainable protection. Mosaics of smaller habitat areas may function as one large nature core area as well
