Upscale Living Magazine - - Travel -

In cen­tral Croa­tia, just north and east of Za­greb, fea­tures some of the coun­tries most beau­ti­ful ru­ral scenery. Ly­ing in the val­leys of the rivers Sava, Drava and Mura and home to nu­mer­ous cas­tles and Baroque towns, cen­tral Croa­tia is sprin­kled with ther­mal and min­eral wa­ter springs. Home to Kopački Rit, a na­ture park and wet­land area cover­ing a to­tal of 238 hectares, is one of the largest nat­u­ral wet­lands in Europe and has re­mained pri­mar­ily in­tact, due to its in­ac­ces­si­bil­ity to por­tions of the park, since the olden times. Along with large herds of deer and wild boars, over 300 dif­fer­ent species of birds are found at the park in­cluded rare and pro­tected species like the white-tailed ea­gle and black stork. Tour the park on an ex­cur­sion boat and tra­verse over swampy wa­ters and get lost in the wet­lands, forests and dilu­vial fields.
