KOPAČKI RIT PHOTO
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.
