wonderful natural heritage Croatia

Croatia is not a large country, but it is a Mediterranean and central European country at the same time, a mountain and a flat country, with coast and inland area. Croatia has a variety of natural beauty, which otherwise only in larger European countries is strikingly characteristic.. Therefore counts Croatia, despite its relatively small territory, for the leading group of five leading countries in Europe, because of its biological diversity. And some of the smallest areas of Croatia are considerd the richest habitats in the world.

Croatia has a rich structured, despite the contrary appearances, wooded coast with a large number of islands in the South Seas. Many well-preserved cities with a Mediterranean flair, narrow alleys and stone buildings, as in Italy, line the coast. But in this coastal area are encountered at large, surrounded by stone walls, green pasture land, which are similar to those in Ireland. The mountainous areas of Croatia decorate large forest areas as in the Scandinavian north of Europe, romantic lakes, raging rivers and picturesque mountain villages like in the Alps, but also barren karst landscape with ravines and canyons, as in -Wilden Westen- America. In the seemingly endless plains of Hungary, Croatia, there are still vast marsh areas, which are otherwise only in the far east of Europe, in Russia or Ukraine present, while the surrounding hills of vineyards and medieval castles and fortresses through, as they are in Germany or Austria knows.

In addition to national parks, nature reserves and strictly protected nature reserves Croatia protects further 450 different sites and objects, of which a total of 79 special reserves (botanical, geomorphological, hydro-logical, zoological, marine and forest reserves), 38 Park Forest, 70 landscapes and 108 natural monuments. Particularly protected are even 135 Park architectural monuments, botanical gardens, parks, individual trees and tree groups. Also protected are a total of  777 species, 44 higher plant species and 159 species of fungi. In addition, other European protected species are protected, based on the territory of Croatia stopped.

Croatian has declared 8 National Parks:

A national park is a reserve of land, usually, but not always declared and owned by a national government, protected from most human development and pollution. National parks are a protected area of IUCN category II.

The World Conservation Union defines a national park as a natural area designated to protect the ecological integrity of one or more ecosystems for present and future generations. Parks are designated as such by governments. Typically, a national park has a higher level of protection than other classes of natural reserves.

Many consider it a responsibility of governments to preserve these areas of profound scenic beauty and biodiversity and make them available to all citizens as public parks. The experience of great outdoor spaces engenders learning and happiness. A national park is an embodiment of national identity and shared purpose.

Croatia National parks

The three naturally separate parts of Croatia, the lowlands, the mountains and the coastal country differ in terms of their very basic features. The largest part, the fertile and heavily populated Croatian lowlands, is the southwestern edge of the great Pannonian level position. Its main natural features are the ancient oak forests in the Schwemmgebieten, numerous rivers in their well-preserved ancestral river beds, as well as a rich and diverse flora and fauna. But this Pannonian space is not always as flat as it seems, and so are always on the horizon again weinreiche hills and wooded mountains Pannonian, like islands from the Pannonian Sea grain stand out.

Unlike the Croatian lowlands is the mountainous Croatia relatively small and very sparsely populated. So, its nature and original conditions for the most part, are maintained and preserveed. In his dense fir, spruce and beech forests is still full with the bear, lynx, wolf, and he, while in its clear rivers, the otter and trout romp. Very wide spread are large and numerous karst features. Relief of karst formations on the earth's surface, sat down at the earth with a multitude of caves and gorges away, as they hardly anywhere else in Europe can encounter.

And, as a coronation, finally, the main attraction of Croatia: its coast, which has the most visitors. The Croatian coast, together with Greek islands is the most structured in the Mediterranean. Its length is 1,778 kilometers and together with the banks of the 1,185 islands, islets and reefs comes to 5,835 kilometers. On this coast, there are countless many different bays, capes, beaches and other hidden details to discover. Their diverse figure ranges from wild cliffs and rocky slopes, to cuts Mediterranean with dense vegetation. There, each visitor finds a lonely spot. Especially those with a boat or yacht will always find an intimate corner.
