Four Croatian Locations Nominated for Prestigious Certificate

Four Croatian locations have been nominated for the prestigious Europark tourism certificate. Croatian national park Kornati, and nature parks Lake Vrana (Vransko jezero located in Dalmatia), Lonja field (Lonjsko polje in central Croatia) and Medvednica (Just north of Zagreb), have all been nominated to receive the sustainable tourism certificates, which are issued as part of a project between the Europark Federation and the World Wildlife Fund.

The four Croatian parks are among 16 parks in the region which have been shortlisted by the organisers. World Wildlife Fund expects that by 2015 7 parks from the region will be awarded the certificates. The certificate means that tourists can be guaranteed  ‘added value’ when visiting the parks, such as bird watching or wildlife, or special cultural value. Some certified parks, for example in Provence, during the summer months had visits from up to six million tourists. Croatia has 8 national parks (Brijuni, Kornati, Krka, Mljet, Paklenica, Plitvitce lakes, Risnjak, Northern Velebit) and 11 nature parks (Biokovo, Kopački rit, Lonjsko polje, Medvednica, Papuk, Telašćica, Velebit, Vransko jezero, Učka, Žumberak – Samoborsko gorje, Lastovsko otočje).
