One of Croatia’s most stunning National Parks have today launched a new environmentally friendly project.

Krka National Park, which this had over one million people visitors, have unveiled on Friday three new solar trees. The solar trees, which are located in three different areas of the National Park, will allow visitors, with the help of solar energy, to access free Wi-Fi and recharge their mobile phones.

The SunInside solar trees, which also are used as bike racks and benches to sit and rest at, are located at the southern entrance in Skradin, near the Skradinski buk waterfall and at the Lozovac entrance.

The solar trees are made by local Šibenik company Upgrade energy.

“Our visitors are like all modern tourists who use mobile devices for taking pictures, getting information and sharing content. Often what happens is that they run out of cell phone battery which is a barrier for the full ‘capture’ experience of the park. Installing solar trees provides an additional service to visitors of the park as well as educating them about the possibilities of practical and efficient use of energy from renewable sources. We are pleased that the product is designed and manufactured in the local Šibenik area, thus contributing to the development of domestic innovative technology “, said Krka National Park Director Krešimir Šakić.
