One of Croatia’s unique beauties is an impressive nature park in the east of the country.

Kopački Rit is a nature park comprising many backwaters and ponds along the Danube. It is one of the most important, largest and most attractive preserved intact wetlands in Europe.

A part of Kopački Rit has been designated as a zoological reserve. Around 260 various bird species nest here. The Nature Park is also home to 40-odd fish species and over 140 recorded species of plant, including some of which are very rare and only found in a few places in Croatia.

Kopački Rit is also home to a massive deer roar. No hunting is allowed.

Croatian scientist, photographer, and filmmaker Goran Šafarek, who has been protecting and promoting Croatian rivers for over 10 years, has produced an impressive video of the deer roar at the Park.
