To increase the attractiveness and educational capacity of Lonjsko Polje Nature Park by building a visitor center, “Crna Roda Osekovo,” Lonjsko polje Nature Park has enriched its tourist offer with three new observatories that further attract visitors to the park. 


The “Roda” observatory is located not far from the Visitor Center Čigoč, the “Ptica kosac” observatory is near the visitor center Repušnica, while the “Traditional fishing” observatory is located right by the river Lonja not far from the Visitor Center Osekovo, which is expected to open in September.


“By building observatories, we have additionally enriched the content we offer to visitors. Visitors are delighted with their appearance and the scenes they can see from the observatories because the observatories are located in attractive locations near the Lonja River or the plains where indigenous animals live. Visitors can visit these localities, and they will find out how to get to them at our info centers,” said the director of the Public Institution Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, Marija Kušmiš.


The construction is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund through the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion and the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, and the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency. The Roth i Čerina d.o.o. design team is responsible for their look.

Recall, just a few weeks ago, the third-largest protected park in Croatia also introduced bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a means of payment.

Thus, visitors can purchase tickets with cryptocurrencies via Eletrocoin PayCek for a solar-powered boat ride on the Strug river, known as the “Slavonian Amazon,” a tour of the “Posavina safari” – a traditional pasture, a tour of the ornithological reserve Krapje đol and observe the fields from the new observatories “Bird reaper,” “White Stork” or “Vrška.” Visitors can also use the currency for all services and souvenirs.

“We are glad to be the first nature park to introduce this service. We certainly encourage investors in cryptocurrencies to think about the importance of the protected area, its sustainability, but also to enjoy the natural beauty,” said Marija Kušmiš, director of the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park. 

Electrocoin d.o.o. points out that the interest of business entities in introducing payments for their products and services in cryptocurrencies is constantly growing. Furthermore, they are extremely pleased that this trend is not exclusively related to companies in the technology and finance segment. An excellent example of this is the excellent cooperation with Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, which recognized the potential of implementing the PayCek cryptocurrency payment system in its business and thus showed that it not only keeps pace with future technological trends but also recognizes the need for a new generation of consumers.

Lonjsko Polje is the first park in Croatia, and beyond that has allowed its visitors to visit the Park and enjoy other content from the offer by paying in cryptocurrencies.
