Solar Trees Arrive at Krka National Park

The beautiful Krka National Park has launched a quirky environmentally friendly idea.

Krka National Park, the idyllic natural haven located on the Krka River welcomed over one million visitors in 2016 alone. Today the park unveiled three new solar trees, an innovative idea to allow for maximum use of technology from the use of sustainable resources.

The trees are located in three different parts of the park and will allow visitors to do everyday modern things like access free WiFi and charge mobile devices using only solar energy, a move which is likely to prove a hit as the park receives its highest number of visitors when the sun is strong all day and summer temperatures begin to soar.

Krka National Park Director Kresimir Sakic said that visitors to the park are like all modern tourists who use mobile devices for taking pictures, getting information and sharing content and that when people run out of phone battery it becomes a barrier for the full ‘capture’ experience of the park.

The solar trees are made by a local Sibenik based company called Upgrade Energy and can be found at the southern entrance in Skradin, near the Skradinski buk waterfall and at the Lozovac entrance.
