August 8, 2020 – The second-largest nature park in Croatia, Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, continues to develop its tourist offer guided by the slogan “Discover the Undiscovered”.
HRTurizam reports that as of this weekend, two solar-powered boats will sail along the Strug River from the port in the village of Plesmo. These are almost silent vessels that will enable tourists to discover the beauty of the hitherto self-contained tributary of the Sava River.
“Discover the undiscovered – is the slogan with which we encourage guests to come to Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, but also which directs us in the development of visitor infrastructure and content. Namely, we who work in Lonjsko Polje, as well as those who live here, know how important perspective is for experiencing the beauty of the local nature. That is why we want to provide visitors with a unique view of Lonjsko Polje – both the one from the lookout point and the one from the river,” said Ivor Stanivukovic, director of the Public Institution Lonjsko Polje Nature Park.
In addition to solar-powered boats, canoes await visitors at the Plesmo pier. Important information for travel agencies is that boats will be able to be used on weekends and holidays with prior reservation, and during the week by appointment. Also, from the Krapje Visitor Center to the pier in Plesmo, visitors will be driven by an oldtimer tractor with a trailer.
“Solar-powered boat rides on the Struga allow tourists to sail silently into beautiful nature. They will pass by beaver habitats, see cattle grazing, experience the flight of birds for which Lonjsko polje is known among ornithologists around the world,” concluded Stanivukovic.
Lonjsko polje Nature Park is the second-largest nature park in Croatia. In order for visitors to leave it with as many fond memories as possible, great attention is paid to the development of the visitor infrastructure and content.
