Nature park Vransko jezero

Vransko jezero is the largest natural lake in Croatia. It is, in fact, a flooded karst field, a crypto-depression of exceptional ecological and scientific value. The lake and its surroundings are home to many species and a number of endemic herbs and animals. It is also an ornithological reservation and a habitat for over 235 bird species, wading birds in particular. During migration, the park is known to accommodate between 20,000 and 200,000 birds. The lake is also very rich in fish, which contributed to the development of fishing tourism and birdwatching. The NW part of the lake was declared a special ornithological reservation in 1983 and listed as an important ornithological area of Europe
