PP Kopački rit

Kopački rit is a nature park, placed in the corner formed by the river Danube and its tributary Drava. Depending on the water level, the water of these two rivers constantly shapes and changes the look of Kopački Rit, creating a beautiful mosaic of lakes, canals, ponds and beams, floodplain forests, reed beds and wet meadows. It is one of the best preserved floodplains in Europe, including the Special Zoological Reserve as the most valuable part of the Park. Kopački rit is characterized by exceptional landscape beauty and great biodiversity. The whole area is widely known as a habitat for numerous waterfowl birds, a common deer population, and especially white-tailed eagle, a symbol of the Park.
