The Risnjak National Park

The Risnjak National Park is located in Gorski Kotar, on a surface of 6, 350 hectares, and partially in Bakar, too.  It was founded in 1953, and it got its name according to a lynx, its most popular inhabitant.  The basis of the park is a massive mountain of  Risnjak with a peak of 1,528 meters, measuring its lowest peak at 290 m, where the River Kupa’s meadow is located. The Risnjak’s peak is attractive in all seasons, and it is known for its beautiful horizons looking towards the Kvarner’s islands and mountains in the neighbouring Slovenia, all the way up to the Alps.  The park is a great example of the elevated decomposition of Dinaride’s mountain chain in embossment sense, geological, hydrological, and climatic aspects, plant vegetation and animal’s world.   The area is divided into two zones, the area of strict and moderate protection-in the narrow area, there are many natural features of rare beauty due to which this area is enlisted in the highest area of the protected nature.  Underneath the peak, there is a mountain home Josip Schlosser Klekovski, up to which a few marked paths lead to.
