Thus, swimming at Skradinski buk will no longer be allowed, which was the most attractive for visitors.

What kind of ecosystem we will leave to future generations is our most important task and in accordance with it, a new Ordinance has been adopted. After many years of reflection and numerous researches, consideration of the needs of both nature and us people who in one way or another use what Krka has given us, measures have been adopted that will contribute to long-term sustainable management and nature protection “, said the director of the Public Institution “Krka National Park” Nella Slavica and added: “The entire Ordinance is strongly focused on the conservation of resources and richness of biodiversity, whether it is the regulation of the number of visitors, waste disposal, hunting and fishing or deforestation. The manner of use of water and public water resources in subzones is clearly defined and obliges users to submit annual work plans harmonized with the activities of the Institution. ” Photo: NP Krka For this reason, the new Ordinance prohibits swimming in the Krka National Park from 1 January 2021. The local population and economic entities have been provided with a period of adjustment, through open dialogue, cooperation and assistance from the Public Institution, point out the NP Krka. On the other hand, hunting and fishing are not allowed activities in the National Park. Namely, due to its geological past, the river Krka is home to endemic fish species, and its banks preserve the habitats of many endangered animals. It is therefore considered a natural monument of the highest category and should be preserved as such for the future.  RELATED NEWS:last_img read more

first_img“We heard he was a huge Liverpool fan when he was a kid” The truth is that the Spanish entrendor was the one that ended up arriving in Anfield. “I think the feeling of the club and some players was that José Mourinho could not be a Liverpool coach because of the way he performed.

In the end Benítez was a more reserved technician, “said Carragher in Sky Sports Football Podcast.He even stated that he does not know whether or not Mourinho wanted to go to Liverpool instead of Chelsea, but he did know that several Liverpool players knew Mourinho’s preferences at the time: “Whether he wanted to or not, at the time, I don’t know, but we hear that He was a huge Liverpool fan when he was a kid. So I don’t know if Roman Abramovic’s millions hadn’t crossed paths, history would have been different. “Carragher was then a fundamental pillar in the Champions League final that Liverpool played with Benítez. And Mourinho started his great story in England… in Chelsea colors. Carragher has told, that in 2004 when Gérard Houllier he stopped being the ‘red’ coach, in the English team they interviewed several technicians: “Rick Parry (executive director) had interviewed Rafa Benítez at some point. And it kept some players informed of the options out there. Then he also mentioned José Mourinho. We knew much more about Rafa Benítez because he had won the Spanish league. “ Carragher Jamie Carragher He has played more than 500 games in Premier League with the Liverpool and it is one of the most authoritative voices when it comes to talking about the set of Merseyside.
