Papuk Nature Park sets a new record: more than 25.000 visitors to Jankovac this year
Judging by the number of visitors who decided to visit the Papuk Nature Park this year, then we can say that Papuk has become perhaps the most desirable continental destination. With just over 7000 visitors, 2017 was the best year so far, but in just the first 8 months of 2018, the Papuk Nature Park, or Jankovac Park-Forest, was visited by more than 25 visitors.Yesterday, in the morning, this pearl of Slavonia was visited for the first time by Mrs. Nisveta Vignjević from Rijeka, accompanied by her husband, and thus became the 25.000th visitor this year. “The Count fled from Vienna, and we from Rijeka – civilization always retreats because the heart recognizes peace, beauty, simplicity, harmony of nature. Thanks for making it possible for us. “Said Nisveta Vignjević, who did not hide her delight at what she saw.”I am especially pleased with the growth of domestic and foreign nature lovers. We are extremely pleased with this figure, which is an indication that protected areas can significantly contribute to the development of tourism and the local communities in which they are located. We believe that this growth trend will continue. The park has made multimillion-dollar investments in the past period, especially in the Jankovac Forest Park. This positive trend will continue in the next two years, where tens of millions of kunas will be raised invest in the wider area in the development of tourist infrastructure, which seeks to provide an offer that balances the interest of visitors and nature protection, which we must preserve for all future generations. ” pointed out the director of the Papuk Nature Park Alen JurenacThis is a confirmation that even continental destinations that are not in the center of media attention can have a very good attendance if the contents are interesting to visitors. We can conclude how the number of visitors to the Park is growing from year to year, and the reconstruction of the road from Slatinski Drenovac will further facilitate access to Jankovac and that an even larger number of people will decide to enjoy the beauties of the Park, conclude PP Papuk.
