Additional Information Kopački rit Nature Park, also called the European Amazon, is situated in the central part of the Danube floodplain, between two important European rivers, the Drava and the Danube.
It became a protected area in 1967 due to its values as a rare ecosystem, its rich biodiversity and important ecological values. The whole surface of the Park lies on 23.891 ha of which 7.143 ha are under higher protection being a Special Zoological Reserve.
There are 40-odd fish species (pike, ide, tench, bream, carp, catfish, pike-perch, perch, etc.).
Since I live close to this nature park, that was inspiration for this biotope.
