Maybe no other European country has such diverse, yet so preserved rivers as Croatia. Rivers of Croatia are true treasure of this country.
The new film about the natural history of Croatian rivers was aired recently made by Goran Šafarek.
The Kupa / Kolpa River is a medium-sized river in Slovenia and Croatia, flowing in beautiful mountains in upper stretches and meandering in the plains.
Floodplains are an integral part of the riverine systems. It is hydrologically connected to the main river channel but was historically neglected. Much of the world floodplains have been reduced or disconnected.
One of the most beautiful shapes of the rivers, the braided streams are wider riverbeds where the water is flowing in several channels through the sediment. It is typical for middle stretches of the rivers.
Rivers and streams deposit sediment along the entire course, in the form of the bars, floodplain deposits, deltas, and rarely alluvial fans. Sediment deposition is important for creating and resetting new habitats.
