Lonjsko Polje Nature Park will soon have its own ornithological center

first_imgIn addition to the new building, the ornithological center will include the Oberhofer Hangi mansion and the accompanying outbuilding, which will be thoroughly renovated and adapted to the new functions, according to the conservator’s guidelines. The center will combine tourism and ornithology in a unique way. That is why facilities are being created that will serve visitors and experts who deal with the study of birds. As presented at the press conference in the city of Sisak, through the exhibition-interpretation center and educational park and from the observatory, tourists will be able to get to know the natural wealth of the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park. The promenade along the blind arm of the Sava will introduce visitors to untouched nature, but also provide additional facilities such as presenting old crafts and local products. A wooden platform with a pavilion for rest and fishing and a dock for electric boats will lean on the promenade. The square with the amphitheater will be used for gathering large groups and outdoor lectures. In the research center, ornithologists will have a laboratory and everything else needed for their work. The biggest challenge for the architects was how to harmonize the infrastructure facilities with nature protection. “We didn’t want to disturb nature, so we coordinated the whole project with the landscape. The result is something closer to landscape architecture than home. The interpretation center itself will be made of natural materials, preferably recycled so that the center as a whole communicates the importance of nature conservation.”, Said Tonči Čerina, the author of the conceptual design for the Čigoč Ornithological Center. Čigoč is the most visited place in the Lonjsko polje Nature Park. Sixty percent of Park visitors visit it. “The existing infrastructure for local tourism is not enough. We know that tourism should not happen anywhere, especially in protected areas. It needs to be targeted! The new infrastructure will contribute to the development of better, better and sustainable tourism in Lonjsko polje”, Said Ivor Stanivuković, director of the Public Institution Nature Park Lonjsko polje. Landscaping of the land on which the Ornithological Center Čigoč will be built, as part of the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, has begun. Source: City of Sisak / Visualization Roth & Cerina In order for the accommodation capacities to follow the development of tourism in Lonjsko polje, the construction of a camp is planned. Next to one large pavilion with a kitchen and dining room, there will be wooden bungalows where four people can sleep. The construction of the Čigoč Ornithological Center is part of the project of revitalization of Sisak’s Donja Posavina. Namely, in addition to enriching the tourist offer, the local rural development is supported. Lonjsko polje is home to 250 species of birds, 170 of which nest there. Čigoč is known all over the world for its white stork nests, but ornithologists like to see two more species – black storks and spoonbills, which are a trademark of the Lonjsko polje Nature Park. “The Čigoč Ornithological Center is an extremely valuable project for Sisak and the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park because it provides accommodation facilities for educational and research groups, but also facilities for the occasional traveler who comes here because he wants to enjoy the natural beauty. Last year we bought four hundred and forty-four thousand square feet for the construction of the Ornithological Center. Next year we will start building a parking lot and a promenade”, Said Kristina Ikić Baniček, Mayor of the City of Sisak, at the presentation of the conceptual design for the Ornithological Center Čigoč. She expressed hope that the competent ministry would be involved in financing the construction of the Center and that the project would be able to apply for a tender for European Union funds. The entire project is worth more than forty million kuna.last_img read more
