Čigoč - a maternity underneath the open skies

Proclaimed in 1994 as the first European stork village by EuroNatur (European Nature Heritage Fund), the Croatian village of Čigoč is enclosed in the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park. Čigoč is a synthesis of the countryside in the alluvial plain of the river Sava... a village united to its land, which the inhabitants try to preserve. As a result, it gives ornithologists and lovers of fauna and flora a privileged observation spot for the stork, which faithfully goes there every year to reproduce. So much so that in spring, there are more storks than inhabitants.
