We look at the Gacka River through the lens of Marin Knezović’s section on history, Darko Mihelj’s look at the endemic flora and fauna, Nika Jakab’s section featuring the animals characteristic of the region, and Sanja Vulić’s Cues in Communication section.
The June issue of Matica magazine focuses on the Gacka River, the world’s third longest karst sinking river. The cover art features a lesser-known statue on Zagreb’s Otokara Keršovanija square.
