Find the Drav treasure

The Drava Treasure area is an enchanting corner of northern Croatia where the landscapes, history, culture and cheerful spirit of three municipalities and one small town create a picturesque mosaic of plains, meadows, groves, meanders and streams that intertwine in the richness of natural beauty. Throughout the area extends a part of the Mura-Drava-Danube Transboundary Biosphere Reserve, declared by UNESCO in 2012. The reserve is also called "Amazon of Europe". The Amazon of Europe consists of a 700 km long green belt in which numerous protected species of animals and birds have found a home. In the vicinity of Donja Dubrava, you will find the area of the ornithological reserve Veliki Pažut, an almost untouched area in whose wilderness a human foot rarely sets foot today. An educational forest trail "Vrata Pažuta" or "Pažut Gates" in Donja Dubrava, 1,750 meters long, is dedicated to the original, intact nature, and it is intended for pedestrians and cyclists. Here, each village has its own story, each intersection is adorned with a "pil" or a religious crossroad monument, a gift that keeps travelers safe and directs them to the right path. Each season brings its own magic – flower meadows in spring, summer joys on the lake and the old course of the Drava River, golden fields of wheat, corn and sunflowers, brightly colored autumn and a peaceful winter idyll. The Drava Treasure is a natural paradise, where every adventure turns into a unique experience in harmony with nature.


Nature can have a tremendous impact on the human state of mind, creating a sense of harmony and balance. Interestingly, research shows that spending time in nature can reduce stress levels, stimulate concentration, and promote a sense of happiness and peace. This is related to the concept of "biophilia," a theory that argues that humans instinctively strive for a connection with nature for evolutionary reasons. A walk in the woods or a stay by the water can stimulate the secretion of endorphins, hormones that contribute to a feeling of happiness and relaxation.

A guide to finding harmony in nature:

  • Step 1

    When in nature, focus on the moment. Observe the environment, listen to the sounds of nature, feel the smells around you. Being present in the moment increases the feeling of harmony and peace.

  • Step 2

    Try practicing meditation or simply sit in silence and focus on your breathing. It will help you calm your mind and harmonize with the rhythms of nature.

  • Step 3

    Explore nature in a way that fulfills you. Whether it's climbing mountains, cycling through the woods, or simply lying on the grass looking up at the sky, find an activity that connects you to nature.

  • Step 4

    Bring a sketch pad or camera and try to capture the beauty of nature. Creating or observing art in nature can be extremely calming.

  • Step 5

    Be aware of the blessings that nature provides. Be grateful for the beauty around you, for every detail that fills you with happiness.
