Upoznajte Gorski kotar – pet atraktivnih lokacija koje morate doživjeti!
|Raft "Čača" in Lokvarsko jezero|
|National park Risnjak|
National park Risnjak is a striking example of altitudinal dissolution of the Dinaric mountain system in relief, geological, hydrological and climatic aspect, vegetation and wildlife. Basis of the park is Risnjak massif with a peak at 1528 meters. In 1997 the area of the park was extended to the area of the source of the river Kupa. Source of Kupa, one of the many still unsolved karst mysteries, it is one of the strongest, widest and deepest Croatian sources. At 313 m above the sea level, water mass formed a small lake turquoise green-blue color, with length of 200 meters and a width of about 30 meters. Accessing this site is possible following an attractive path from the village Razloge or Kupari from where the path is a little bit longer, and rises upstream, following the flow of the river Kupa. National park Risnjak is one of the less visited national parks in the country, not because it is less valuable, but because to enjoy its beauty one should have a special feeling for the charms of natural phenomena.

recognized by IOF leaders (International Orienteering Federation) who have
appointed competition the WRE (World ranking Event) status several times so
Unfortunately, Croatian Orienteering Federation for many years ignores and marginalizes this important sporting event.

The orienteering club "RIS" Delnice is established on February 12th 2000. It promotes orienteering in Delnice, Gorski Kotar and Primorsko – goranska county in order to someday achieve the status of the Olympic sport.
It assists Club members in the quality development in order to worthily represent the club on sports and a personal level. In the area of Gorski kotar, club members organized the 1998 European military and 1999 World military orienteering championship and 2010 World radio goniometry championship.
Taking into account the regional competition Alpe Adria Cup in 2004 it may be concluded that the specific areas covered by green karst and proximity to coastal resorts are a winning combination that every year attracts a growing number of fans of this sport.
Orijentacijski sport - suvremeni oblik aktivnog odmora
Tranzitivni oblik različitih načina kretanja čovjeka u prirodi je temelj za nastanak većine sportskih aktivnosti. Orijentacijski sport je vrlo zanimljiv individualni sport koji omogućava svim zainteresiranima da osim fizičke kondicije usavrše svoje znanje iz područja čitanja i primjene karte, te upotrebe kompasa.
Orijentacijski sport zahtijeva sudjelovanje, a ne promatranje, što ga čini atraktivnim i prihvatljivim, kako sportašima tako i rekreativcima. Okružje za bavljenjem ovim sportom su široki netaknuti šumski prostori, te, posljednjih godina, urbana područja u kojima se organiziraju sprint utrke koje osim svoje atraktivnosti imaju i vrlo važnu promidžbenu ulogu.
Form of human movement in nature is the basis for development of most outdoor sport activities. Orienteering sport is very interesting individual sport which allows all participants not only to improve their physical performance but also to improve their map reading and compass skills. It is not a sport for passive bystanders because its attractiveness and acceptability is achieved through involvement. Orienteering mostly takes place on vast untouched wooded areas, and, over recent years, urban areas where sprint races are organized, which beside their attractiveness also have a promotional character.
