Follow the drift of the river and east of Maribor, alongside the old riverbed, set off along this exceptional river (side) surface, which creates the image of the Drava Regional Park.
Unique between Maribor and Ptuj
The park extends over the old riverbed of the Drava and the countryside along it between Maribor and Ptuj and thus represents one of the last parts of the natural riverbed with ecological and natural environmental biotopes of the highest value. Because there are habitats here of rare and threatened flora and fauna they are given special protection by national and international legislations. In the community of Duplek there are signs for you to follow that will lead you around this unique natural park.
At all events it is worth looking at:
- the old riverbed,
- spring waters with their sources and
- flood meadows.
