Una River



 

This river, by many the most beautiful river in the entire country, is cherished by each community that has formed along her 207 kilometers.

The Una is to the Krajina what the Neretva is to Herzegovina – life, and the life-giving forces of the Una have been revered throughout this region's history. 

In the underground aquifer systems of Grmec Mountain the Una River basin is home to the Proteus newt. Over one hundred and seventy types of medicinal herbs grow along her banks. Twenty eight kinds of fish make their home in the Una, the largest being the huchen which grows to over 30 kg. Anglers can vie for the rich supply of trout, grayling, chub and carp found throughout the entire length of the river.

Chamois seek refuge in Grmuca Canyon carved by the Una's constant flow and small crayfish can be seen darting along the crystal clear sand basin. The sometimes steep corridors are not always conducive to navigating her beautiful waters yet one of the most frequent motifs of the Una are the small boats with anglers and the ever-increasing number of rafters and kayakers.

This river has created a harmony with man, fish, birds, willows, bridges and old mills rarely seen today.
