A unique attraction opened in Croatia: Skywalk

first_imgThe lookout point can be reached by the Biokovo road, which leads from the entrance reception of the Biokovo Nature Park, approximately 6 km east of Makarska, to the highest Biokovo peak, Sv. It runs at an altitude of 1762 meters, which makes it the highest paved road in Croatia. The total value of this project is approximately HRK 31 million, of which grants from the European Structural and Investment Funds amount to around HRK 27 million. The rest is financed by the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency and own funds of users and partners – Makarska Development Agency MARA and the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service – HGSS. Landscaping of the Skywalk Biokovo is part of the project ‘New Adrion – Promoting sustainable use of natural heritage PP Biokovo, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020, and is the largest and most demanding financially project in the history of the Public Institution “Biokovo Nature Park”. From the Heavenly Promenade, the view is of Tučepi, Podgora and Makarska, the Dalmatian islands of Hvar, Brač, Vis, Korčula, Pelješac, and in particularly nice weather, after the famous Biokovo bora clears the horizon, the view reaches Cape Monte Gargano in Italy. The lookout is located at an altitude of 1228 meters above sea level, on the 13th kilometer of the Biokovo road, next to the info – center. It is a horseshoe-shaped lookout, with a glass base for walking, which in the most convex point in the length of 12 meters covers the cliffs of Ravna Vlaška. The most impressive and complex part of this EU project is the construction of a horseshoe-shaped belvedere outside the cliff with a glass surface for walking called the Skywalk Biokovo. Approximately eight million kuna was invested in the construction of this building and the reconstruction of the existing lookout. The lookout is open to all visitors from Thursday, July 02nd.center_img Photo: For Biokovo Nature Park Plamenko Cvitić Photo: For Biokovo Nature Park – Plamenko Cvitić As part of the lookout, a geological pillar was built – a three-dimensional view of the cross-section of the rocks that formed the area of ​​Biokovo from its inception until today with a geological table of time and a description of the age and type of rocks.
