Karlovac freshwater aquarium opened for public

22. October 2016

The Karlovac freshwater aquarium was officially opened for public this Saturday. A unique tourist and museum attraction is located directly on the right bank of the river Korana. The goal of the project design was to validate the promenade and make a new city focal point. The building is completely embedded in the natural Korana environment.
An exceptionally successful cooperation with the city of Karlovac resulted in a project which is a positive example of a realization financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The public institution Aquatica - Freshwater aquarium Karlovac was built as part of the "Freshwater Aquarium and the Museum of the river - KAquarium" project which was co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Programme Regional Competitiveness 2007- 2013 in the amount of 36,222,282.45kn, and the total value of the project is 36,691,939.25kn. The EU has recognized the importance and value of this idea and placed the project among 15 of the total 144 registered projects.
