Enver Krivac: “U Fordu” (Zebar)

Authorial Boras


The Zebar area was the inspiration for the story “U Fordu” (In the Ford) by: Enver Krivac


Zebar lies on the hill overlooking the lake of Tribalj, ripe with fascinating flora and fauna and also the area with the most significant Liburnija karst deposits of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar county.
Extreme environmental changes on these stretches of karst cliffs towering over Vinodol are a prerequisite for great biodiversity, but also biogeographical phenomena, since it is the meeting place of both Mediterranean and alpine plants and animals.
According to the Habitats Directive of the Council of Europe (NATURA 2000), this is the habitat for a great number of endangered plants.
