Ponikve educational trail opened in the hinterland of Bakar

first_imgWhile other destinations in Kvarner were developing as tourists, the city of Bakar, due to industry, has been in tourist isolation for decades. With the departure of Koksara, this city, thanks to the activities of the tourist community, slowly began to revive tourism, primarily through numerous summer events.Wanting to make a step towards the year-round tourist offer, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar began the spring with the opening of the Ponikve Educational Trail, which is located near the village of Ponikve in the Bakar hinterland. Namely, it is a phenomenon of karst lake that arises and disappears, which has so far intrigued passers-by, but now there will be many more in the Ponikvar valley because all plant, animal, historical and karst features are united in an 8,5 km long educational trail. was realized with the funds of the City of Bakar, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar and the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.”The Ponikve educational trail was created as an incentive for the local population to recognize Ponikve as an excursion destination throughout the year and as an additional offer for tourists who can get to know the diverse natural heritage of our region in Ponikve. Lake “now it is, now it is not” is a special tourist offer precisely because it is a real magic trick of nature that brings visitors in one moment enjoying the peace and greenery of the rich flora (over 600 plant species and one endemic) which is also the habitat of three large beasts (wolf, bear and lynx) and getting to know the remains of the past by climbing to the Liburnian forts on the slopes with unforgettable views, and at another moment brings a view of the impressive lake and the possibility of diving in it or for a little less brave, a boat ride on its surface. With the first storm, the water recedes and the lake disappears, so Ponikve is an unavoidable destination of the copper hinterland that is always worth visiting because you never know how nature will play and whether you will be greeted by a lake or green valley ideal for a trip and stay in nature., emphasized the director of the Tourist Board Sonja Jelušić Marić and pointed out that the beauty and richness of this landscape can be seen on the website TZ Bakra where there are fascinating photographs taken by diver photographers and a wealth of information about the diversity of Ponikava.In Ponikve, a fascinating and unpredictable game of nature takes place in which the green Ponikvera valley instantly turns into a lake up to 20 m deep when rains and melted snow fill the underground caves with water and it erupts to the surface. Then the forest world becomes underwater and flowering trees in the spring, paths, dry stone walls and hunting lodges become a unique paradise for divers.The lake “now it has it, now it is gone” is a natural phenomenon that is a great basis for various tourist stories, of course the lake itself is a phenomenal story, but it should certainly be enriched with various “spices” ie extensions of tourist stories related to the lake. . One of these is the educational educational trail, and the sequel I hope is yet to come. read more

Losses hurt more as Lakers begin to adjust expectations

In each of the past four seasons, the Lakers have been so often outmatched on the court, that the wins were rare and difficult to predict. The late-season results were tracked more for the impact on the draft lottery than development, and the playoffs were so far out of reach that they were given little thought.Now, sitting seven games back from the eight seed with 19 games to go, the Lakers are just close enough to the playoff race to miss it.“Last year we really weren’t playing for anything,” Randle said. “We were playing to obviously develop us as players, but this year I feel that we’re playing to develop a culture. We’re really learning how to win games and we come in expecting to win games.”But since the All-Star break, Walton’s team has summoned previously unseen resolve, knocking off five teams in a row before succumbing to Portland. Damian Lillard takes over late as Blazers end Lakers’ 5-game win streak Lakers finding meaning in season’s final stretch as wins keep coming “We were kind of going one-on-one a little, hoping people would make a big shot,” Walton said, “and we’ve got to be better on that.”The Lakers had a chance to force overtime, down by three with 7.4 seconds left. But Isaiah Thomas’ shot was stripped by Shabazz Napier and the Lakers (28-35) lost 108-103.It was an impressive effort with second-year forward Brandon Ingram out at least a week with a groin injury and the Lakers already without rookie defensive specialist Josh Hart due to hand surgery.“Our guys battled last night,” Walton said. “They built a 10-, 11-point lead against a playoff team without those guys.”The level of competition stiffens over the final month of the season. After hosting Orlando on Wednesday, in the next week the Lakers will face Denver twice, Cleveland and play at Golden State.Related Articles Brandon Ingram out with groin strain for at least a week, Lakers say Their final five games, starting on April 3, feature two games against the Utah Jazz, and matchups with the Spurs, Rockets, Timberwolves and Clippers. All are either teams in the playoffs or in the mix for the final slot in the Western Conference.With 30 wins on the horizon, Lakers players have started speaking openly about a desire to get into the playoff picture, to shake up the race. Walton prefers to keep his team’s focus on what is directly in front of it.“They know how important it is for us to continue to build and get better,” he said. “We can’t waste the last 20 games of the season. We have to use these as opportunities to build momentum into the summer, whether it’s the playoffs or not. Build momentum and confidence and get better. Because it’s all part of the journey we’re on to get back to being a playoff and eventually a championship team.” EL SEGUNDO — The evidence was all over the faces of Lakers players as they sat through a film session on Tuesday, the morning after they blew an 11-point fourth-quarter lead and lost to the Portland Trail Blazers.Expectations have changed for the Lakers.“Last night, we went home after the game very disappointed,” forward Julius Randle said. “We definitely go into games feeling like we should win.”Coach Luke Walton stressed that “there wasn’t a dark cloud” over his team. “There was still laughter and joy once we got out here to the court,” he said.
