NATURE PARK TELAŠČICA
Wonderful harmony of nature, islands, quiet coves, stunning cliffs, alpine forests of pine, oak and fields, vineyards and ancient olive groves. Also one of the safest, most beautiful and largest natural harbors in the Adriatic.
Briefly about the Nature Park:
Of 15 ˚ 07 '53.26'' to 15 ˚ 12' 36.14'' East longitude
Of 43 ˚ 52 '52.23'' to 43 ˚ 56' 18.83'' north latitude
Nature Park "Telašcica" is located in the extreme southeastern part of the island. Recognizable features of the Nature Park are three unique geomorphological phenomena: cliffs, salt lake and bay Park.
It covers an area of 70.50 km2. 25.95 km2 land belongs to Long Island and adjacent islets, and 44.55 km2 sea. The largest share of the land applies to Long Island (93.4%), while others are associated islands, islets and reefs (6.6%).
Within the boundaries of the park there is no permanent settlements, and the nearest village is Sali on Long Island.
Relief of the park is dominated by karst features conditional limestone-dolomite structure. Featured are all forms of relief in the rubble: cracks, stoneware, sinkholes, sinkholes, karst fields, dry valleys and differentiated forms of coastal karst topography.
Mir is located on the southwestern part of the Nature Park. Situated in a narrow strip of land between the Gulf Park and the open sea. It was created by a karst depression met the sea after the last ice age, when there has been a rising sea level to about 120 meters.
Interesting lakes ...
Peloid lake is salty, slightly sulfur marine mud composed mainly of minerals. Mud therapy does not "cure" a specific disease, but is a valuable tool in the treatment of numerous diseases.
The foam that is often seen on the shore of the lake is due to the intensive growth of phytoplankton organisms. The unfavorable living conditions, when plankton missing nutrients or reproduce in large numbers, they start to secrete increased organic compounds. Battering waves to the shore of these compounds formed foam.
In the bay are important marine meadows three strictly protected species of seagrass Posidonia oceanica and Cymodocea nodosa and Zostera less Nolte. Posidonia beds extending from a depth of about 5 m to the depth of about 20-25 meters Posidonia Oceanica, popularly known as "seaweed", an endemic species of the Mediterranean Sea. Due to various influences such as climate change, invasive species, and many human activities such as anchoring Posidonia meadows are highly endangered.
On the outer side of the bay Telašcica vertical cliffs rise to prominent cliffs on the Adriatic Sea known as insular "rock." Cliffs stretching from Cape Mrzlovica the North slope to the top of the Velo SE, rising above the sea surface to 161 m at the location Grpašćak. Below sea level is lowered to a depth of about 85 m was created due to tectonic events, moving and underscore the Adriatic lithospheric microplate under the Eurasian plate.
