Elite capital of Hapsburg monarchy

Lake has elliptic shape, and to go around it you must cross more than 17 km. Many fishermen visit it on regular bases, and nearby woods “challenge” the passionate hunters. Children are not at all neglected, and the first encounter with animal kingdom is possible in Zoo, which is, by many features, one of the most beautiful in Europe. More than hundred animal species live here, and they arrived from almost all parts of the world. Special attraction is, as they say, child zoo, where there are no barriers between children and animal cubs. Here you can also find maintained botanical garden with 800 plant species, although you can find Flora Empire on every step in its surroundings. Attention of admirers of old architecture will most certainly attract Swan house, which reminds of medieval castle. Palić offers also number of historical delights, and the way people once lived and rested is shown in the fact that this very lake, aside  Opatija, Karlovy vary and St Moritz, was the most visited elite center of Hapsburg monarchy.
