Tara National Park - SERBIA - UNESCO TENTATIVE
Among the 11 sites that Serbia has submitted to UNESCO as tentative to enter the WHS list, Ratka was able to find 3 postcards for me. The first one shows the Tara National Park, located in the western part of the country. This nature reserve is filled with limestone rivers, sinkholes, canyons and bays and its the place where the famous Serbian Spruce grows. Thank you very much Ratka for another bautiful card, let's hope it will become a World Heritage Site soon. This postcard took 9 days to arrive!
The Tara National Park represents a mountainous area with exceptionally important geo-eorphological, hydrographic and ecological natural values. The Tara National Park comprises the mountainous region located in a large elbow shaped curve of the Drina river formed by this river in the central section of its course. In morphological terms, the area of the National Park comprises a group of mountain elevations ( highest elevations about 1600 m.) and sharp relief intersected by deep cut river canyons.
