Mokropoljska oaza - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

If you find your self alone in this part of Dalmatia first time, it's better for you to stay out of finding this oasis. Meaby strange conclusion but true, for this piece of nature know's only local residents, and in most cases they dont want sporadic visitors to be those who also enjoy in Zrmanja river. Main reason for that is fear of pollution, and this is their original way to keep place clean and wonderfull.
But if you have lucky as me, than you will find your guide for adventure in Mokro polje (Wet Field), in area of Croatian city Knin, 3 km before Zrmanja turns on west.
Most time as you get closer to this specially place, you will fill just like someone who go deeper and deeper in the magic labyrinth, and then, suprisse! Pure and wild nature offers what is most needed in the days of tropical heat. Very cold water in which at first seems it's impossible to get, but only half a minute of courage and you're in the best possible relaxation pool for body and soul.
In addition, this is one of the rare places in area that does not have any neighboring house, so the water is perfectly clean, not just for swimming, but also for drinking.

Ako se slučajno nađete sami u ovom delu Dalmacije prvi put, savet vam je - bolje ne tražite ovu oazu. Neočekivan ali istinit zaključak, za ovo čudo prirode znaju samo lokalni stanovnici koji u većini slučajeva ne žele sporadične posetioce u Zrmanjskoj vodi. Jednostavno, to je njihov način da spreče zagađenje i čuvaju ovo mesto čistim i predivnim.
A ako ipak imate sreće kao i ja, pronaći ćete dobrog vodiča za avanturu u Mokrom polju, smešteno u oblasti opštine Knin, tačno tri kilometara pre nego li reka Zrmanja promeni tok ka zapadu.
Većim delo puta, kako se bližite odredištu, imaćete osećaj kao da ste sve dublje i dublje u nekakvom čarobnom lavirintu, da bi vas nakraju dočekalo iznenađenje! Netaknuta i divlja priroda koja nudi baš ono što vam je potrebno u danima tropskih vrelina, a to je hladna voda Zrmanje u koju vam se isprva čini da nećete ući, ali posle samo nekoliko hrabrih trenutaka dobićete najbolji mogući bazen za relaksaciju duše i tela.
Nije ni čudo kada u okolini od desetak kilometara nema nijedne jedine kuće, tako da ova voda nije samo savršena za kupanje, već i kada treba da se utoli žeđ.

The area of the Velebit mountains is now a National Park and the Zmanja is popular for kayak and river trips, having a reputation of being one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe.
