Čigoć - a village in which more white storks than people live

In 1994 Euronatur, the European Foundation, proclaimed the little village of Čigoć the first European Stork Village. Because of the exceptionally propitious natural conditions, on almost every house or byre the white storks make their nests, and there are more of them than people. For in the 45 active nests there are sometimes more than 200 storks, while in the seventy or so houses there are no more than 120 local inhabitants, which speaks eloquently of the harmonious relationship between man and nature in the area.


Sleeping in a Posavina old wooden house - "korablja" built in 1790. is a special experience. In the evening you go to sleep with a orchestra of frogs, and in the morning roosters wake you up.
