Krka National Park : Croatia - Postcard

Thanks Josip again for sending me postcard.

Krka National Park  is one of the Croatian national parks, named after the river Krka that it encloses. It is located along the middle-lower course of the Krka River in central Dalmatia, in Šibenik-Knin county, downstream Miljevci area, and just a few kilometers northeast of the city of Šibenik. It was formed to protect the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985.

This postcard has 2 beautiful stamps.

1) Eleonora Sokol 2011 : Eleonora's Falcon  is a medium-sized falcon. It belongs to the hobby group, a rather close-knit number of similar falcons often considered a subgenus Hypotriorchis.

2) Sredozemna Medvjedica  2011 : The Mediterranean monk seal is a pinniped belonging to the Phocidae family. At some 450–510  remaining individuals, it is believed to be the world's second-rarest pinniped and one of the most endangered mammals in the world.
