Long time ago, 33km long Zasavica stream has been named "Bara" ["Puddle"] by the local people.

Zasavica and its side had been put under the State protection, as a natural treasure of great importance. Zasavica is an oasis for almost 200 diferent plant species, 120 bird species and about 20 species of fish, amphibians and reptiles.

This year in April, thanks to the present of The Bavarian government, Zasavica got back its former inmate, European beaver, which is now again a respected habitant of this beautiful reservation.

We must point out that the greatest acknowledgment for preservation goes to always good - willing locals who live nearby and with Zasavica.
