Welcome to Metković

Posted by on: 17/04/2014

Dear guests, dear friends!

Welcome to Metković, the second largest town of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, and the administrative, economic and cultural centre of the Neretva valley.

Where hills merge with a fertile valley, where a green river and mystical swamps combine with clear blue sea, there is Neretva valley and Metković. You will feel the call of the wild, get to enjoy juicy fruit, especially the tangerines and have a good time!

Located in the valley of the Neretva River, open towards the sea, Metković offers great possibilities for enjoying your vacation. Traditionally turned towards agriculture because of the rich river delta known for its plantations of tangerines and other fruit and vegetables, it is a natural phenomenon and you can also enjoy boat rides (photo safari) and traditional specialties (eel and frog).

The remains of the ancient city of Narona, today's Vid are 4 km southwest of Metković, where the Archaeological museum Narona is built, as the first "in situ" museum in Croatia. Built on the locality of an antique temple dedicated to the 1st Roman emperor Augustus, it shows a unique collection of antique statues made sometime in the 1st century B.C. The Archaeological museum Narona is a unique and unavoidable destination for all lovers of culture, art, history and archaeology.

The best example of a rich and diverse bird population of the Neretva delta can be observed in the ornithological collection of Natural History Museum Metković. Unfortunately, the Dalmatian pelican, griffon duck and marbled teal are gone, but even today we can see bitterns and ferruginous ducks nesting in the Neretva delta. The delta is an important resting place for millions of migratory birds but also a popular destination for many nature lovers.

In Predolac cave you can meet the unique cave shellfish "Congeria", a living fossil, a tertiary relic and unique species to the Dinarid Alps. You can also meet many other animal species living exclusively underground, and those who live in surface waters. All this in one locality that's unique in the world will provide a unique experience to all those visiting this area.

Of interesting events to note are the city features. During May there is the traditional folklore event "Na Neretvu misečina pala", or "Moonlight falls on Neretva", while July is reserved for traditional mullet fishing - Cipolijada, and a contest of jumping into the Neretva. There's also the Roman Night in Narona, which will transport you back in time to Roman times, where gladiator fights and slave markets were prominent. A part of the Day of the Neretva Principality in August is getting to know traditional crafts and village games, watch exciting contests and costume plays. The traditional Neretva boat marathon, "Maraton lađa", where around 30 crews from the Neretva valley and abroad compete, is held on the 2nd Saturday in August.

In addition to rich cultural, historical and natural heritage, you will enjoy our gastronomy and wines, photo safari tours through the untouched swamp, and first of all the kindness and cordiality of our residents.

Welcome to the city of history, culture, nature and sports - experience Metković in your own way!

 

DOBRE VIBRACIJE

Posted by on: 14/06/2019

U srijedu, 19. lipnja 2019. u Gradskom parku Metković će se od 21 sat održati koncert „Dobre vibracije“. Nastupiti će Anđela Brečić, Ivana Pervan, Jelena Bajo, Katarina Talajić i Nataša Borovac.

Repertoar sastavljen od svjetskih i domaćih evergreena odlična je pozivnica svim ljubiteljima dobre glazbe. Zato dođite, uživajte u r`n`b, soul i rock`n` roll glazbi pod vedrim nebom i zaplešite uz dobre vibracije!

Izložba „Komarci - najsmrtonosnije životinje na Zemlji“ biti će predstavljena u Prirodoslovnom muzeju Metković od 7. lipnja  2019. do 15. rujna 2019.


Autori dr. sc. Iva Mihoci i Petar Crnčan sa suradnicima dr. sc. Anom Klobučar i dr. sc. Nediljkom Landekom prikazat će vrijedne zbirke komaraca u Republici Hrvatskoj, važne biološke karakteristike ove značajne vektorske skupine, kao i životni ciklus komarca u akvariju, a kako bi se posjetitelji upoznali s morfologijom razvojnih stadija. Prikazuju se i brojne metode suzbijanja komaraca u Hrvatskoj i to u različitim stadijima. Izložba je u prezentacijskom smislu obogaćena i tehnologijom hologramskog prikaza, a koji se pokazao kao izvrsna metoda vizualizacije ovih sitnih organizama.

Izložba je posvećena prof. dr. sc. Enrihu Merdiću zbog izuzetnog znanstvenog doprinosa poznavanju biologije, ekologije i metoda kontrole populacija komaraca u Hrvatskoj, a može se razgledati do kraja ove godine.

ZANIMLJIVOSTI:
* Komarci uzrokuju više smrtnih slučajeva od bilo koje druge životinje na Zemlji. Oni su prijenosnici uzročnika različitih bolesti kao što su malarija, denga, groznica Zapadnog Nila te brojne druge bolesti
* Oko polovine svjetskog stanovništva neprestano je izloženo visokom riziku od zaraze bolestima koje prenose komarci.
* Do sada je opisano preko 3500 vrsta komaraca u 113 rodova
* Ljudi su oduvijek pokušavali suzbiti komarce, no do danas niti jedan pokušaj nije rezultirao trajnijim uspjehom.
* Ribe Gambusia affinis i Gambusia holbrooki iako djelotvorne u kontroli komaraca i široko introducirane u tu svrhu, obje negativno utječu na populacije autohtonih vrsta riba te zajednice zooplanktona, kukaca i rakova
* Samo ženke komarca sišu krv koja im je potrebna za razvoj jajašaca, dok se mužjaci hrane nektarom.

Izložbu su financijski omogućili Gradski ured za kulturu Grada Zagreba i Ministarstvo kulture Republike Hrvatske, a sponzorirali Hrvatska elektroprivreda d.d. i Janaf d.d.
