"Karst under protection – gift for the future generations“

Let us continue to rediscover the karst with joint efforts and to promote it among the people with your original works - they deserve to learn more about this natural phenomenon. Not only because it is unique and attractive and still hides many secrets, but also because it is widespread, and its nature and specificity continue to be insultingly unknown to our contemporaries.

We wish all future participants in the competition a lot of inspiration.
We will be happy to congratulate you in 2021 as the next winners in one of the competition categories.
