LIMSKI KANAL – LIM FJORD
LIM CHANNEL – LIM FJORD
This flooded karstic canyon, which has been declared “a special maritime reserve” and “an area of outstanding natural beauty”, is a testimony to the climatic changes and geological evolution of Istria. With its emerald green sea and varied vegetation this is one of the most beautiful fjords on the Adriatic coast.
How is it become? A few million years, during the miocene, there was flowing a river. The sea level was considerably lower (about 50 meters), a miocene rain the river had worked so strong that the water washed away the limestone continues to further deepen the riverbed. Sea level rise, the sea is literally drowning the river and miocene with its rains stopped and the rivers dried up. And this is the explanation of the origin Lim channels.
