Zvir is the richest spring in the Rijeka area and water from it supplies the Rijeka zone from the right bank of the Rječina to Opatija, but it also has the capacity of supplying water to the entire Rijeka zone. It is situated in Vodovodna Street, only 1.7 km from the sea. This spring never runs out of water and has been in use since 1894., when the old part of the city of Rijeka, 9 years after the city of Sušak (today a part of Rijeka), got a public water supply. Most probably fresh water from the spring was used during ancient times for the need of Roman Tarsatica.

The city of Karlovac is the place of four rivers – Kupa, Korana, Mrežnica and Dobra – the right location for the presentation of the natural wealth of fresh water. The idea of building an aquarium in Karlovac is based on the desire to create this natural and cultural richness with an emphasis on water, into a recognizable attraction. The European Union has perceived the potential of the idea and supported the project; Of the total of 144 applications received, the project was among the 15 selected ones.
The waste water treatment plant of the towns of Karlovac and Duga Resa was built in the framework of the ISPA project, the first communal project in the Republic of Croatia, co-financed with the pre-accession funds of the European Union. The complex consists of three stages of wastewater treatment and started operations on May 30, 2011.
