Learn about this ambitious project!

We’re thrilled to share the incredible journey of restoring the natural beauty and vitality of Starohorský Creek, nestled near the picturesque village of Staré Hory in the sub catchment of the Hron River, in Slovakia. 

The step from stone with a wooden sill, which once hindered the flow of the creek, was successfully removed in November 2023, marking a significant milestone in our river restoration efforts, opening up 28km of newly accessible river habitat. 

Learn about the inception of this ambitious project, which dates to 2021 with the initiation of the ORP initiative. Despite initial challenges and hurdles, including the need for extensive communication with stakeholders, the project documentation was finally brought to life, leading to the successful removal of the barrier in late 2023.
