The thrill of discovery in Konavle

A special project in Konavle, south of Dubrovnik, has been created by a local mother-of-three with the aim of serving the unique requirements of autistic and special-needs children. Sveta Ana Adrenaline Park, owned and operated by Helena Šlahter, is an oasis of dynamic activities designed to deveolp the motor and sensory receptors of such children. Although the park is open to everybody, autistic and special-needs children enjoy the activites and access to the park’s specialists free-of-charge.
