The wells on Rajčica, one of the most beautiful natural phenomena of the Kliška hinterland, are insufficiently known to the public both because of their inaccessibility and because of the mystique and the fact that they have not been sufficiently explored. However, that will soon change as well, and the Municipality of Klis, with funds financed from the European Union, is reconstructing the tractor road in the forest road that connects Brštanovo, Nisko and Matase in Lećevica.
Thus, 10 natural wells surrounded by dry stone walls, which are intangible Croatian cultural heritage, will become an unavoidable tourist attraction and with the arrangement of trails, rest areas and lookouts Klis, Solin, Kaštela, Lećevica and Klis will complete the cycling route in Split-Dalmatia County.
Very little is known about the wells of Rajčica, the legend says that the wells were there even before the arrival of the Romans, and that they never dried up. Either way the wells are there, they are intriguing and it is necessary to thoroughly research the whole history and story around the wells. But this spring of life in one of the driest parts of the Dalmatian hinterland certainly has its own story that needs to be protected, preserved and told.
The project of reconstruction of the tractor road into the forest road connecting Brštanovo, Nisko and Matase in Lećevica is worth 2 million kuna and the amount that will be fully financed from the measure Rural Development 4.3.3., Without burdening the municipal budget. Also, the Municipality of Klis, in cooperation with its proactive Business Incubator Klis, received about 3 million kuna for the project of installing LED lighting, arranging and renovating rest areas and lookouts, as well as the bike path in Zagora.
The Municipality of Klis points out that they are applying for all projects, and when that is the case, it is logical that something will go well, isn't it? It’s easiest to say no money, whine and apologize for your not working, but it’s always been and always will be how it is all the way to people. Courage, effort, proactivity always pays off.
The municipality of Klis is another positive example of how much can be achieved in the development of tourism with various grants and programs. And others, let them still just whine, so more money and space will be left for those who want to work and develop.
Rajčica wells, a new pearl of cultural tourism in Zagora?
I wonder: How many more natural, historical, cultural and other treasures is Croatia hiding, and we don't know about them? Why don't we respect ourselves? What do institutions do? Why is this site not protected? This is just another of a thousand stories we must be proud of, protect and tell to our tourists.
Continental tourism as well as the Dalmatian hinterland should flourish from tourism, not decay.
