Dobra river.

(The Dobra is a river located mostly in the Karlovac County in the Republic of Croatia. It is 104 kilometres (65 mi) long and its basin covers an area of 900 square kilometres (350 sq mi). Dobra rises in Gorski Kotar near Skrad and Ravna Gora, where it flows first to the north and then turns to the east. It flows past Vrbovsko, to the southeast into the city of Ogulin, where it becomes an underground stream. It takes a sharp northward turn and rises back to the surface north of Ogulin. It continues to the northeast, past the Leš?e spa and a hydroelectric plant , running in parallel to the Kupa and Mrežnica, and finally flows into the Kupa north of Karlovac.) . Mreznica river (The Mrežnica is a river in Karlovac County, Croatia. It is 63 kilometres (39 mi) long and its basin covers an area of 64 square kilometres (25 sq mi).

From there it flows northwards through Croatia, where it finally reaches the river Kupa at Karlovac. The soil of the karst region, through which this river flows consists of limestone. Under certain physical and chemical conditions the river is constantly creating new soil from plants (see: Plitvice Lakes).
