By constructing an iron fence, right through the beautiful Kupa region, Slovenia has made Croatia somewhat an unwilling buffer for the influx of the refugees coming from Bosnia, trying to reach Europe. Due to the fence, the tourism activities collapsed and a whole new set of dynamics were generated. The region has become the arena attracting extreme-right nationalists, human rights activists, politicians, police and border forces, migrants and refugees who are trying to reach Europe.
