National Parks of Gotneska & Nanaviit


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Official page about the Gothian National Park Agency, for short GNP.

We where created on the 1st January 1899, By King Christian IV and Prime Minister Jan Eriksson. The GNP was created 28 years after the first national park in Gotneska was created. The wurld famous Mount Eefje National Park. Located in the nations so called Fairy Mts. but officially the Kendovstrunmahhe Mountains
 

This is how we classify different types of National Park Sites!

National Park (NP): a scenic or historically important area of countryside protected by the federal government for the enjoyment of the general public or the preservation of wildlife.

National Heritage Site (NHS): is a heritage site having a value that has been registered by a governmental agency as being of national importance to the cultural heritage or history of that country.

National Historical Landmark (NHL): is a building, district, object, site, or structure that is officially recognized by the Kingdom of Gotneska’s  government for its outstanding historical significance.

 

(OOC this topic will go over a single National Park and how and when it became a National Park. It will include things like best camping, hiking area and etc.)

Mount Eefje National Park

(Gotäish: Eefjefjall þjóðgarður)

Est. 22 April 1876

Mount Eefje is the first national park created in Gotneska, it is also one of the first ones created in the wurld. Mt. Eefje is a Stratovolcano. Meaning that its has more explosive eruptions but over longer periods of time.

The last major eruption happen in the Summer of 1786. Records of the eruption are very hard to come by as the mountain is in a area of historical very low human population. But there are some famous Folk tales that date back to 1300 AD. That have added to the overall history of how humans lived with the threat of this massive Volcano erupting.

This castle is located on the southern most point of Gotneska. It has long been a important land object for maritimers. But the castle is also know for hundreds of sunken ships. The castle it self has tons of history from its early origins dating back to the 7th century all the way to its abomination sometime during the 16th century, No one really knows why it was left but historian’s have ideas but most are not accepted by the community.

This park is one of the most popular parks within Gotneska. One reason is it’s located to the major cities of the eastern coast and it’s beautiful sand beaches, which are very rare for Gotneska.

The park is centered around Queens Lake, but there is also waterfalls but most shocking is the parks 15km Sand dunes that run along the southern part of the lake.

The Northern Yetis Mountains International Wildlife Refuge is a wildlife refuge that spans the borders of the Kingdom of Gotneska to the south and the Tribal Republic of Nanaviit to the north. The wildlife refuge for short NYMIWR includes a large variety of species of plants and animals, such as  grizzly bears, black bears, moose, caribou, wolves, eagles, lynx, wolverine, marten, beaver and migratory birds, which rely on the refuge.


The area has been officially made illegal for hunting except for the native nomadic peoples of the region. The area also only has a couple of man made trails and besides that there is little to no human footprint.

Tribal Republic of Nanaviit Environmental and Climate Administration.

Hello and welcome to our co-shared page of National parks, Historical places, Heritage sites. And much more. The reason we have decided to join the Gotneskan National Park form is one simple fact. If it wasn’t from them most of the lands now classified as park land or refuges are because of our time being part of the Great Goutian Empire.

We hope that you find all our places beautiful and amazing. And we like to thank our southern neighbors for kick starting our Environmental and Climate Administration.
