The Paklenica National Park stretches on an area of 95 km², on the southern slopes of the Velebit Mountain, which is also the location of its highest summits - Vaganski vrh (1757 mamsl) and Sveto brdo (1753 mamsl). It extends across the area where the torrential currents of the Velika Paklenica and Mala Paklenica streams flow, i.e. the area where the famous canyons of these two streams cut vertically into the southern slopes of the Velebit Mountain, and the wider surrounding area. This relatively small area boasts an exceptional wealth of geomorphological phenomena and shapes, a diverse plant and animal life, attractive landscapes, and intact nature. The diversity of the living world depends on the climatic conditions, but also on the rich and diverse geological past.
The recognizable features of the Paklenica National Park are the autochthonous black pine forests, several types of birch forests and deep canyons with torrential streams, namely the Velika Paklenica and the Mala Paklenica. The greater area of the Paklenica National Park boasts rich and diverse cultural heritage as well.More info
The Kornati archipelago – a labyrinth of stone, with eighty nine islands, islets and rocks in the sea. It is the most indented island group in the Mediterranean. Regardless of whether you look at the Kornati Islands from the air, from the sea, or from sightseeing points on the islands, the view is equally impressive – and yet different to the eye every single time. Every vista is more than worth experiencing, and every perspective worth examining. Dry stone walls on the Kornati Islands are silent and steadfast witnesses to hard work on modest soil on stone surrounded by crystal-clear sea. The Kornati Islands are the stone pearls of the Mediterranean.
The islands and islets of Kornati are scattered like in a play of sorts between the stone and the sea.
In good weather, it is a silent play of blue and gray. When the winds start blowing, the archipelago starts speaking in the sound of waves... However, the Kornati Islands are a well-known shelter for sailors whenever the sea shows its rage and strength, too strong to even care about man as a temporary guest.
The Krka National Park lies within the Šibenik-Knin County, and covers a total area of 109 km² of the loveliest sections of the Krka River, and the lower course of the Čikola River.
The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insigniﬁcantly altered ecosystems.
Including the submerged part of the river at the mouth, the Krka River is 72.5 km long, making it the 22nd longest river in Croatia. It springs in the foothills of the Dinara Mountain range, 2.5 km northeast of Knin. With its seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 224 m, the Krka River is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.
It was founded by the Croats more than a thousand years ago, which makes it the oldest city on the Adriatic coast that is authentically Croatian.
It started developing from a settlement formed under St. Michael’s Fortress, built on a steep cliff above the city. The settlement was declared a town in 1169.
When Dalmatia was sold to the Venetians in 1412, Šibenik fell under the rule of the Republic of Venice. To defend themselves from the Ottomans during the difficult wars with the Turks, the locals built numerous fortification systems. The Siege of Sebenico, fought in 1647, was the greatest Ottoman attack on Šibenik.
After switching on the public lights on August 28, 1895, Šibenik became the first city in the world with a fully developed system for production, transmission and local distribution of Tesla’s alternating current, with a hydropower station as its primary source of energy.
Plitvice are considered to be one of the most beautiful European natural resources. The turquoise color of these 16 lakes comes from the deposits of calcium carbonate, while thick woods and the intact nature show elements of virgin forests. The park is the habitat of various kinds of birds and small game, as well as deer, bears, wolves, boars, wild cats, and in the crystal-clear water of these lakes you will see trouts.
Miles long visitor paths are connected with wooden bridges, and the visitors can also use small tourist trains. On the biggest Kozjak lake, you can take a tour on an electrical boat connecting the upper and the lower lakes (gornja i donja jezera).
Take a walk in this heaven on earth during any season, each of them is magical in its own way.
