Krka National Park

The national park is a vast and primarily unaltered area of exceptional natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The purpose of the park is primarily to serve science, culture, education and recreation, while tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors. 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 waterfalls and a total drop in altitude of 242 m, the Krka is a natural and karst phenomenon. The travertine waterfalls of the Krka River are the fundamental phenomenon of this river.

National Park Plitvice Lakes

The unique beauty of the National Park Plitvice Lakes lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars, and rare bird species. The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometers and the lakes join together over a distance of 8 kilometers. Plitvice Lakes aren’t just a summer destination, it is a great place to visit at any time of year. There are two entrances to the National Park Plitvice Lakes: Entrance 1, opened all year round, for the lower lakes and Entrance 2, closed in the winter, for the higher lakes. There are several walking trails of different durations mapped out from the entrance and they all include a boat ride and an electric train. The walking trails are clearly marked making it easy to get around and impossible to get lost.

Trogir

Trogir is a remarkable example of urban continuity. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.

Split

The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.  Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the  UNESCO’s World Heritage list ever since 1979, not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city continue to live a full life.
