  • THE PLITVICE LAKES NATIONAL PARK SINCE 1949  Croatia's first National park established in 1949 covers 296.85 km2 of breathtaking natural splendor becoming with it the largest among the eight national parks of the country. Ranging in altitude from 367 m (Koranski most) to 1279 m (Seli??ki vrh) above sea level. The park was inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1979, in recognition of its "outstanding natural beauty and undisturbed production of travertine (tufa) through chemical and biological action". The park represents a phenomenon of karst hydrography.

  • CROATIAN PEARL The park “hosts” a grand collection of waterfalls, gallery of lakes, forest and diversity of animal life. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. The sixteen lakes which are formed by natural dams of travertine are separated into upper and lower lakes. About eight km of pathways and wooden walking trails around lakes are accessible to visitors. Trails are descending from an altitude of 636m to 503m above sea level.

  • NATURAL MONUMENT   Plitvice lakes are recognized as an astonishing natural monument for the benefit and enjoyment of the people now and for the generations to come. Today, 60 years after its establishment, Plitvice Park continues to provide inspiration for visitors becoming nowadays one of Croatia's biggest attractions. Thousands of people from all over the world visit the Park during summer. They come to find peace and relaxation just to experience something different as a getaway from the city. Hiking is a common activity with organized programs for park visitors, other possible activities include: electric boat and train ride, cycling, skiing and rowing.

  • KRKA WATERFALLS  The Krka National Park is located entirely within the territory of Sibenik - Knin County and encompasses an area of 109 square kilometers along the Krka River. The national park covers the major part of the course of this amazing river, and in addition to natural monuments it abounds with cultural and historical monuments. The most outstanding of these is the Franciscan monastery on the tiny isle of Visovac, set like a precious stone in the middle of a lake like widening in the river. Within the monastery there is a picture gallery and a church whose origins can be traced back to the 14th century.

  • SEVEN WATERFALLS   The main attraction of the Krka National Park is its seven waterfalls. The widest of these is Roski slap, although Skradinski buk is the biggest and most well known. It is small wonder that most visitors gather around those two waterfalls for, in addition to being able to enjoy the magic and roar of the water, one can also enjoy walks through a myriad of paths which, for the most part, follow ancient trails, testified to by the numerous little bridges. All around Roski slap and Skradinski buk is any number of rest places, the most favored being in front of old stone house set in the shade of surrounding trees.
