Nature lovers have plenty to enjoy in Croatia and one of the most outstanding attractions is the Plitvice National Park. The park has a huge forest and is also home to 16 inter-linked lakes and a host of waterfalls. The park’s forest is home to a vast variety of animals and birds some of which cannot be seen anywhere else in Europe.
An equally famous natural attraction is the Kornati National Park. If you desire a bit of me-time, this is the place to visit as the park has more than 80 islets which are mostly uninhabited. Moreover, accommodation on the island brings you even closer to nature as it comprises of stone cottages that are very basic as they were originally built to provide shelter for shepherds and fishermen in ancient times.
To enjoy more of nature and the widest variety of seafood, a visit to the Dalmatian islands is highly recommended. Hvar is the most popular island in the Dalmatians and, like Split, is also free of motor vehicles. In Hvar, you’ll spend your time among fruit orchards and olive groves and you can pursue plenty of water activities including yachting and fishing.
Croatia’s attractions are very diverse and can be enjoyed most times of the year and this makes the country one of the leading tourist destinations in Europe.
