Croatia is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular destinations, with its glorious beaches, picturesque villages and sublime Game-of-Thrones scenery. Here are some of our favourite things to do.
1. Visit Plitvice Lakes National Park
With a rightful place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Plitvice Lakes National Park is perhaps Croatia’s best-known natural attraction. What you’ll see is not one, not two, but 16 small lakes joined by cascading waterfalls and surrounded by lush forests of beech, fir and spruce. When it comes to wildlife, the park is simply bursting at the seams. It is home to several species of amphibians and many different types of bird and mammals ranging from wild boar to deer.
Explore this UNESCO-listed paradise and take a cruise across the largest lake in the park on our Croatia’s Istrian Coast holiday.
2. Explore Krka National Park
For another great day out, head to Krka National Park. Its foremost attraction is the magnificent waterfalls carved through limestone hills. The most famous are the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, 17 separate falls, which tumble into a natural pool that’s open for bathing in the summer months. The park’s flora and fauna are also of note, with more than 800 different types of plants identified in the area, and more than 200 types of bird seen here.
