Plitvice Lakes

Every tour through Croatia includes its most beautiful natural attraction - Plitvice Lakes (abbreviated Plitvice). Located in the heart of Croatia, Plitvice is a destination of all Croatian tourist buses and individuals who explore this beautiful country.

If you plan to visit Plitvice, I recommend reserving at least one day for it. The best option is to arrive there at 8 am when the Park opens (opening time may vary slightly depending on the season). My bet is you will not want to leave before closing time. Many individuals or groups book a night accommodation somewhere in or near the Park, so they can enjoy a multi-day visit.

The park attractions include beautiful waterfalls (Milinovacki waterfall, Big waterfall, Milka Trnina Cascades etc.), viewport of the lakes and flora and fauna. Proposed tours include electric boat and train rides and walking around the lakes.

Alongside Dubrovnik, Sibenik features the most interesting fortification system in Croatia. These amazing buildings are a historic symbol of the millennial struggle of Sibenik for freedom and defence of own culture.

The most dangerous enemy was Osman Empire which tried to conquer Sibenik a few times but never succeeded.

In 2022, all the fortresses are open for visitors, including St. John's fortress, which opened its door in June 2022, after 5 years of reconstruction.

Zadar has unique architectural phenomena: sea playing music. You can see and hear the music played by sea waves on Zadar Riva.
Except for this architectural masterpiece, Zadar's Riva is one of the top spots to enjoy a sunset in Croatia.

Located in the south of Croatia, Dubrovnik features the most imposing fortification system in the whole Europe. Thanks to its fortification, walls and diplomacy, Dubrovnik retained its freedom for hundreds of years.
The tour around the walls will cost you 30 euros, which is quite expensive, but the sights are beautiful.

Biokowo Skywalk is a newly opened glamorous tourist attraction, located inside the nature park Biokovo, at the 13th kilometre of Biokovo Road. It's a kind of glass promenade "in the air", with an amazing panoramic view of Makarska Riviera and nearby areas.
Except for being famous due to Skywalk, Biokovo mountain is a great resource for hikers, mountain bikers, and nature lovers, since it contains lots of trails and unique flora and fauna.
Biokovo Park has reopened for visitors on June 17, 2022.
