A welcome addition to our programme, Plitvice Lakes is a nature lover’s dream and undoubtedly one of the most remarkable locations in Europe – justly included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Here, in a serene setting of a National Park, characterised by seemingly uninterrupted woodlands, 16 emerald lakes are connected by waterfalls which cascade in pleasant endlessness. Visitors will appreciate this unique wonder of nature while wandering along decked walkways and wooden bridges that criss-cross the whole area in a unique maze of paths.

Plitvice Travel Guide

Enjoying its nature sanctuary status, Plitvice Lakes are home to a wide range of flora and fauna, as well as numerous marked trails stretching over a ridge dominated by three main peaks. Try the 9 km long Plitvica walk or the more strenuous 21 km long Corkova Uvala trail and immerse yourself in this pristine area of an outstanding beauty. Walk through dense woodlands along 4 km long Plitvica Stream path all the way up to see emerald waters gushing out from its source. After passing through Plitvica hamlet, watch the stream reaching the Lower Lakes canyon where the waters plunge over 80 metre limestone cliffs, forming the 'Great Waterfall' - the highest one in Croatia.

Walking

To most UK visitors, Croatia is a synonym for sun-drenched holidays on the beautiful Adriatic coast. Yet this amazing country benefits from incredibly varied and rocky hinterland mountains, which offer a unique combination of peaceful countryside and balmy Mediterranean climate, providing a long walking season, which starts early in spring and ends late in autumn. Croatian mountains are most famous for its near perfect National Parks, ideal for exploring and walking amidst serene nature.

Food & Drink

Eating out is inexpensive and delicious in Croatia. There is a huge variety of local and international dishes to enjoy and the Adriatic is a fish lovers’ paradise, having over 370 species that can be cooked in almost as many ways: 'Brodet', a dish made of several kinds of fish, deserves special attention. Another excellent choice is the 'Prsut', the dark smoked Dalmatian ham. Try paprika flavoured salami or various mature domestic cheeses in olive oil. The wine growing region of Dalmatia produces some great white and red wines.

Currency

The monetary unit in Croatia is the Kuna. There are approx. 10 Kunas to £1 (at Sep 2015). Foreign currency can be exchanged at the airports, banks, exchange bureau, post offices and some hotels within the larger resorts. All major cards are accepted in hotels, restaurants and shops.
