National & Nature Parks in Croatia

National parks

Untouched nature, diversity of flora and fauna, escape from city’s asphalt, and noise is reasons why the interest for National Parks is constantly increasing on a visiting list. There are 8 National Parks in Croatia: Brijuni, Kornati, Krka, Mljet, Paklenica, Plitvice Lakes, Risnjak and North Velebit.

They are primarily intended for the preservation of exceptional natural values. All the Parks are different, but each one is truly unique. The most famous National Parks are Plitvice Lakes, Krka and Brijuni. Plitvice Lakes are also the largest and oldest Park, with their mesmerizing lakes and environment which is the reason they are listed on UNESCO World Heritage list.

Krka can boast with some lakes and waterfalls, and it is interesting that the oldest hydroelectric power plant in the world and the first one in Europe is located here. The hydroelectric power plant was built only three days after the first one in the Niagara Falls. North Velebit National Park is a favorite among hikers due to a large number of hiking trails, while Risnjak is a favorite destination for scientists and natural scientists. Paklenica is especially interesting because of its forest and geomorphological characteristics, mostly visited by climbers. The National Park Mljet can be classified as “sea” National Parks. It covers part of the island of Mljet. Beautiful island with pine trees and breathtaking lakes. The Kornati are also protected, and only one-quarter of the area makes land. Particularly interesting for divers. Brijuni are a favorite tourist destination with a rich history dating back to the third millennium BC.
