Barac Caves

Reviewed By Karen Z - Numbi, Mpumalanga, South Africa

We had a great guide on our trip, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The cave itself had some great sites (although I have seen better looking ones) and lots of history to it. The stories of the guide is what makes it more interesting. It made the activity worthwhile.

Lonjsko Polje Nature Park

Lonjsko Polje Nature Park is the largest protected wetland area in Croatia with indigenous breeds of horses and pigs, waterfowl, one of the largest fish spawning spots and beautiful nature - popular destination for numerous hikers.

Reviewed By Janez Z - Ljubljana, Slovenia

You+ll be surprised when youi'll travel through Lonjsko polje in north Croatia. It's very remote place with distinctive wooden arhitecture with lots of small lakes and puddles or dead river parts. From April till October you can see a lot of birds nesting, most typical the storks, but also a lot of domestic animals that're living free on the huge fields of Lonjsko polje. It's a rather poor resort, not much populated, but people are freindly and open.

the Old Town

Reviewed By Anita811 - Zagreb, Croatia

The Old Town (Stari grad) is the old castle from 16th century. It is famous for its role in the battle against the Turks in 1593 who were defeated here and stopped from going further west. The Kupa river stopped them and most of them drowned attempting to cross the river and storm the castle. The Croats were defending the castle and succedeed. Today this renovated fortress is a museum, open for public, but one must call in advance. There is a great restaurant for having a lunch, and a walking area around. It is very close to the city of Sisak, but one needs some kind of transportation to arrive.

Reviewed By kryspin14 - Daruvar, Croatia

Koně nemiluji, ale návštěva zde pro mne byla příjemným překvapením. Sympatický mladík uměl dobře doplnit atmosféru tohoto místa vyprávěním o jeho historii. Dokonce nás i svezli na vozech, což bylo super! A jak napovídá název recenze - důležitá rada - pozor na poníky! Ať už tady nebo jinde, myslete na to, že poníci koušou ;)

Reviewed By cha8882017 - Adelaide, Australia

Thankyou so much to Luka and Anti from White Shark for the best day cruising off the coast of Split today. We were collected from the marina in front of our hotel straight after breakfast and taken out to the Islands and the green cave which was an absolute highlight. Their knowledge of the area and friendly attitude made for a really enjoyable day that I would recommend to anyone coming here ! The boat was great and very comfortable too.

Church of St. Mary of Snow

The church is the most luxurious example of late Baroque sacral art heritage in Moslavina. The oldest record of the church building dates from 1729. Visitors will be welcomed by one of the most beautiful baroque sacral interiors, the walls and ceilings adorned by rich stucco and frescoes and a dominating magnificent wooden altar. This baroque church is visited during major Concerts of classical music. There, art and music forms are harmoniously and very acoustically blended.

Wooden houses

Reviewed By sc3traveller - Canada/UK

Looking for something completely different from the sunny Dalamatian coast with all the Beaches and night life? Try interior Croatian towns like Sisak and neighbouring villages of Cigoc & Kratecko. Here there is a really beautiful architectural style of wooden houses. Some of them are in need of repair but they are beautiful all the same.
If you head towards Cigoc and the Lonjsko Polje Park you will find more of these traditional wooden houses - as well as - loads of (very big!) storks which come to nest on the village's rooftops. The storks tend to return to the village in the spring so it is a good time of year to visit. We arrived in early April and didn't see any tourists which was fab. I would say we saw about 10 storks but if you come in May/June more storks will have returned.
A great little place to walk around and take photos. There are some small traditional restaurants in the Lonjsko Polje Park (usually attached to a B&B) but none of them were serving food in April so we had to drive back to Sisak to eat.
If you arrive in the Spring be mindful of flood warnings. Sections of the road to the Park were flooded and diversions were in place.

Jadrolinija Ferry

Reviewed By MK_in_VT - Burlington, Vermont

We were exhausted walking around any number of cities in Croatia during a bike trip; we took the local ferry , Jadrolinija, to the Islands and back. Most trips are in the 40-60 minute range, the Ferries have quite nice coffee lounges (by American standards) where you can enjoy delicious espresso and lattes, and the larger Ferries even bake fresh pastries right on board. TV and free wifi--it is almost like a little pleasure cruise. Much fun and wonderful views of the Islands to boot.
