National park Plitvice Lakes is considered one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Plitvice Lakes make wonderful blend of oak Forests, meadows, rocks and lakes. You can explore them by walking along the lakes, by electric train or electric boat.
Founded in 1949, Plitvice Lakes National Park is the largest national park in Croatia and one of the oldest. It is located in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The park extends 296 square kilometres and is world-famous for its lakes, Waterfalls, and cascades which descend 133 metres over a distance of about eight kilometres. The lakes are also renowned for their turquoise colour. Water entering the lakes starts at the confluence of the Bijela Rijeka and the Crna Rijeka. Water exiting the lowest lake forms the Korana River. It takes upwards of six hours to explore the park’s 16 lakes (12 upper and four lower) on foot (you can shave off two hours by leveraging the park's free boats and buses [departing every 30 minutes from April to October]). Kozjak is the park’s largest lake. Veliki Slap, a waterfall within the park, is the tallest in Croatia at 78 metres! Plitvice Lakes National Park is heavily forested with mostly beech, spruce, and fir trees. It is also home to bears, wolves, butterflies, lizards, eagles, trout, owls, and lynxes. Plitvice Lakes National Park is UNESCO World Heritage site. Approximately one million people visit the park each year. Entrance costs €24 for adults during the peak season. It is open from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Swimming is not permitted in any of the lakes.

We took around 2 hours with our many photo stops, and it is worth every second. The views are spectacular and the history amazing.
Approximately 1.9km in total (excluding side detours up towers) it can be walked in one continuous loop so you can start and finish at the same location. We started at the Ploce Gate and this was ideal as when you come off the wall the main port area and city street are just at the base.

Our family farm is located in the gentle hills above the town of Vodnjan. You can book an educational tour with us to our olive grove and enjoy the beautiful views over the Brijuni Islands while learning all about the production of world class olive oil in Istria. Tour booking can be done by email, phone or best to come and visit our shop in the center of Vodnjan where you can enjoy a free tasting of our full range of our 5 different oils. The address of our shop is on the main street in Vodnjan, Trgovacka 40, (directly opposite the post office). We very much look forward to meeting you and sharing a wonderful olive oil experience with you. Paul O'Grady.
I had an oil shop visit and olive groove tour here with a group of 13 Americans. We loved the surroundings, and all products we tried, including several varieties of oil, accompanied with delicious snacks, local wine and chocolate. Paul took us on the tour through Sta. Margherita groove. It was professional and interesting, discovering many facts about olives and all the process and hard work that stays behind the perfect drop of oil. I would suggest to everyone interesting in delicious oil to make also the groove tour, as this brings you to a new level of experience, realizing how personal this is, every olive has been hand-picked and taken care of on the top level possible!

Fantastic place to watch grownups and children alike get so close to the birds of Prey.
With eyes that can spot a mouse at over 8 km Mordikai the Huge Eagle Owl looks right thru you with those enormous orange eyes. then next minute he is nestling into your granddaughters neck so gently like a puppy.. Super educational fun filled humorous description of all the birds and watching them hunt and fly. One of those places you go to and say that was fantastic where do I go to pay as it was so worth it.Lovely grounds bar and cafe and also knowing your money is going to enable injured birds of prey to be nursed back to health and then returned to the wild when recovered.. A very rewarding way of giving to charity and getting something back yourself

...because of the ancient stone work, this charming Old Town is 10 degrees F hotter than any place within a mile away. Cobblestones have been tread upon for centuries which gives you an opportunity to slip and fall down on the steep, slippery streets. Caution.

Keeping in mind that this museaum features a single exibit, I am both pleasently surprised and fairly excited to have visited the place! Very modern, clean, great design and feel about the place. Not to mention, the statue of Apoksiomen was marvelous.
Not cheap for Croatian museaum, but well worth it.

Visited here on a lovely October day. The old town is spectacular- very Italian, as you walk along the streets you keep seeing unusual sights and down through the narrow lanes to views of the stunning Adriatic. It was busy when we were there but I expect it would be even busier at the height of summer. One thing we didn’t expect was that the way it was built provided a certain amount of air conditioning and it was pleasantly cool inside the walls.

It's a 100 something old, from the times of the last austrian emperor, seafront walkway from Volosko to Lovran. It takes about 3 hours of high paced walk one way. Now in january is quite windy and the waves chrash below it, but it' not crowded like in summertime. Beautiful.

This is an incredibly relaxing place - there is something about the place that makes you just instantly chill. Lined with shops and restaurants of all descriptions with a few churches and museums thrown in for good measure, the town offers something for everyone.
