Natural beauties of Dalmatia and islands
You can enrich your stay by going to one of the national parks, nature parks or the islands. We will present some of them.
NP Plitvička jezera
Plitvice Lakes is the most famous national park in Croatia, and are among the most beautiful natural sights in Europe. This Croatian pearl UNESCO has, because of its diversity, included in the list of World Natural Heritage.
The Plitvice Lakes area, declared a national park, is one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe. It is a forested mountain end through which one below the other, sixteen beautiful lakes and lakes of crystal blue-green color. Water filled with many streams and streams are interconnected by sparkling cascades and forest waterfalls. During the millennia the water of these lakes has violated, corroded and solvents of the rocks and rocks they ran.
Precipitation of calcium carbonate from flowing water and the mediation of special types of algae and moss was created today in places of natural barriers of hollow stone types – limestone or travertine.
Continuous deposition of this material grows with waterfalls, drains, canals and cascades. This precipitate is coated with a glossy layer and sculpts fallen tree stones at the bottom of the lake, the shore, and gives it a special sparkling beauty.
In the central part of the Croatian Adriatic, on the outskirts of Sibenik and Zadar islands, there is a separate and many special group of islands named Kornati.
Due to the exceptional landscape beauty, interesting geomorphology, great diversification of the coastline and especially the rich marine ecosystem biocenosis, in 1980, most of the Kornati Aquatics was proclaimed a national park.
Today, NP “Kornati” covers an area of about 220 km2 and includes a total of 89 islands, islets and rocks with approximately 238 km of coastline. Despite this relatively large number of islands, the land part of the park makes less than 1/4 of the total area, while the rest of the marine ecosystem.
The National Park Paklenica covers the area of the torrent streams of Velika and Male Paklenica, their recognizable canyons vertically engraved in the southern slopes of Velebit, and the wider surrounding area. In a relatively small area, there is an abundance of geomorphologic phenomena and shapes, diverse plant and animal worlds, attractive landscapes and untouched nature. Paklenica Canyon, at the same time the main entrance to Paklenica National Park, is the most valuable natural phenomenon and pearl of Velebit. Here you can find a 150km long hiking trail network, which is definitely recommended for nature lovers and hiking in the spring and fall. The trails extend from the sea to the interior of the mountain Velebit and to the tourists and alpinists who climb the trail under the Anić Kuk (714 m) – the largest rocks of Velebit, offers all its magnificence and beauty.
The Krka National Park covers the area along the river Krka, which runs through a deep and vivid canyon 75 km long, forming noisy waterfalls: Bilušić buk, Miljacka, Brljan, Rošnjak, Manojlovački waterfall, Roški slap and the famous Skradinski buk (Krka waterfalls – 46 m ), which is the biggest sedimentary barrier in Europe.
In the Krka National Park there are two cultural and historical monuments: the Franciscan monastery on the island of Visovac and the monastery of Krka. Visovac is located in the office of the extension of Krka, where the green water opened up the karst plateau, creating a harmonious blend of natural and historical heritage. Surrounded by hillsides of milan plain and a beautiful rupe field, which, by the pains of beauty, unite in the shadow of its lake’s mildew, it is a defilement of the storms of historical gaps throughout the centuries. The irresistible, charming rock in the abundance of nature, which for centuries has been transformed by millennia into an island full of trees, colorful flowers, fruits and vegetables, irresistible attracts tourists.
The documents are first mentioned in the 14th century. About 1445, the Franciscans settled on this island, expanded the island and dealt with knowledge and education, built a monastery and a church in 1576, which was restored in the 18th century.
Among the hundreds of islands, 17 are permanent residents that preserve the tradition of “people from the sea”.
They occupy almost 600 square kilometers, big ones like the Long Island, 50 miles long, to those who are walking for half an hour like a park in the island of Oszkak or the Franciscan school.
Pag and Vir are connected by bridges with the mainland, Ugljan, and Pašman to each other.
It is characterized by its image and diversity, of 150 metric cliffs on Long Island, caused by the impact of the waves on the tiny kilometer bays.
Preserve the remembrances of humanity from ancient times, through Roman villa rustics, medieval mansions of the nobility and the clergy to today’s “people from the sea”.
