Favourite Cities and Hotels in Croatia

Croatia has a tidy, if not remarkable, ensemble of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to enjoy. Most visitors, for example, have some cursory awareness of the Old City of Dubrovnik and Historic Complex of Split, to name two of the first three prestigious UNESCO inscriptions in the country. The other however, Plitvice Lakes National Park, is still the only Natural World Heritage Site in Croatia and a rare repository of gorgeous lakes, waterfalls and caves.

The indomitable feature of the first-rate nature preserve is a network of awesome travertine dams that divide sixteen diminutive lakes. These otherworldly limestone deposits shape-shift at a glacial pace over aeons and produce a dynamic, nonpareil landscape of algae and moss. The resultant bacteria colours the lakes a brilliant, Photoshop-like azure-green. Plitvice Lakes National Park is also a vital haven for wildlife. Indeed, legions of brown bears and wolves patrol the dense forests within the borders of the park and fortunate visitors may even spot the odd badger, wild boar, deer, lynx or fox. Keen bird lovers can reliably detect raptors like owls, hawks, eagles and osprey from the comfort of their Plitvice Lakes National Park camp site. While the integrity of the park’s future was shaky and very much in doubt between 1991 and 1995 - a period of ruinous military conflict and ethnic strife in the Balkans – today, happily, Plitvice Lakes is a beacon in Croatia.
