Nature

Croatia is proud to have one of the most preserved natures and the seas in the Mediterranean. The biggest treasure of Croatia is its eight national parks. Four National Parks are inland and four at the sea and coastline. North Velebit, Risnjak, Paklenica, and Plitvice Lakes are inland. National park Krka is close to Šibenik, Brijuni, Mljet, and the Kornati on the Adriatic sea.

Croatian Adriatic divides into three main sailing regions, North, Middle, and South Adriatic. These regions are divided into subregions: Split – Dalmatia, Dubrovnik – Dalmatia, Zadar – Dalmatia, Kvarner, Istria.

Although these regions are located in a relatively small area and distance, they have their specifics and characteristics.

1244 islands, reefs, rocks remained after the rise of the Adriatic Sea 13 000 BC. Today only 50 are populated. Among the largest islands are Lošinj, Cres, Krk, Rab, Brač, Hvar, Vis, Korčula, Mljet.

You can explore numerous small fisherman villages on the islands and meet the islands’ traditional way of life.
