Once back in Zadar perhaps visit the famous modern ‘Greeting to the Sun’ and the more ancient St. Here you’ll visit Plitvice Lakes National Park, a misty Eden of endless waterfalls and spectral blue lakes.Fed by the Bijela and Crna (White and Black) Rivers, the waters tumble from a high, tree-lined ridge down through the valley and skirt dense forests of beech, spruce and pine.This jam-packed journey offers lush forest hikes, breathtaking landscapes, medieval architecture and scrumptious food along with a good taste of the ancient Croatian and Slovenian culture. Situated on a small peninsula on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, it's the second largest city in Croatia.Split grew out from Diocletian's Palace and you can almost see it evolving in a multitude of different ways right before your eyes.The karst island of Pag is home to sheep, and a determined group of islanders who wring themselves a living from the barren, rocky landscape.Settled in pre-Roman times, the island has been at the mercy of the shifting fortunes of various Dalmatian rulers, and today reminders of its prosperous salt-mining past are visible around the island.
Enjoy some local food and drinks in a city that’s home to a vibrant café culture.A series of wooden walkways pass over the landscape, ensuring there’s little impact upon the park.16 stunning turquoise lakes, fed by underground springs, are split into the upper and lower lakes.The milk is collected in May, left unpasteurised during fermentation, then rubbed with sea salt and olive oil and left to age anywhere from six months to a year.
Indulge in some of the cheese along with some local wine, followed by lunch. Take a drive inland and travel north to your next base of Grabovac (approximately 2 hours).
Ozjusko pivo is a light beer with a very pleasant taste, just a little bit bitter, with a rich flavour.
