Sample ImageNP KORNATI
In the central part of croatian Adriatic Sea, about 15 Nm to the west from Sibenik town, 7 Nm to the southwest from Murter, or 15 Nm to the south from Zadar town, there is amazing group of islands named Kornati archipelago. Beauty and singularity of the archipelago moved authorities in 1980 to proclaim a bigger part of that area national park. 

Since then certain modifications of its borders were made, so that nowadays Kornati National Park occupies the area of about 220 km2 (54.000 acres). There are 89 islands, islets and reefs within the area of Kornati National Park (238 km of the coastline), what makes it the most indented group of islands in the Mediterranean. The land part of Kornati National Park covers less than 1/4 of its total area, but the values of its landscapes, the "crowns" (cliffs) on the islands facing the open sea, and interesting relief structures, make this part of Kornati National Park unique. Besides, the Kornati submarine area, whose biocenosis are considered to be the richest in the Adriatic Sea, and also the magnificent geomorphology of the sea bed attracts divers from all over Europe to come and enjoy in unforgettable submarine adventures.


Sample ImageNP KRKA
It was proclaimed a national park in 1985 and is the seventh national park in Croatia. The Krka National Park is located entirely within the territory of Šibnik- Knin County and encompasses an area of 109 square kilometers along the Krka River: two kilometers downriver from Knin to Skradin and the lower part of the Cikola River. 

From the flooded part of the mouth, it is 72.5 kilometers in length, making the Krka the 22nd longest river in Croatia. The source of the Krka River is at the base of the Dinaric Mountains, 3.5 kilometers northeast of the base of Knin and 22 meters below Topoljski Slap, Veliki Buk and Krèiæ Slap, which are noisy cascades in the winter but run dry during the summer. The length of the freshwater section of the river is 49 kilometers and that of the brackish section is 23.5 kilometers. Significant tributaries of the Krka River include Krèiæ, Kosovèica, Orašnica, Butišnica and Èikola with Vrb. With its seven travertine waterfalls and a total drop of 242 meters, the Krka River is a natural and karstic phenomenon.


 
   
Sample Image Paklenica / VelebitT
With its surface area of 96 km2, from the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea to the highest peaks of the Velebit Mountains, Vaganski Vrh (1757 m) and Sveto Brdo (1753 m), Paklenica abounds with numerous natural wonders and phenomena, which is why the entire area was proclaimed a national park in 1949.

And rightfully so, as this region is simple and unusual in its connection between the sea and the mountains, rich in beech and black pine forests,
its deep canyons cut vertically into the Velebit ridge, its karst formations and numerous caves and pits.
