‘UNESCO-protected heritage’, ‘Croatian National Park’, ‘most popular tourist destination in Croatia’… this full day tour explains why Plitvice Lakes rightfully own each title they get.
Croatia’s most popular national park sits south of the country’s capital of Zagreb. As you cast out from the bustling city landscapes, relax as they grow replaced by rural imagery enveloped in green forests. In one such area, 16 cascading lakes overflow in a spectacular play of over 90 waterfalls, creating the UNESCO-listed natural spot of Plitvice Lakes. Your guide will explain the inspiring works of nature behind the beauty of Plitvice and you will have a chance to tour around the lakes on a bus, a boat and a hike. After enjoying some time on your own, head back to Zagreb inspired by this heavenly corner of the world.
Enjoy a promenade through 1700 years of fascinating history which turned Split from a one man’s palace to the present day bustling city.
The historic core of Split, its stunning Diocletian’s Palace, was originally built as the Roman Emperor’s retirement venue at the turn of the 4th century AD. But when the Slavs ransacked Roman Salona in the 7th century, the entire town fled to the palace, setting foundation for the wondrous city Split is today. Flourishing, creative, and with a distinct Dalmatian spirit, the heart of Split enthralls with sites like its Peristyle, the Golden and Silver Gates, the Cathedral and Jupiter’s Temple. Starting underground, in the Palace Cellars, make your way to the daylight, and witness local living happen as you stroll past.
