“These photogenic National Parks give you eight more reasons to put Croatia on your 2019 travel list,” writes Fodor about Croatia’s National Parks. 

One of the world’s leading publishers of English travel guides and tourism information, American Fodor’s Travel, published their popular ‘Go List’ which includes a list of highly suggested destinations to visit in 2019. The national parks of Croatia have been featured on this prestigious travel list, reports Dalmacija Danas on November 14, 2018. 

“The pebbled beaches lining Croatia’s shorelines are wonderful but heavy with the traffic of cruise passengers and visitors from around the world. Heading inland doesn’t mean straying from the turquoise waters that have lured so many to this Eastern European jewel in recent years, but it does mean swapping the Adriatic for Croatia’s lesser-known but equally azure rivers, lakes, and waterfalls that flow through its pristine National Parks. The parks—eight in total—are a photographer’s dream. The 16 interconnected lakes and soaring waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park have earned it a spot as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Manita Pec Cave in Paklenica National Park is akin to exploring another world. Get active swimming in the waterfalls at Krka National Park, fly fishing at Risnjak National Park, or kayaking to a 12th-century Benedictine monastery-turned-café on an island in Mljet National Park. Sjeverni Velebit National Park offers the chance for a late night stargazing hike, and the 140 small islands of Kornati Islands National Park are perfect for a weekend sailing or snorkeling trip. More than 200 dinosaur footprints were found at Brijuni National Park, and today you can walk alongside these giant reminders of the planet’s past,” writes Kristy Alpert for Fodor, before recommending places to stay, insider tips, and a good book to read on your trip. 

“The inclusion of Croatia’s national parks on this prestigious list is even more confirmation of the exceptional natural wealth of our country, which is precisely well-recognized in the world in this segment. Our preserved and untouched nature attracts many tourists, and I am confident that after the publication of this list, Croatia will take on an even more solid position on the world tourism map, and especially among those traveling enthusiasts who prefer to visit unique natural sites,” said the Croatian National Tourist Board director Kristjan Staničić.

Fodor’s editors publish a list of destinations they recommend to their many readers and companions each year. All destinations from the list will be promoted through the published article available here.
