Risnjak National Park

Risnjak National Park is located very close to Rijeka, extends all the way to the Slovenian border. This wide area comprises a whole range of natural phenomena but not one single tourist facility, which makes it ideal for those who seek unspoiled mountain nature which shows is at its best when everything bursts into flower come springtime.

Kornati National Park

Kornati’s cliffs are famous for their extraordinary height – up to 100m above sea level and as much below sea level. The wealth of flora and fauna is considerable, both on land and in the sea.

The striking features of the Kornati landscape are the high cliffs which provide a habitat for the endemic rock vegetation (dubrovačka zečina – Centaurea Ragusina and drvenasta mlječika – a plant form of the Euphorbia family), the relief covered by the rocky pastures of the littoral and with a pronounced stratified geological material.

Brijuni National Park

On these 14 islands just of the west coast of the Istrian peninsula time seems to have stopped still. Thick forests, ancient oak trees, avenues of pines and cypresses, and a 1,600-year-old olive tree – all are a part of its history of nature. Rich woods of holm oak were partially cleared at the end of the 19th century in order to landscape parts of them into a park forest for a once famous and exclusive summer resort, with numerous meadows where today herds of fallow deer, axis deer and moufflon graze.
