  • Plitvice Lakes: HRK 110 per person (including train and boot inside the park). Parking HRK 70 per day or HRK 7 per hour. Beautiful park with blue lakes and many waterfalls. Definitely worth a visit. We parked at Parking 1 and walked from lowest lakes to the top. This way you always look up to the waterfalls which is a nicer view than walking the other way. 

  • Imotski Crater Lakes: there are two lakes. The Blue lake has a nice walk to a view point. Entry is for free.
  • Dubrovnik: Very beautiful city. We loved the old city center. 
  • Dubrovnik City Walls: Although expensive (70 HRK per person) a walk over the old city walls is great. Escpecially just before sunset. The views are great and you get a nice glimps on city life behind the walls.
  • Zadar Sea Organ: Nice city to visit. Relax at sea listening to the souds of the sea organ.

  • Camp Z Peter: See waypoints - No luxury but for us so far the best place in Croatia
