Friends who learned about our plans to visit Croatia were quick to recommend the Plitvice Lakes, easily Croatia's most famous national park.
On an area of only a few km² are 16 of the most beautiful lakes and I don't know how many waterfalls.
Too much to count!
The national park is a lot bigger, but let's be honest, you're only coming for the lakes.
Our tour in Croatia was amazing and so was Split.
It's not as unique as, say, Dubrovnik, which almost seems stuck in medieval times.
While Split has a lot of history (with Diocletian's Palace), it is a modern city and - unlike Dubrovnik - it's not overrun by tourists, although you'll still find a ton of them.
I can barely name 5 Croatian cities, but the most prominent name is definitely Dubrovnik and I'm sure everyone has heard about this Pearl of the Adriatic. So what makes this town with only 40k inhabitants so special? The walled historic center.
