Map of Plitvice Region
It is rare in the world that so many attractive localities are
found in such close proximity to each other as is the case in Croatia. Situated in central
Croatia, Zagreb is the ideal point from which to quickly reach all of those localities. A
less than a two-hour drive south of Zagreb will take you to Lika-Senj County, where the
famous Plitvice Lakes, one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world, are
situated. Travelling southwest will take you to Gorski kotar or the Croatian
Switzerland. A mere fifty kilometers further and you are on the Adriatic, an
impressively blue, clean and crystal clear sea that boasts more than a thousand islands.
