As the mountain chain Velebit ends the Dalmatian coastline begins. With some of the most beautiful islands in Croatia it’s the jewel of the Adriatic Sea. There are over 300 islands for you to explore. Culturally and historically rich towns such as Zadar and Šibenik are a must see. Natural surroundings are breathtaking and well worth the visit, there are several national parks in the area available with short field trips, so be sure to find some time between your tennis matches to visit them.
Autochthonous gourmand delicacies, cultural monuments, a variety of excursion programs and numerous tourist activities that the city offers are all at your disposal. Zadar is a city monument, surrounded by historical ramparts, a treasury of the archaeological and monumental riches of ancient and medieval times. When tired try to take a break in any of the cosy restaurants, pastry shops or coffee shops.
Šibenik is in the central part of the Croatian Adriatic Coast, in the picturesque and indented bay where the Krka River, one of the most beautiful karst rivers in Croatia enters the sea. Šibenik and Knin County has 242 islands, islets and above-sea reefs. Most of this archipelago is in the north-western part of Šibenik’s waters and is especially indented, bare and sparsely inhabited. The area of Šibenik has only 10 island settlements. The most numerous group of islands are the Kornati, widely known for their bizarre shapes and splendid natural beauties.
Few places in the Mediterranean concentrate so much of what the modern tourist needs for complete relaxation in such a relatively small area, as do the Kornati Islands. The Kornati are the densest island group in the Adriatic, with small fields, hidden oases of large-crowned pines and olives, quiet and sheltered bays that are ideal for escaping the noise and worry of civilization. The cultural traces of the past, scattered all over the rocks of this now so peaceful stone desert, are proof of permanent and restless life in this region.
Enjoy walking over the bridges that follow the course of the waterfalls, and viewing the wealth of flora and fauna. The park can be toured from the water, by road or on foot. The waterfalls are easily accessed and attractive for all true nature lovers, those interested in national customs and all those looking to enjoy the hospitality and culture offered here.
