The old walls of Dubrovnik have gained much popularity since they were used as the main film location depicting the fictional world of King’s Landing from the popular television series Game of Thrones. But look beyond those stately castle walls of imaginary Westeros – Croatia has always been home to other spectacular sights to offer for those willing to explore a little more. Here are some of our favourite sights in Croatia.
Plitvice Lakes (Plitvička Jezera)
The UNESCO World Heritage Plitvice Lakes National Park, located in the central Lika-Senj County, is the first national park in Croatia and one of its most photographed and visited sights. With 16 cerulean blue lakes, numerous waterfalls and lush green foliage, summer is the most popular time to take in the gorgeous park. Come winter, frozen cascades and snow-covered trees covers the surreal landscape.
The majestic waterfalls of Krka National Park are located in Šibenik-Knin County between Zadar and Split. The best way to appreciate the falls is to get in the water at Skradinski buk(town) where you can swim quite close to the thundering cascades.
