Croatia Puts All Its Parks In One Place!

Croatia Online Mallard in Krka

Metaphorically speaking of course, so this mallard in Krka National Park has no need to scratch its head!

Croatia is finally giving its enormous diversity and abundance of beautiful unspoilt habitats the attention it deserves and has consolidated all the various information onto one website.

It splits its parks between National Parks and Nature Parks, the former normally afforded a higher level of protection and perhaps a little more “spectacular”

Looking at the map we’ve just a couple left to do but so far the highlights are Kornati, Učka, Kopački rit and Krka. Here are some links to some previous Croatia Online “park postings”:

Literally, the Parks of Croatia, you can find the English language version of the new website here - Parks of Croatia Homepage

Croatia Online Features on Total Croatia News

It seems Croatia Online has the dubious distinction of being one of the oldest English Language blogs on Croatia, having achieved its 10th anniversary at the beginning of the year.

In recognition of this magnificent achievement our editor, Jane Cody, was interviewed by Paul Bradbury of Total Croatia News – one of our favourite websites.

Jane made full use of this unique opportunity, and some very meaty questions from Paul, to reflect on a number of major and hopefully interesting issues – Croatia’s progress in tourism, particularly nautical tourism, the Croatian blogging scene and some favourite blog posts, to name but a few.

So make a cup of tea, put your feet up and see what she has to say on life in the universe as it applies to Croatia!

Here’s the link  Total Croatia News - Bloggers Of Croatia: Jane Cody and many thanks to Paul for his insightful questions and affording us the space we needed to answer them properly.

Today’s photo is a Croatia Online favourite – a fireplane coming into Kaštela Bay to top up its tanks with water.
