More about this tour

A weekend-trip from Zagreb to the most popular national park Plitvice Lakes in Croatia and a beautiful ancient town of Zadar.

Plitvice Lakes is the oldest and largest national park in the Republic of Croatia. The park is situated in the mountainous region of Croatia, between the Mala Kapela mountain range and the Lička Plješivica mountain range. With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers. The lake system is comprised of 16 big and several smaller lakes, cascading one into the other. Lakes were internationally recognized in 1979 with their inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Zadar is an ancient city on the Adriatic Coast in Croatia, called Iadera in the Roman Empire period. Today it is famous for its Roman remains, Middle Age churches, modern architecture constructions like Sea Organ or Greeting to the Sun and long beaches. The Sea Organ is a unique construction made of concrete, making unusual sounds of organ instrument with natural se waves. You can sit there for hours and enjoy this interesting spot. The Greeting to the Sun is a large floor installation collecting sun rays during the days and creating amazing lights in the dark of night. Most of all, Zadar is famous for beautiful sunsets. As Hitchcock said when he visited Zadar “... nowhere in the world can a person witness a more beautiful sunset than in Zadar.”

Hostel Three Corners and Four Corners is located near the old town of Zadar, 10min walk from the main central square (Rafael Levakovic Street 1). The group will be accomodated in 4-bed and 8-bed rooms, with spacious bathrooms on every floor.

The Boat Party Sunset Session will be held on the TRN boat, with meal and drink included. Music will be provided while cruising around the Zadar peninsula for the best sunset view!
