Trains make travel possible, connecting smaller cities and towns, such as Zadar for reaching Paklenica. Croatia also boasts an impressive motorway that connects its regions.
The summer is the perfect time to visit Croatia, with a peak season that tends to be less crowded than other similar European destinations. Come in the spring and fall for the scenery and slightly cooler temperatures.
