The National Park consists of an extraordinary complex of sixteen emerald-green lakes and pools, which, fed by the Korana River and other smaller streams, allow the waters to flow from one lake to the next forming a spectacular display of waterfalls and cascades. The surrounding mountains and forests are also home to bears, rare birds and other wildlife. We later arrive at the central Dalmatian town of Zadar. Situated on a sheltered peninsula with a picturesque harbour, Zadar’s St. Donat church is the largest Byzantine building in Croatia. Located in the centre of the old Roman Forum next to the church, the 12th century late Romanesque cathedral can be found, both of which bear testimony to Zadar’s colourful past.
