Croatia - moving around the country
Taxi in Croatia is also popular, although it is relatively not expensive. Average boarding fee will cost about two and a half dollars, and at least 1 dollar for every next kilometer. Please note that this excludes the luggage fee. Almost every car has a meter, so you can monitor and calculate the cost of travel. However, prices in cities at the peak of the tourist seasons can rise by two or three times the usual amount. At night (from 10 pm to 5 am), the taxi fare rises by 20%. The same rule applies to movement on holidays and weekends. Please note that hitchhiking in Croatia is not advisable, since locals very rarely express a desire to offer a lift on the road to tourists.
Nature and parks of Croatia
Another unique place is Paklenica National Park situated in the rocky mountains of Northern Dalmatia, not far from Zadar. The park is widely known for its numerous canyons and rocks. This place is popular among fans of rock climbing. The most picturesque canyons are Mala Paklenica and Velika Paklenica. One of the highest and most famous cliffs of the park is Anica Kuk. It enjoys an incredible popularity among tourists. A huge number of people come to climb the peaks of Vigansky Vrch and Sveto Brdo every year. In the karst caves of Paklenica, there was a potential refuge for the Yugoslav government in case of war in the 50s of the 20th century.
