Croatia - moving around the country
The use of bicycles is pretty much popular in Croatia. You can save considerably by renting them especially since there are special cycling routes in the country. In the absence of bicycle routes, it is also safe to move along motor roads, since Croats have great respect for bicycle riders. Please note that it is possible to travel by plane within the country. Airports can be reached by taxi, by shuttle bus or by bus. In this case, it is worth considering that not every airport terminal is run by city buses. The railway network in the country is not very developed, but it covers the most remote regions. Within the city, you will usually find trains with second class carriages. For longer trips, it is possible to buy a ticket for an express or comfortable first-class train. In which case, it is advisable to buy tickets in advance.

There is also a huge number of natural parks in the country. One of the most famous is the Velebit Park, which features a mountain range of the same name. There are two national parks, North Velebit and Paklenica. The relief of Velebit is represented by high sharp rocks with numerous caves. The length of the deepest is about 1300 meters. In the eastern part of Croatia, the Kopacki Rit Nature Park is located. Most of its territory is covered with swamps and lakes. The forest is home to more than 250 different species of birds, as well as reindeer, wild boars, weasels, sables, leopard cats, and badgers. Those who wish to go fishing on one of the lakes, have to get a permit.
