As the name says, route mainly passing the continental part of the Croatia, and part of the route leads to the northern neighbours in Slovenia. On this route you can visit Plitvice Lakes National Park and National Park North Velebit, and in Slovenia their famous Postojna Cave.

Route starts from Split to Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s most popular tourist attraction, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. The lakes are a definite must-see in Croatia. The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species.

After amazing Plitvica Lakes you will driving toward two capital cities Zagreb and Ljubljana Capital of Slovenia. You will notice the difference from South, Middle and North Croatia, everything is different: climate, nature, temperature,... After Ljubljana we recommended to visit Postojna Cave. Postojna Cave is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world's largest karst monuments.

Next point is for nature lover, NP North Velebit. Zavižan is one of the best-known localities in the Northern Velebit National Park. Located at 1594 m above sea level. Easy accessibility, the existence of a hut and other facilities (parking, sanitary facilities, benches, rest areas, etc.) make Zavižan a very good point of departure for mountaineering tours of Velebit. If you climb up one of the mountain paths that lead to the surrounding peaks – lookout points – you will be rewarded by spectacular views of the Kvarner islands and Lika. The scenic vistas provided by the Zavižan peaks are sure to take your breath away. Then is easy ride to Split.

In any case it is the longest route that we suggest, and by our calculations it is a journey of more than 1000 km!
