Unesco World Heritage Sites
Eight of Croatia's 10 cultural and historical sites made the Unesco World Heritage Sites list. The sites include The Euphrasian Basilica in Porec, St. James Cathedral in Sibenik, old town of Trogir, Diocletian Palace in Split, Dubrovnik old town, Stari grad planes on the island of Hvar, Plitvice Lakes, the Venetian Works of Defence in Zadar and Sibenik, Stećci Medieval Tombstone Graveyards in Cista Provo and Konavle, and Beech Forests in national parks Paklenica and Northern Velebit.
Due to Croatia geographical location, topographic and climate—in terms of biodiversity—Croatia is one of the richest countries in Europe. The nature here is quite diverse: from the Adriatic sea, to high-rising mountains, to plains of Slavonia, and rolling hills of Istria and Zagorje.
Croatia has 8 national parks, 10 nature parks, and 2 reserves. Nearly 10% of the country is protected. The national parks of Kornati, Brijuni, and Mljet are located on the islands and characterized by rich marine life. The Risnjak, Northern Velebit, and Paklenica national parks cover mountainous areas. The Plitvice Lakes—which is Croatia's most visited national park—as well as Krka national park, are both famed for its lakes, streams, rapids, and waterfalls.
