The Northern Velebit National Park is its most attractive part, and it is known for the Hajdučki and Rožanski Kukovi peaks, as well as for the Velebit botanical garden.
The centre of the National Park is located in Krasno, one of the great Marian sanctuaries, situated at an altitude of 714 metres.
Located in the western region of the island of Mljet, the most richly wooded island in the Adriatic, the park is renowned for its deep bays, large lake and small lake, lush and diverse Mediterranean vegetation and rich cultural heritage, with a twelfth-century Benedictine Monastery on the island in the large lake.
This National Park has found its place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, blessed as it is with the special natural beauty of a string of lakes and waterfalls.
As the historical heart of the island of the same name, the city of Korčula is one of the best preserved medieval towns on the Mediterranean.
The island of Visovac with its Franciscan church and monastery is also worth visiting.
The small medieval town of Cavtat is both the tourist and cultural centre of Konavle.
Among the many significant cultural sites are the Mausoleum of the Račić family, the birthplace of Vlaho Bukovac, the Ducal Palace and the Sokol Fortress.
Nikola Tesla, scientist and inventor in the field of electricity, was born and spent his youth there.
The modern museum, housed in his birthplace, and the nearby theme park preserve the memories of Tesla’s scientific path.
