Plitvice Lakes Croatia Holidays

Hugely popular UK website Female First has named Croatian national park Plitvice Lakes one of world’s top 17 fairytale places. This national park hosted a record number of visitors in 2012, and many of MedSailors’ sailing holiday guests are making a stop there this year as well.

“Often overlooked, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the best natural landmarks in Eastern Europe. This maze of lakes and waterfalls is something straight out of a fantasy fairy tale, with lush greenery and clear turquoise waters as well as incredibly beautiful scenery.”

With over 16 connected lakes with colours ranging from intense blue to opaque jade green, these mineral rich waters create extraordinary complex and delicate plant formed rock features. Croatia’s road transport is simple to navigate and affordable, and offers the best transport options to include this unforgettable spot in a Croatia holiday.

British Airways also launched ‘hand baggage only’ fares yesterday for short-haul customers flying from Gatwick airport to Dubrovnik. Prices start at £39 one way, and went on sale yesterday on the British Airways website.

The new type of fare is available initially to five destinations in total, making Dubrovnik an even more accessible and popular starting point for many people enjoying a sailing trip on their Croatia holidays.
