National Park Brijuni

Brijuni National Park is the only one in Istria. One but worth it, we would say because it is one of the most beautiful ones. The Brijuni Oasis National Park is a magnificent harmony of man, plant and animal life. There are about 250 bird species, numerous other animals and more than 700 species of plants on the island. In addition to the specific fauna that has been created by burial of the forests and their conversion to the spacious meadows, there is also a flora that has had a major influence on the human factor that the animal world has enriched with many imported species that were not originally in this habitat. It can be said that the Brijuni represent the harmony of nature and man's influence on it. In addition to the enchanting nature, the Brijuni are not lagging behind in the cultural and historical aspect, which makes them the 3rd most visited national park in Croatia. Some places you can not miss are the lookout tower in Cipro, the cupola of the Kupelwieser family, and numerous stone quarries, such as the Kochov or Čufar quarry. Numerous archaeological sites dating from the first neolithic settlement in the bay of Solin have been recorded until modern times when large estates with luxurious villas are being formed.

Today, Brijuni has developed a tourist destination, so its guests have to offer numerous facilities. If you are an animal enthusiast, we recommend that you visit the safari park in the northern part of the Great Brijuni, which contains many species of animals that are not specific to this location. Within this park is an ethnographic park that represents a traditionally Istrian farm. The animal world on the islands, especially on the Great Brijuni, beside indigenous animals, is also enriched with numerous species introduced thanks to good climate acclimatized well in the national park.

Many guests visit the park for hiking, and it is possible in several directions. If you want true mountaineering experience, you can start your journey from the direction of the National Park Management Board in White Vodica, from the direction of Gornji Jelenja or from the direction of Platka.

To visit Risnjak for a few days, you can choose accommodation in one of the mountain houses. The houses are located within the park, and are built according to the location surrounding them.

Although the park is less crowded than other Croatian parks, you still have to book a reservation in advance, as the free bed is always requested.
