Another amazing sight to see in Croatia is the Plitvice Lakes National Park.

This outstanding national park is actually the oldest to be found in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia itself.

It is world famous for its cascading lakes, waterfalls and dynamic landscape and is situated within the mountainous border to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The City of Pula is another must see when visiting Croatia.

This city has many surviving ancient Roman buildings, which include its 1st-century amphitheatre,  popularly called the Arena of Pula and is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world.

Another notable and well-preserved ancient Roman structure is the 1st century AD Temple of Rome and Augustus, now in use as a lapidarium to display items of Roman sculpture.
