Very nice place, in the afternoon not so many people. But we didn´t manage to reach the mountain hut, what I wanted. Beutiful nature, but you have to be in a good shape to make longer trips.

Ideal for 1 day visit, you find easy tracks as well as more difficult ones. We finished tha day in Konoba Marasovic restaurant. Worth to visit.

Thank you for sharing your impressions. We are sorry for the cave, but from July 1st till September 30th it is open every day. In other periods we don't have so much visitors, so the cave is open three days weekly. Hoping you'll come again!...More

There's no lakes in the park. You can dip into the river or, even better, go for a swim in the sea, which is richt by the entrance.

Thanks, but a taxi for one for that distance is prohibitively expensive. For others, I've now answered my own question. The Zadar tourism office gave me the departing bus schedule to Paklenica Park (Starigrad-paklenica... More
