This is one of the most attractive tourist regions in Croatia, in a central position on the Adriatic coast. Here the coastline is broken up and includes a large number of islands as well as areas of natural beauty such as the Kornates islands, the Telscica nature park and more than 300 islands in the Zadar archipelago. The Kornates islands make up the biggest archipelago in the Mediterranean. It is a “labyrinth” of islands offering peace and quiet and unspoiled countryside. Situated near the town of Zadar are the Paklenica Nature Park and the impressive Velebit mountains, which are the highest in Croatia. The main attraction at the park are the two high gorges which descend down to the sea and have a cliff face measuring 400 m which, due to its beauty and sheer rock face, is one of the most well known climbing challenges for European rock climbers.
