​The US publishing house Fodor's Travel has listed Croatian national parks in their Go 2019 list , the Croatian National Tourism Boards (HTZ) said in a press release Wednesday. Fodor's Travel is one of the world's leading publishers of English language travel and tourism information and the first relatively professional producer of travel guidebooks. The Go 2019 list includes 52 destinations "that inspire us to get going in 2019," including national parks in Croatia. "These photogenic National Parks give you eight more reasons to put Croatia on your 2019 travel list," Fodor's said.

"The pebbled beaches lining Croatia’s shorelines are wonderful but heavy with the traffic of cruise passengers and visitors from around the world. Heading inland doesn’t mean straying from the turquoise waters that have lured so many to this Eastern European jewel in recent years, but it does mean swapping the Adriatic for Croatia’s lesser-known but equally azure rivers, lakes, and waterfalls that flow through its pristine National Parks," according to Fodor's.

"The parks -- eight in total -- are a photographer’s dream. The 16 interconnected lakes and soaring waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park have earned it a spot as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Manita Pec Cave in Paklenica National Park is akin to exploring another world. Get active swimming in the waterfalls at Krka National Park, fly fishing at Risnjak National Park, or kayaking to a 12th-century Benedictine monastery-turned-café on an island in Mljet National Park.

"Sjeverni Velebit National Park offers the chance for a late night stargazing hike, and the 140 small islands of Kornati Islands National Park are perfect for a weekend sailing or snorkeling trip. More than 200 dinosaur footprints were found at Brijuni National Park, and today you can walk alongside these giant reminders of the planet’s past," Fodor's Travel said.
