This short trip was a great addition to our Croatian experience, since it showed us a completely different side of the country. We saw the amazing Plitice Lakes Park - truly a fairyland of mist, waterfalls, clear lakes, and reflections. I expected an elf to pop out at every corner. Zagreb is a sophisticated capital city that blends the modern and the ancient. Lots of interesting museums too. Our guide, Luci, who lives in Zagreb, was both knowledgeable and gracious. In contrast to the summer weather on the coast, it was chilly and raining in Zagreb, and a couple of us were under-dressed. Luci lent us coats - talk about taking the shirt off your back for others! It really helped. Accommodations and meals were national park quality in the Park, and excellent in Zagreb. I really recommend that since you've made the effort to come all the way to Croatia, that you add on these few extra days -your appreciation and understanding of the country will increase exponentially.

After cruising the Adriatic coast and exploring islands and towns, it was great to turn inland into another landscape and other portions of Croatia's history and legacy. The Tesla Memorial was a highlight!

My husband & I have been on over 20 Road Scholar programs in the past two decades. We enjoyed this one, both the cruise along the Dalmation Coast, and the trip extension to Plitvice Lakes and Zagreb. You can read all about both of them on our blog: http://www.mytripjournal.com/Lois_and_John_Croatia_and_Greece

(5)

If you do a Google search of images for Plitvice Lakes you will get an idea of what there is to see there. However, be aware that to properly see the area you will need to be able to walk continuously for three hours including walking up and down significant hills. Zagreb is a beautiful old city with friendly inhabitants that often speak English. Again, to properly see the city you are going to have to walk for hours at a time.

Adequate information is provided on the website.

A truly life-changing experience! I particularly appreciate how well we were taken care of. Thank you Road Scholar.
