Croatia have 472 sq km of national park on land and 224 km that compose the Kornati Islands. Risnjak National Park south of Zagreb is the most untouched forested park, partly because the climate at its higher altitudes is somewhat inhospitable - an average temperature of 12.6 C in July. The winters are long and snowy but when spring finally comes in late May or early June, everything blooms at once. The park has been kept deliberately free of tourist facilities, with the idea that only mountain lovers need apply.
