Good to know:
Croatia has eight national parks: Brijuni, Kornati, Krka, Mljet, Paklenica, Plitvice Lakes, Risnjak and North Velebit. Their total area is 994 km²; 759 km² is land and 235 km² is water. The most popular Croatian National Parks are Plitvice Lakes, followed by Krka, Brijuni and Paklenica. The Croatian law on the preservation of nature defines national parks as one of the eight types of protected areas of nature. Another notable category is a nature park, of which there are eleven. Each of the national parks is maintained by a separate institution, overseen and funded by the government ministry of nature conservation and spatial development.
Marking the 10th anniversary of the Zagreb Amateur Radio Society and the 50th anniversary of the Croatian national parks, Zagreb Amateur Radio Society has launched a diploma National Parks. In addition to marking these anniversaries, the goal is to open up these Croatian natural beauties to domestic and foreign radio operators, and encourage them to visit the national parks of Croatia. The diploma includes all Croatian national parks.
