Mountains are Calling and I must Go!
Our country is a speleological El Dorado. Not many countries in the world have so much surface covered in karst. Over fifty per cent of Croatian territory, even seventy per cent if we include the undersea surface area, is made of limestone. Limestone easily dissolves in water. Interaction of water and limestone creates a unique and specific relief with a large number of karst forms. In our country, karst stretches from Istria, over Croatian Littoral, Gorski Kotar, Kordun, Lika and Dalmatia including islands, all through the border with Monte Negro. It is part of Dinaric Kras, called after the representative mountain of the area, the impressive Dinara Mountain, located at the border of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, a typical, limestone dominated mountain. Dinaric Kras extends from Soča, along the Adriatic Sea, all through Albania.
