We hear a lot about Croatia. The pristine natural scenery, bountiful paddling opportunities among the islands and inlets of the Adriatic Sea, and we need not mention the beautiful women. But more rare is a glimpse inland, to the mountains and lakes of the region. And who knew it—there’s outstanding paddling to be had there as well.
Here’s a feel-good video if there ever was one, profiling Croatia’s Baćina Lakes (there are seven of them) with a look at the land, water, and yes, beautiful women, that you’ll never get through the windows of a car, or from any road, for that matter. It’s enough to make you want to drop everything you’ve got going, grab your paddleboard and move to Croatia. And actually, we’d recommend that.
