Visitor Information

Paklenica information can be had at the Starigrad tourism office at Trg Tome Marasovica 1 (tel. 023/369-255; www.rivijera-paklenica.hr), which is open from June 6 to September 15. Nin's tourist office is at Trg Brace Radica 3 (tel. 023/265-247; www.nin.hr). The tourist office can provide maps, brochures, and information about Paklenica and private accommodations in the area.

Getting There

Paklenica is a little less than 3 hours from Zagreb on the Zagreb-Split highway. Exit at a sign for the park before you get to Zadar and continue on the old road that skirts the sea. You'll pass lots of SOBE signs before you get to Stari grad; a sign leading to the park turns into a one-lane road that appears to go through a residential area. The road leads to park reception, where you can leave your car, buy a ticket, fill your water bottle, and enter the park on foot. There is no direct public transportation to the park.

Nin is easy to get to by car or bus. Buses run between Zadar and Nin frequently; and the 16km (10-mile) ride takes less than half an hour.

Getting Around

Paklenica is all about walking and climbing. No motorized vehicles are allowed inside the park boundaries, though they do stop at Starigrad, a little over a mile away. Nin is very compact and semi-pedestrianized, and walking is necessary to take in the sights.
