Croatian part of the Dinarides (Northern Dinarides) offers ideal conditions for exploring because they are relatively easily accessible and rich with varied and interesting phenomenons. Although the size and height of  Croatian mountains are behind many European countries. But the richness of diversity in a relatively small area deserves the title of one of the most interesting…especially on 2 wheels.
