National Parks in CroatiaHello all,
My girlfriend and I are going to Croatia in July and are having some difficulty finding information on public transport to and from national parks. Ideally, we would like to go from Zagreb to North Velebit (Sjeverni Velebit), from there to Paklenica, and from Paklenica to Plitvice, and then on to Bosnia.
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

1Take a bus from Zagreb to Senj. There are I think only one or two a day but do not be discouraged and ask for the buses which go further from Senj, ie Rab and Pag, and stop in Senj. Try to rent bikes in Senj.
There is a regular bus line from Senj to Krasno. Stay in Krasno and make excursions in the NV park. Examine Youtube for " velebit " . Visit Kuterevo orphan bear refuge near Krasno.
Return to Senj and continue by one of many buses to Starigrad, starting point for Paklenica.

with your plans, I would advise getting a car in Zagreb, visiting Plitvice, spending the night there and then continuing to Otočac and North Velebit. When your finished in NV, carry on on the highway to Paklenica.
Where you go from there will mostly depend on your plans for Bosnia... Back to Zagreb and then a bus to Sarajevo, or some other destination?
