Third Stop: The Una River Source – Vrelo Une
After we’ve seen Una River in the city, and witnessed its power over at the said Waterfalls, we’ve decided to explore the source of that beauty. And that was probably the best decision ever! The source of Una is located at almost 400 meters above the sea level in region Lika, County of Zadar in Croatia under the slopes of Li?ka Plješivica and Stražbenica.Tamara Biljman
How to get there
The closest points to Plitvice are Zagreb, Zadar or Split. We were staying in Zagreb for a couple of days and planned to visit the Plitvice Lakes National Park, Plitvi?ka jezera in Croatian, for one day, and then continue to Zadar.Aina B.
When most people think of Croatia, Zadar is not the first city that comes to mind. However my husband and I have lived spent the last six years traveling Europe and wanted to experience something different than the typical tourist cities we had previously traveled. My husband and I traveled from Frankfurt Hahn to Zadar utilizing Ryanair, a cheap airlines that travels in and around Europe, during the second week of April. Ryanair only flies from Frankfurt to Zadar and back on Monday’s and Friday’s so we spent five days in the city. Ryanair has many restrictions with their air travel and you must follow them in order to fly easily and cheaply around Europe (I will include a future blog on how to travel the best way on Ryanair). The taxi cab that took us from the airport to our hotel took us the long way around and charged us more than double what we were told it would cost to reach the hotel, on the way back we arranged a cab to pick us up who charged us less than we had been told, met us exactly on time, and was very friendly overall. I would suggest researching the best path to the hotel before you leave the airport so you are not taken advantage of if you chose to cab to the hotel when you get in. The hotel is only located about ten minutes from the airport. Zadar uses the currency Kuna which is about 6.63kunas to every one dollar. It is a good exchange rate but the prices still add up to be about the average price for food, drinks, and tours in America. You can pull money out of the many ATMs located in and around the city of Zadar.Brooke Campbell
