Photos from Croatia (Istria, Losinj island, Plitvice)

Istria is a peninsula in the Adriatic sea where many towns and villages also have an Italian name, as well as the Croatian name. A ferry connects to the Island of Cres, to the East, which itself is linked by a bridge to the beautiful island of Losinj.
