An expansive national park covering an area of 63.5 square kilometers. We've yet to go, but our friends the Oranginas walking group from the Netherlands have been and say:

"A round-walk along the borders of the National Park Risjnak. The NP is a part of the Gorski Gotar (mountain district). People say that brown bear and lynx still live here, but we didn't see them. What we saw was: luxurious silence, slanting hills, great views along the Kupa-river."

THANK YOU ORANGINAS! See their full thoughts here.
