Kraljevica to Brod na Kupi
The next leg of the journey runs along the coast of Kvarner Gulf past the hilly region of Gorski Kotar to the village of Brod na Kupi along the Croatian-Slovenian border. This route clearly shows the coastal karst slowly transitioning into high karst. The roads are mostly paved with a few sections of gravel and dirt roads.
Quite a few meters of altitude lie ahead before you can relax in the Kolpa River. Luckily, there are a number of places along the way where you can rest up and taste local culinary delights. The Brod na Kupi Interpretation Center features the natural and cultural heritage of high karst. The exhibition presents the special features of this karst type from its formation up to the present day in terms of geomorphology, climatology, and biodiversity.
