In your hands you are holding the sixth edition of The Plitvice Times Magazine and this time it was not easy to continue our story.
As you have noticed, the sixth issue of the magazine did not come out in January, but in March 2020. The reason is this year`s reorganization – we will present our stories four times as well but with the longest issues being the summer issue in May and the winter issue in November. Also, one of the news is the magazine`s subscription. You will find more about that inside, so let’s start to talk about the Spring 2020 edition.
This issue is special in many ways, but certainly the most important is that we`ve decided not to delay it although the entire market is affected by the current Coronavirus situation and many printed travel publications are canceled. We have estimated that our hard work over the past few months can be relevant even in these special circumstances. Our readers and our advertisers deserve that we give our best today. The Coronavirus has impacted the tourist market, but we`re also coming out in the digital edition so we will use our digital platform to bring new interesting tourist stories to a wide audience that will hopefully soon be able to travel.
The issue`s exclusive article is the story about truffles from Lika. Although the Croatian region of Istria is best known for its truffles, the Lika region also has truffles and truffle hunters. We found one in the vicinity of Gospić, and did a great story with Ivan and his cute dogs. Also, you can find out where to buy truffle cheese in Lika.
There are many tips and tricks, recommendations of the cultural sights in Lika-Senj County, and interesting stories from the past and present: the one about Nikola Tesla monument, about modern Winnetou, hydropower plant „Munjara“ and the love story of Katarina and Petar.
Find out what to do in Novalja and Korenica and learn interesting facts about the Lika-Senj County cheese road. One story also comes from the magnificent rock formation Tulove Grede.
Read our advices if you are traveling during the Coronavirus, that is the most important topic now.
Enjoy the magazine and stay healthy!
