Delnice, which sits on the road between Rijeka and Zagreb, is itself not much to write home about. However, it makes a good base for exploring the mountains of the Gorski kotar region that sits above Kvarner Bay. This is the place to head for hiking trails that swing away from civilization. It's also a convenient stopover if you’re taking the slow route back to Zagreb and your transport home. Take a day or two to swap the brilliant blue domination and ramshackle culture of the coast for the bright green mountains and hearty way of life in Gorski kotar.
