The 1,500 km route will take in some stunning sights around Croatia, including 5 islands and 6 National Parks with plenty of attractions on the route officially called “Green electric route” that offers charging stations that are, in cooperation with partners, set on the most significant locations.
The route, which has been carefully selected to showcase Croatia as a destination, sees competitors setting off from Rovinj in Istria and going through Vodnjan, Vrsar, Buzet, Cres, Lošinj, Krk, Pag, Zadar (The Greeting to the Sun and Sea Organ), Smiljan (birthplace of Nikola Tesla), Plitvička Jezera and finishing in Zagreb.
