Top 5 Things To Impress You As You Travel In Croatia
If travel in Croatia isn’t on your bucket list yet, give it another chance. Croatia is definitely worth a visit. It is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, with millions of visitors per year. A quick search on the all-knowing internet would provide you with enough information to grasp the thought process of travelers to Croatia.
“Sun? Sea? Good food? Amazing nature? Wonderful people? Safe to travel? Honey, pack our bags!”
Of course, the current situation might involve some extra steps in your decision-making process but the result is always the same. You will decide to travel in Croatia. That’s why we would like to tell you about our top 5 things that might impress you during your stay here.
The Climate in Croatia
Where should we start? Our climate is spectacular and with Croatia being one of Europe’s sunniest spots, be sure that you can leave your hat on. If you’re anywhere in Europe, we’re quite close to you then – you can reach us in under 4h from anywhere in the continent. Yes, it is a bit different with the rest of the world, but it’s totally worth it – ask your friends.
The History in Croatia
We have Roman ruins, ancient columns, temples and walls in the city of Split. Not to mention other cities where other cultures and nations have left their trace. In the city of Pula you can find one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world, dating back to the first century. As you travel in Croatia, you feel like you’re traveling through history as well.
The Islands in Croatia
Beaches out of this world, but they’re right here. Ever heard of Zlatni Rat beach on Brač island? You must have. Take into consideration that we have over 1200 islands along our coastline, and not to begin with the mainland. Yes, there will be a snorkeling spot for you, rest assured. When choosing an island to visit in Croatia, the competition can be fierce and we know it. But as soon as you decide on your time of the year and travel style, it will be easier for you to choose your favorite Croatian island. If it’s your first time travel in Croatia, you can go with the classics like Hvar island. If this is your second time visiting, or you just need more out of your first visit, then we recommend the less known islands like Rab island.
The Natural Beauty in Croatia
National parks in Croatia? How many would you like? Besides the Plitvice lakes, as our most visited national park, one can also enjoy Mother Nature’s fine art in many other national parks. Krka waterfall is a must-see attraction, but please, don’t forget our other national parks – Mljet, Paklenica, Kornati, Brijuni, Risnjak and Sjeverni Velebit.
The Capital of Croatia
And of course – always go for the capital. Zagreb. Don’t let it be just a transit city, as it deserves so much more. Although it feels like it’s light years away from the beaches, Zagreb still has that “something”. The architecture, the culture, the tree-lined avenues where you can see a whole new world. It is living in its own pace, very different from the one you had the opportunity of seeing on Mljet island.
For the other type of “wild-ones” – summer festivals. We have over 150 festivals happening during the year and some of them are being compared to the world’s elite festivals. Dubrovnik Summer Festival, INmusic, Ultra Europe and various film festivals. Or you can make a festival of your own in some of our party destinations like Hvar town.
We almost forgot the food. Oh, the food! Freshly caught fish, octopus salad, olive oil, truffles, oysters, homemade pasta and so many traditional recipes. A whole new festival for your stomachs.
Welcome to Croatia.
