Untouched coastline of crystal clear waters, over ten thousand islands with hidden bays and stunning beaches, a rich cultural & historical heritage with many UNESCO sites to explore, breathtaking landscapes … Croatia is a paradise that will fill your heart.
Croatia benefits from a rich cultural heritage reflected in its many museums, palaces, churches and cities, where even a short walk turns into a magical journey through history. Only a few years ago Croatia was a fairly unknown and distance country, but now it is a place you really must visit. In our opinion some of the most important sites and areas not to be missed are:
- Monumental Palace of Diocletian in Split, one of the largest Roman ruins in the world
- Basilica of Euphrasius in Poreč, decorated with spectacular mosaics
- Cathedral of Saint James in Sibenik, architectural jewel of the Dalmatian Coast
- Dubrovnik, the most beautiful Croatian city , a veritable open-air museum
- Plitvice Lakes National Park, a natural paradise of unparalleled beauty
- Stari Grand Plain on the island of Hvar, best preserved Ancient Greek landscape
- Historic town of Trogir, with its irresistible charm of picturesque streets and stone facades
- Zagreb, the capital city at the very heart of Europe
- Pula, a museum city of the Roman Empire
A land of a thousand islands and magnificent national parks
In Croatia the colors of the sunny Mediterranean blend harmoniously with the calm and fresh atmosphere of mountains and plains. A country of magnificent natural heritage offering landscapes that are unique in a relatively small area. With eight national parks, four on the mainland (Risnjak, Paklenica, Plitvice Lakes and Northern Velebit) and four in the coastal regions (Kornati, Mljet, Brijuni and waterfalls of Krka), Croatia is a paradise for nature lovers. Its main asset it its diverse coastline, with 1244 islands, only 50 of which are currently inhabited.
Croatia is not just about historical sites & sunbathing, there are many adventures to be had too.
Countless outdoor activities, allowing you to enjoy the magnificent countryside. Strings of islands along the jagged coastline provide a perfect destination for boating, swimming, kayaking & diving. Trekking and climbing in the parks of Risnjak & Paklenica. Windsurfing in Brač, rafting on the Cetina, cycling or lounging around in cafes.
Then to end each perfect day, once you have had your fill of fresh air and historical sites, enjoy some local cuisine, which has over time been influenced by many great cultures such as the Italians, Turkish & Hungarians plus a few others. Seafood, great wines & cheeses are a must! We will be adding an article dedicated to “what to eat in Croatia” soon.
