What was once a somewhat obscure destination has now become one of the most visited destinations in all of Eastern Europe.
A Land of Sun and Sea
Croatia is the perfect destination to visit during the summer months. From stunning natural parks, through beautiful rocky beaches, to lakes, and rivers, this country truly has it all.
For the young and adventurous, there's even an entire week known as “The Yacht Week”, which is dedicated to hosting groups of friends from around the world who rent yachts and party at sea every night until the sun comes up.
Moreover, for those seeking adrenaline-fueled activities, there are plenty of destinations within the country where you can go hiking, zip-lining, mountaineering and so much more.
Diverse yet Unique
Due to the fact that Croatia is quite a culturally diverse destination, Croatian cuisine can really vary by location.
In the coastal region, you'll find the majority of restaurants serving up a wide variety of exquisite seafood dishes using freshly caught fish.
In central Croatia, you’ll find a culinary style closer to that of central Europe. The gastronomy in this region is focused around meats and intense, spicy, flavours.
In Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, you’ll find hundreds of cafes and restaurants where the coffee is the main focus. So it's time to take a break, relax and people watch.
World Famous Cultural Sites
It's not a secret that many of the magnificent cities and towns of Croatia will feel familiar when travelling through them as they have been promoted by the famous TV series known as "Game of Thrones". One prime example of this is the city of Dubrovnik which is a gorgeous and historic coastal city whose walls and architecture will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time.
You can also experience authentic Roman ruins in the Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you’ll find dozens of shops and restaurants situated right in between the ancient Roman architecture or you can choose to visit one of the best-preserved amphitheatres in the world where many events and music concerts take place. If you visit Dubrovnik during the month of July, it's recommended that you attend the annual film festival which takes place in the amphitheatre.
Croatia isn't known for smooth and sandy beaches but for its endless coastlines filled with pebbled and surreal pristine water. Croatian beaches are famous for hosting hundreds of events throughout the year so expect to see popular locations, especially during the peak summer season where tourists and locals band together to host the best parties in the region.
