4 Things Not To Miss While Visiting Croatia

Croatia is quickly becoming one of the hottest countries to visit – and for good reason. The delightful climate, wonderful natural landscapes and picturesque cities make for a wonderful vacation, no matter what your expectations are. There are many attractions in sunny Croatia, but here are the ones you absolutely don’t want to miss.

Plitvice Park

We’ve written about Plitvice Park before, but I just feel like it’s not enough! Located in the heart of Croatia, Plitvice is one of  the largest and oldest parks in Europe – but that just doesn’t tell the full story. Known as one of the most beautiful natural sights on the Old Continent, the park features a system of 16 interlinked lakes, surrounded by a huge green forest.

The park is quite easily accessible and typically has moderate prices, but for most of the summer (and even the early Autumn), the entire area is very crowded. It’s not uncommon to find yourself in a group of tens of people, which can be a bit annoying, but it’s understandable considering how awesome the landscapes really are. If you do find yourself surrounded by a big group, a good tip is to  walk one of the very well established routes in reverse. It may be a bit more difficult, but you likely won’t see another human for hours.

Swimming is of course not allowed anywhere in the park, but there are plenty of paths you can choose from – go exploring, admire the surroundings and just enjoy the experience to the fullest!

Dubrovnik

Nicknamed the Pearl of the Atlantic, Dubrovnik is actually a port city on the Adriatic Sea in the Mediterranean. Historically, the city depended on maritime trade and fishing, but in modern times, it also gains a significant amount of money from tourism.

Dubrovnik is loved for its magnificent beaches, blue waters and splendid history. With stunning architectural detail, many of the buildings in Dubrovnik are a pleasure to look at.

Even though it was besieged by the Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) for seven months and suffered significant damage from shelling, Dubrovnik is among the 10 best preserved medieval walled cities in the world according to CNNGo.

There is no train to Dubrovnik, but it’s fairly easy to get to the city by driving or by taking a bus. Sailing holidays in Croatia are also very popular, and Dubrovnik is one of the best places to experiment this.

Korcula

Also known as Marco Polo’s birth place, Korcula seems to good to be real – it’s basically an island off the coast of Croatia, filled with green forests, vineyards, olive groves, sandy beaches and charming villages.

Its main town, Korcula town, is a historic walled town with Venetian Renaissance architecture, spectacular views and plenty of touristic attractions.

English is also  spoken at most bars and restaurants, so you shouldn’t really have a hard time enjoying the island. You can also rent a snorkel, mask, and swim fins and see the wonderful marine biodiversity, or even rent a kayak and go a bit further from the coast to snorkel.

Split

The second largest city in Croatia, Split is a jewel of history and architecture. The city was originally built around the Diocletian palace (a palace/fort built for the retired Roman emperor Diocletian) and has since grown into a prosperous and complex city.

Facing the harbor, Diocletian’s palace is still one of the most imposing Roman ruins in existence and grants a special feel to the entire city. The palace area also features several gothic and reinassance buildings which makes a perfect match.

But Split is not all about the history – the city also has some fantastic beaches, and while you can only sunbathe during the Summer, it’s a great experience. You can actually sail from Dubrovnik to Split or the other way around, and the view is spectacular – but be prepared to dig quite deep in your pocket.
