4 Reasons to Consider a Trip to Croatia
An Eastern European country that boasts natural beauty and Mediterranean wonder, Croatia is the perfect destination for travelers who are looking for a breathtaking adventure. Beyond its enchanting castles and lovely seaside towns, you’ll discover an array of attractions that allow you to fully embrace the diversity of Croatian culture.
If you’re looking to enjoy the weather during your trip, the best time to visit Croatia is between April and September – so plan accordingly. Beyond an opportunity to explore the shining sun in South-Central Europe, here are four reasons to consider a trip to Croatia:
- Take in the picture-perfect landscapes
Whether you’re enjoying the natural springs, picturesque mountain tops or glorious beaches, the sights of the Croatian landscapes are reason enough to travel to Europe – Mother Nature certainly took her time on this country. For exceptional waterfalls and lakes so beautiful you won’t believe your eyes, head to Plitvice Lakes National Park. You can also sit back, relax and enjoy the views of the Adriatic Sea on Zrce Beach and Pag Island.
- Enjoy fun-filled, diverse tourist attractions
Beyond the national parks and beaches, there are dozens of ways to spend your time in Croatia. Visit the town of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of Croatia’s top tourist attractions. The city is enclosed with sturdy, medieval defensive stone walls that were created in the Middle Ages to protect its citizens. Now, tourists can take a journey from the rooftops and take in unforgettable sights of the sea. From inside the barriers, you can gaze upon the churches, monasteries, museums and fountains – and visit them as well, of course.
For those who want to partake in a more adventurous activity, spend a day kayaking along the white pebble beaches and explore the glorious wooded islands. Hikers may consider climbing to the top of Vidova Gora, which is the highest peak of the Adriatic islands. You’ll trek through pine forests, vineyards, wild flowers and rolling hills. Once you get to the top, you can settle down at the eatery and take in the beautiful scenery that goes for miles and miles. If you plan to take on this adventurous excursion, just be sure to wear hiking boots and pack plenty of water.
- Indulge in the delicious and fresh local seafood
Travelers and locals alike can agree the best seafood is served at the coastal restaurants. On a trip to Croatia, you’ll have little to no trouble finding delicious and fresh tuna, squid, octopus, mussels, oysters and more. Some of the best places to eat near the sea in Croatia include Konoba Batelina in Pula, Monte in Rovinj, Perivoj in Split and Kapetanova kuca in Mali Ston.
- Sip on world-class wine
France and Italy may have a reputation for producing delicious wine, but a glass from Croatia may be just as aromatic and satisfying. Dalmatia is one of the more popular sub-regions for wine enthusiasts. The grapes grown here create strong, well-rounded taste and fruity aromatic wines. Central and South Dalmatia are home to some of the most popular vineyards in the country, such as Kastela and Dingac. Other popular wine regions include Istria, Slavonia and Plesivica.
