Croatia is every traveler’s dream, a destination that has everything to seduce you to extend your stay. Picturesque beaches, stunning mountain scenery, enchanting national parks, and cities that will take you back in time. Croatia’s greatest attraction is its stunning coastline, glistening with crystal clear waters. Visitors flock to the Adriatic shores to either relax or get their adrenaline pumping with various water sports on offer. Further out are a number of beautiful island paradises like Mljet. Enwrapped in thick forests, the island with a whole section comprising a national park is a vacationer’s paradise. Vis, the remotest Croatian island is another enchanting destination with its idyllic villages and sheltered coves.
Move away from the glittering waters of the sea and you’ll be as taken with the mountain scenery. Waterfalls, river canyons, rugged peaks, and stunning lakes characterize this side of Croatia. It’s where some of the most beautiful national parks like the stunning Plitvice Lakes is located. Natural dams of travertine separate these lakes which are spread over an area of 2km within a heavily forested region. The sight is one of the most stunning on the planet.
The six distinct tourist regions of Croatia have a personality of their own. History is alive in each of them, whether it’s the well preserved Roman colosseum of Pula in the Istria region, the Venetian island towns of Rab and Losinj or the ancient Diocletian’s Palace in Split. You’re sure to be captivated by the rich and sometimes tragic history that the monuments portray.
Croatia’s most popular urban attraction is the fortified city of Dubrovnik, placed firmly on the tourist map by the popular TV series, Game of Thrones. The site for Kings Landing has always been a big draw for tourists with its renaissance and baroque architecture, limestone streets and the shimmering blue of the sea. Its popularity, however, has become even more after the series. Zagreb, the capital city may not pull in the crowds for its architecture but the cafe culture is definitely a big draw. Zagreb is where you should go to have your coffee fix, sitting in any one of the numerous outdoor cafes, watching the world go by.
