In my capacity as UK Director of Operations for One World Tours Limited, I am often asked about the destination where I have been, so I try to give a good judgment in those places. Here are my most important suggestions for sites to adopt during your holiday in Croatia.
The coastline of Croatia stretches for thousands of miles and offers more than 1,000 islands on the coast. The country has a mild Mediterranean climate which makes it so attractive.
A visit to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, offers itself as the center of culture and science and lies between the Adriatic coast and Central Europe.
Zagreb also offers tourists the baroque atmosphere of the upper city. There are special open-air markets that offer the browser a variety of shopping facilities. The country has many beautiful green parks that you can visit, including sights in the beautiful surroundings.
Trogir is located in the center of Dalmatia and is considered one of the best places to stop on the Dalmatian coast on the east coast of the Adriatic Sea. Trogir is also a good place if you want to travel to Split, where you can of course see the palace of Diocletian. Split is the second largest city in Croatia and lies on the coast. As a very old and stunningly beautiful city it is very surprising that many visitors choose to take advantage of the water sports available here.
Located near Sibnik and along the river Krka you will find the national park Krka. It has many beautiful waterfalls, some of which naturally have fresh water for swimming around. You will see a back of rugged limestone mountains and catch a glimpse of the many archipelagos of the Adriatic. Whatever your age, it is a fantastic place for a family to spend some quality time together.
Another national park in Croatia is the Brijuni Islands that were declared a national park more than twenty years ago. There are a total of islands that make up the park, the largest of which are the Veliki and Mali Brijuni.
The islands are an oasis of untouched nature bags that form a natural home for a safari park and a zoo.
Traces of early Neolithic occupation have also been discovered on the island, but one of the most amazing archaeological sites here is the prehistoric settlement on the hill Gradina.
The beauty of the lakes and the national park of Plitvice alternate between the sixteen lakes that are connected by a variety of waterfalls. These waters are located in deep forests and harbor a variety of wildlife, including rare bird species, bears, wolves and deer.
Zagorje can be described as possibly the most idyllic province in Croatia, with its rolling hills, many villas & small towns spread over these hills and the rivers, creeks and lakes, it makes a picturesque scene that is suitable for the best jigsaw puzzle.
In the past Krapina-Zagorje was part of the Austrian Empire and built the largest part of 40 castles and mansions in the country of this time. Some of the most famous monuments are Veliki Tabor and the castles of Trakoscan and Miljana.
