If you’ve got friends and family who have travelled to Croatia then you’re probably familiar with hearing about how truly wonderful it is! From stunning beaches to delicious food and old cities to get blissfully lost in, there are so many reasons to dream of visiting this spectacular country. Here are a few to get you started.
1. The Blue Cave
This natural wonder has to be seen to be believed! During certain times of day the sun reflects off the white cave bottom to bathe the cave in an amazing aquamarine glow. Pictures simply don’t do it justice. It is truly a unique pleasure to behold.
2. The Sea Organ
Though it doesn’t look like it, the Sea Organ of Zadar is a must-visit destination. Water rushes into this experimental musical instrument and creates a beautiful organ-like sound. Listen to the melody of the waves as the sun goes down. It is an experience not to be forgotten anytime soon.
3. The Waterfalls
Love chasing waterfalls? Croatia is the destination for you! The beautiful Plitvice Lakes National Park is home to some of the clearest waters and most awe-inspiring waterfalls in the world. You can easily spend the day uncovering nature’s beauty, with a different waterfall to amaze you around every bend.
4. The Seafood
Croatia’s magnificent coasts are not only home to some spectacular beaches, they’re also the best place to find some of the most divine seafood dishes! Quality local ingredients combine with simple yet sophisticated flavour combinations to create a culinary experience like no other!
5. The History
Croatia’s rich history is waiting to be discovered everywhere you look. In Split, the excitement centres around the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian, where you can learn about the country’s rich history and then enjoy a glass of wine in the palace central square as the live entertainment begins for the evening.
6. The Beaches
Like its other Mediterranean neighbours, Croatia is home to some phenomenal beaches. With crystal clear, inviting turquoise waters, it’s the perfect summer holiday destination!
7. The Sunsets
There’s something particularly mesmerising about watching the sun say goodbye for another day in Croatia. As the sky fades to spectacular hues of pink, purples and tangerine, it’s a special experience to witness, despite its occurrence everyday.
8. The City Walls
Dubrovnik is famed for its ancient city walls. The complex structure is one of the largest in Europe and is an impressive sight to witness!
9. The Sailing
If you’ve ever dreamed of throwing caution to the wind and setting sail on the deep blue sea, there is no better place to do so than Croatia! With lots of Islands and seaside destinations to visit along the way you may never want to leave the sparkling waters again.
10. The Weather
Situated on the Mediterranean, Croatia averages 2,600 hours of sunshine per year, so if you love enjoying some fun in the sun this is the destination for you! Winters are milder and spring and summer have some glorious days on offer.
11. The snorkelling
There may not be a rainbow of colourful fish awaiting you beneath the surface but the clear waters and rocky shorelines create great visibility for keen snorkelers! Did we mention the water is also warm!?
