Croatia’s coastline is without a doubt one of the most beautiful Mediterranean destinations. Tourists flock to Greece, Italy, Crete and Malta for a taste of turquoise oceans and warm, rocky coastlines. Croatia, on the other hand, hugs the Adriatic’s warm waters and presents one of the most beautiful Mediterranean getaways, so make the Eastern European nation your next Mediterranean retreat.
Croatia has been called home by a number of people from a myriad of different cultures. Greek, Roman, Frankish, Hungarian, Ottoman and Slavic nations have all occupied the region and added their own unique culture and architecture to the mix, giving cities like Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split and Rijeka different atmospheres and qualities.
Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most iconic landmarks. The city hugs a natural harbour around which the old city district of Ragusa built its monumental walls and red-roofed citadel and buildings. The city is most recently known as the film location for the popular television series, Game of Thrones, where Dubrovnik is represented as the novel and series’ Kings Landing. Seeking historical landmarks, relaxing on the Mediterranean beaches, and shopping in the old district are such a few of the activities awaiting the visitor.
A few miles inland lie the Dinaric Alps, a mountain range that bisects the country from north to south. Rocky outcrops, cave networks, and monumental cliffs mark the region making the are a must-see for any intrepid hiker, cyclist or adventurer. The Dalmatian Coast itself is a network of hundreds of tiny, rocky and dry islands, some of them inhabited, others hiding the ghosts of long-gone empires represented by broken down towers or walls.
Every visitor to Croatia should make the trip to Plitvice Lakes National Park. The visit would be the best place to conclude one’s experience of the country. Located in the important region between the Dinaric Alps and Croatia’s inland basin, the lakes have cut away at the limestone and dolomite, creating a web of waterfalls and deep pools of multiple hues of blue. The area is truly picturesque, summing up what is a country with astounding natural beauty.
