5 THINGS TO DO
Centring on the port city of Pula, noted for its first-century Roman amphitheatre, is a peninsula in north-west Croatia with close cultural and historic ties to Italy. Istria’s top seaside resorts lie along its west coast, and include Rovinj and Poreč, home to the 6th century Unesco listed Euphrasius Basilica, adorned with golden Byzantine mosaics.
Kvarner is an invaluable combination of sea, islands and mountains in a very small space. In just one day you can sail a yacht, take a swim in the sea or enjoy the shade of the nearby wooded interior. Indulge in the culinary delights, enjoy the numerous events, cultural events and festivals, visit the shrine or become a master in preparing Mediterranean dishes and enjoy the traditional events.
3. Island Cres
Cres has a wild, natural allure that’s intoxicating and inspiring. Sparsely populated, it’s covered in dense primeval forests and boasts a craggy coastline of soaring cliffs, hidden coves and ancient hilltop towns. Big skies and huge vistas are very much on the agenda in Cres and it seems every road and pathway offers scenery on a very grand scale, indeed, this is some island.
4. Plitvice lakes
Protected in one of the oldest national parks in the whole region, Plitvice Lakes have become famous around the world as one of the most beautiful natural spots in the world. It’s no wonder, with the waterfalls snaking through lush green trees, landing in turquoise pools, encircled by white borders, it seems like a fairyland that might disappear at any time. Better go visit sometime soon, just in case.
5. National park Brijuni
The Brijuni island group, that lies off the southwest coast of Istria in the vicinity of Pula, was once the meeting place of the European and world jet set. It ranks as one of the loveliest archipelagos in the Mediterranean. Each guest knows that on this unique area there is a chance to enjoy the simple and often forgotten charms of nature.
An evolving culture
From prehistoric times to date, numerous types of monuments have arisen throughout the country, each one selflessly leaving its trace in history. Croatian culture is just like the country of Croatia - beautiful, varied and established in proud traditions.
