Stay at small villages and towns
At its heart, village tourism consists of staying in an

dining and immediate access to any attractions in the area.
Historical and cultural attractions
What can you find, as far as attractions are concerned?
Croatia is rich in historical attractions, as well as cultural attractions. Roman ruins dot the landscape, while
you will find medieval gothic constructions throughout the country. Ruined towers, the remains of curtain walls,
ancient castles and much more can be found for your enjoyment. You can also easily access the national parks in
Croatia from the villages and towns.
Where can you stay? You can stay almost anywhere you like.
You'll find apartments and homes for rent in Istria, Sibenik, outside
of Split, near Dubrovnik, Kvarner, and on the Adriatic islands, as well.
There are numerous private accommodations available, more than 10,000 according to some estimates. You'll also find
a wide array of companies that can help you find these accommodations.
What type of housing can you find? You can rent
an apartment or choose to stay in a countryside cottage. The type of accommodations available will vary with the
area to which you travel, but apartments and even single-family homes are widely available. Many homes are occupied
(you rent a room or a portion of a home) and can dine with the host family. This is one of the most incredible ways
to get to know the locals. In addition, vast country estates are available if you have the money and the
inclination. Sprawling homes set amid pastoral beauty are one of the best ways to stay in style.
