The Most Amazing Places On The Coast Of Croatia

Enchanting Croatian Coast places well worth visiting

The most mesmerizing sights of Croatia can be found along its spectacular coast. The Croatian coastline is where the warm sunshine sinks into the golden sand and the waves gently brush the shores to create a surreal environment. The marvelous beaches are surrounded by the sapphire blue Adriatic Sea on one end, and by dense forests and intriguing towns on the other. The national parks of this region display phenomenal natural beauty, while the towns are replete with historical wonders. The landscape is crisscrossed by shimmering streams and lofty mountain ranges. Architectural masterpieces from the medieval ages further add to the grandeur of the scenery. Following are some of the most beautiful places on the coast of Croatia that are incredibly enchanting and worth of visiting.

The City Of Dubrovnik

The stone walls of the city of Dubrovnik pay homage to the fortified town that stood here in the olden times. Several relics of the ancient city can be spotted in the Dubrovnik of the present day. The magnificent Lovrijenac Fort stands guard near the coast, while the opulent Sponza Palace has preserved its striking interiors. The red-roofed houses glow in the sunshine and create a pleasing contrast with the sandy seashores, while the cobbled streets are adding a rustic charm to the city. Be it the lively atmosphere of the main street of Stradun, or the old-world elegance of the Franciscan Monastery, the city of Dubrovnik never ceases to impress with its innumerable treasures.

Krka National Park

The Krka National Park is home to a plethora of fascinating waterfalls, with the Skradinski Buk falls being the most popular. This series of frothy waterfalls pours into a turquoise blue pool of water, creating scenery with colors so vivid that it resembles a painting. Equally stunning are the cascades of Roski Slap and the tranquil waters of the Krka River. The island of Visovac, a tiny speck on the Krka River, holds a Franciscan Monastery that has been converted into a museum. The Krka Monastery is yet another place worth visiting, to admire its grandeur of Byzantine and Mediterranean architecture. This national park is a fine example of the harmonious coexistence of nature and culture.

Brac Island

The island of Brac is famous for its horn-shaped beach of Zlatni Rat, that protrudes into the Adriatic Sea like a sword made of white pebbles. This beach is ideal for sunbathing and also for a round of windsurfing. To explore the local culture, head over to the oldest settlement of the island at Skrip. This town holds some quaint churches as well as the Museum of Olive Oil that narrates the tale of olive cultivation on Brac Island. The town of Supetar is more modern in nature and is known for its breathtaking beach and the wonderful sculptures at the local mausoleum. The port of Supetar is always filled with sailing yacht charter from all around the world. The entire island is livened up by the shine of the limestone houses, thanks to the renowned stone quarries of this region.

The City Of Makarska

The city of Makarska is an excellent location, both for a laid back vacation, as well as an adventurous holiday. You can relax at the horseshoe shaped bay or can take a stroll on the promenade that is lined with coconut trees. Visiting the colorful flower and fruit markets in the main square, and the unique Sea Shell Museum, is also a good option. The city lies at the foot of the Biokovo Mountain and therefore holds several opportunities for adventure sports. To add a bit of thrill to your day, sign up for a hike, or pedal your way to the summit. The glorious view of the town from the top is worth all the effort.

Hvar Island

The island of Hvar is often referred to as the best party destination in Croatia, and with the good reason. This island is blessed with some alluring beaches that come to life at night, with great music and a cheerful environment. There are also several interesting activities for the daytime. You can wander through the fragrant lavender fields or can enjoy a sunny afternoon at St. Stephen's Square. The medieval palace of Fortica offers a panoramic view of the island, due to its elevated position atop a hill, while the simplicity of the Benedictine Monastery will transport you back in time. Hvar is an amazing blend of traditional heritage and modern culture that displays the true spirit of Croatia.
