Great destinations in Croatia

There are always fun things you can do when you are on holiday, and Croatia is no different from any other place in that respect. This is an amazing land of natural beauty, rich heritage and warm people. One of the best ways to experience all this is to visit as many fun places in Croatia as your travel itinerary allows you.

Here are some of the best holiday destinations and summer activities you can do while holidaying in Croatia.

1. Sailing

Croatia has more than 1,000 islands, making sailing along its coastal line one of the most popular holiday activities. Indeed, if you opt for the Adriatic Coast, you can combine a sailing holiday with stop-offs on the mainland for land-based fun. You can also enjoy many island stopovers, as well as visit some of lighthouses on small remote islands.

2. National parks

There are several national parks in Croatia, but if you have to pick one, make it Plitvice Lakes National Park, outside Zagreb. This is a World Heritage Site with 16 lakes all connected to each other, waterfalls and trails made of wood planks. It is visited annually by over a million people from around the world.

3. Zadar

Croatia is home to many old towns full of historic interest to adults and Zadar – located by the sea – is one you won’t want to miss. It boasts a Roman forum dating back 2,000 years, home-made ice cream at the Donat Sladoled parlour, a summer music festival and romantic narrow streets.

4. Old City Walls

If you are spending a romantic holiday in Dubrovnik, check out the old city walls – with the original city of Dubrovnik inside them – with a boat trips around its waterway. There are also lovely restaurants offering local cuisine here. You might even catch a celebrity or two visiting here, or making movies. Plus you can catch a ferry to one of nearby islands, or enjoy port cruises.

5. Zagreb

Zagreb offers plenty for adults and children – including art galleries, museums, boutique fashion outlets and the Museum of Trinkets. It is also a great city to explore by foot, or by taking a tram. Considered one of the safest cities in Europe it attracts numerous visitors, as a holiday destination in its own right.

6. Visit a casino

For adults, a visit to Split’s Platinum Casino will be a great nightlife option. Found inside the city’s Hotel Atrium, it offers slots, numerous types of poker, blackjack and American roulette – and also has sports betting nights on Saturday and Wednesday.

Don't forget the city's other attractions, such as its palmed promenade, its city markets and of course famous Dicoletian Palace. The city of Split offers many ferry connections to the nearby islands, such as Hvar and Brač. There is also ferry from Split to Italian city of Ancona, which is handy if you want to hop over to Italian coast and vice versa.

7. Hand crafted toys

If you are looking for something different to entertain children, a visit to the local toymakers in Hrvatsko Zagorje could be ideal. These artists create toys carved from wood, making it a peek into a long-lost world.

8. Light symphony

The whole family will enjoy the astonishing display of sun and sea found on Zadar’s promenade via the Sea Organ. These pipes are part of the steps and the air pushed down them by the tide creates a beautiful symphony of light and sound.

9. Zlatni Rat Beach

../images/Zlatni-rat-beach.jpg

The name may not sound appealing (Golden Horn Beach), but this beach by the Adriatic Sea is probably the finest in Croatia. Considered one of the loveliest in the world, its ever shifting shape is the perfect spot to relax in. Located near the town of Bol, on Brač island, one of the largest on this coastline.

10. War Photo Limited

For a more sobering experience, this Dubrovnik museum exploring the effects of war on the country is an excellent – if emotional place to visit. It is ideal for adults who want to learn more about this subject.

There is something to suit everyone in Croatia. You'll find more ways to enjoy the country, but this will be a good start. Experience the thrill and advanture of Croatia on your holiday here.
