09 Aug Cheap and great travel in Croatia
Tourism in Croatia has a long tradition, as the nation is one of the most popular and well traveled destinations in Europe.
Approximately 11 million foreign travelers visit the country on the coast of the Adria each year. Since the end of the 19th centuary croatia has been one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe; especially the region at the coast of the Adria. Travelers in Croatia can expect extraordinary nature as well as a lot of sights and interesting historical places. Once you arrived you can visit lots of islands near the coast or see one of the many interesting cities.
Even when it comes to nudism, Croatia is one of the most popular destinations worldwide due to king Edward VIII, who first brought nudist tourism to Rab island. Since then, the island has become the mecca of nudists from all over the world. Even if you are not a fan of nudism, the island is still worth a visit. Whoever is fine with taking a 30 minute walk from Lopar can enjoy a real paradise. If the name „paradise beach“ would not have been taken, Lopar sure would have been one of the best contendors.
But there is much more to explore and experience in Croatia. Especially the coast of the Adria, which extends 1800 kilometres from Istria to Dalmatia, offers everything a tourist could wish for: beaches and bays with crystal clear turquoise waters as well as port cities such as Rovinj and Dubrovnik that captivate tourists with their churches, palaces, nice cafés, their mediterranean flair and their hospitality.
However, the beauty of Croatia is not only apparent at the coast. The heartland offers cultural and scenic treasure no tourist could ever forget, such as Plitvice Lakes national park which is the biggest and oldest national park the country has to offer. It is located in the hilly Karst region near the border of Bosnia-Herzegowina.
The city Dubrovnik is part of UNESCOs world heritage and breathtakingly geourgeous. Whoever walks over the wooden drawbridge from the busy waterfront and leaves the fortified ramparts behind will feel as if he set food in a time machine. Narrow streets, arcades, loggias, cloisters and the marble boulevard Placa invite you for a shopping tour.
Nearly the entire old city can be circled on the mural crown.
The Minceta Tower offers the greates view on the entire northwestern route, and you can look over the rooftops up to the green island oasis of Lokrum.
Croatia has become a popular travel destination for youths as well. The attractive and beating nightlife as well as the cheap accomodations and food are arguments that convince young tourists with slim wallets. There are a whole lot of big international events and festivals in Croatia that attract visitors from all over the world. Along the coast there are numerous clubs and discos that provide their guests with the hottest beats. You might not be able to compare Croatia to Mallorca or Ibiza yet, but the party offers are growing yearly, and Croatia is certainly leading up for an overtake. The most popular party destinations are Zrce, Porec, Zadar, Primosten, Rovinj, Makarska, and Dubrovnik.
