In my capacity as the UK Director of Operations for One World Tours Limited, I am often asked about the destinies I have been to so that is why I try to give a good opinion on those places. Here then, are my top suggestions for sites to take in during your holiday in the Croatia.
Croatia's coastline stretches thousands of miles, and offers more than 1,000 offshore islands. The country has a mild Mediterranean climate which makes it such an appealing destination.
A visit to Zagreb, which is the capital city of Croatia offers itself as the focal point of culture and science and is located between the Adriatic coast and Central Europe.
Zagreb also offers its tourists the Baroque atmosphere of the Upper Town. There are quaint open-air markets which give the browser a variety of shopping facilities. The country boasts many stunning green parks which you can visit including places of interest in the beautiful surroundings.
Trogir is located in the center of Dalmatia and considered to be one of the best places to stop on the Dalmatian coast which is on the eastern coastline of Adriatic sea. Trogir is also a good place to be if you wish to travel on to Split, where obviously you can see the Diocletians Palace. Split is the second largest city in Croatia and is located on the coast. Being a very old and stunningly beautiful town it is very surprising that many that visit choose it to take advantage of the water sports that are available here.
Located near Sibnik and along the Krka River you will find the Krka National Park. It has many beautiful waterfalls some of which have naturally fresh waters to swim around in. You will see a back of rugged limestone mountains and glimpse the many islands archipelagos of the Adriatic Sea. Whatever your age it is a fantastic place for a family to spend some quality time together.
Another National Park in Croatia is the Brijuni islands which were proclaimed as a national park over twenty years ago. There are a total of islands which make up the park, the largest being the Veliki and Mali Brijuni.
The islands are a haven of unspoilt nature pockets which make a natural home to a safari park and a zoo.
There are also traces of early neolithic inhabitation have been discovered on the island but one of the most amazing archaeological sites here is the pre-historic settlement on Gradina hill.
Alternately the beauty of the Plitvice lakes and National Park lies in its sixteen lakes which are inter-connected by a variety of waterfalls. These waters are and set in deep woodland which is home to a diversity of wildlife, including rare bird species, bears, wolves, and deer.
Zagorje could be described as possibly the most idyllic county in Croatia, with its rolling hills, many villas and small towns that spread out across these hills and the rivers, creeks and lakes it makes a picturesque scene that is fit for the finest jigsaw puzzle.
In the past Krapina-Zagorje was a part of the Austrian Empire making the majority of 40 castles and mansions built in the country of this era. Some of the best known monuments are Veliki Tabor and the castles of Trakoscan and Miljana.
