Croatia is a country that is largely unexplored for its vast tourism potential. Running into thousands of kilometres, the country has one of the largest coastlines in Europe offering the best aquatic adventures one can indulge in. Croatia offers sumptuous Adriatic seafood and cocktails to fully enjoy the seaside life. Throw in some 1,000 offshore islands with a mild Mediterranean climate and you have a perfect getaway destination.
The Venetian old towns of Croatia are legendary for their terracotta roof tiles and are quite popular in Europe. The country’s rugged mountain ranges just add to the charm that is Croatia. The country’s interiors are no less exciting with undulating hills in Istria having picturesque hilltop towns and great cuisines to offer. Croatian wine also has connoisseurs from all over the world swearing for its taste.
History lovers would just love the castles of the Zagorje in the North with rolling green hills for company. The obscure Slavonia region in the East presents a scenic stately riverside city of Osijek and Vukovar (famous for vineyards, castles, and its indomitable spirit of still fighting the Homeland War).
The modern Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, is a contrast to its previous version during the communist rule. Now, the city is not less than any great metropolitan cities of the world with all the hues of modernism and diverse attractions. Though it’s an old city, yet it has been transformed into a judicious blend of modernism and traditional colours.
Apart from Croatian cuisine, the country is fast emerging as an adventure sports destination. The unspoilt countryside is ideal for activities, like hiking, mountain biking, mountaineering, cycling, etc. One of the prominent Extreme Sports Festivals in Croatia is the annual Vanka Regule held in the Island of Brac. And of course, with vast coastline, the aquatic adventure sports are always popular in this part of the world.
