Croatia is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in Europe. Travelers looking for something different than the usual trips through France and Italy have started flocking to one of Europe’s best-kept secret, Croatia. The beautiful country is located right along the Adriatic Sea and benefits from the perfect Mediterranean climate of the region, rolling hills filled with vineyards and a long, fascinating history with cities dotted with castles, lighthouses and architectural masterpieces. If you are looking for a destination that is one-part culture and one-part natural beauty than Croatia is the perfect place for you.
A Different Taste of the Adriatic. When most people think of the Adriatic, Greek islands come to mind. Although these may be beautiful, during peak season they are overrun and full of tourists. Prices skyrocket and boat and accommodation availability become limited at best. That’s why many people are now heading a little further north into Croatia. Here tourism is more recent and nature more unspoiled. You can find equally gorgeous beaches but relax and enjoy an easier pace of life. How can it get any better than that?
Discovering the Amazing Dubrovnik. These days, the center of it all is the incredible city of Dubrovnik. This medium-sized coastal city is everything you are looking for in a vacation destination. You can enjoy the charm of its historic old town which even still features its stone walls dating from the 1y6th century. You can also dive into the palaces and churches or head into the Stradun which blends this history with a dynamic taste of modern Czech and other cuisines making it the perfect fusion of past and present coming together in incredible harmony.
Savor The Perfect Sailing Conditions. When you hit Croatia during that peak time of the year, it’s hard to find somewhere better for boating. The winds off the Adriatic are absolutely perfect and are great for those looking to try their hand at a little sailing. These same winds also make the perfect conditions for windsurfing along with paragliding. But that’s not all. You can enjoy diving in the national marine reserve or just exploring from island to island. Croatia has long been a secret gem in Europe, but it’s quickly rising in popularity so reserve your boat charter now before it’s too late!
