Croatia ActivitiesCroatia is a paradise for adventure seekers; the rugged coastline provides plenty of opportunities for diving and sailing, while the country's dramatic mountain range offers ideal terrain for climbing, hiking and walking. If you are looking for something a little less adrenaline fuelled, explore the Istrian wine region. In the north-west, where the Danube and Drava rivers meet, cyclists will find a haven of flat land to explore, while sea lovers can go kayaking in the Adriatic.
Croatia Food & DrinkHigh on any list of reasons to visit Croatia will be food. Blessed as it is with such a wonderful coastline, it will come as no surprise to learn that seafood and fish feature heavily on Croatian menus, especially if you are hopping around the many islands that lay off the coast. The country's cuisine is based on simple, hearty fare, especially inland, but in cities such as Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split, chefs are beginning to innovate, making it a great time to visit if you are a foodie.
Croatia AttractionsCroatia's history and architecture is as varied as its landscape; wandering around Split or Dubrovnik you are as likely to come across a Venetian palace as you are a Slavic church. Exploring the country's past is a wonderful way to get in touch with its present, making trips to Diocletian's Palace in Split, Trsat Castle in Riejka and the Roman amphitheatre in Pula a must. And be sure not to leave before experiencing the incredible watery world of Plitvice Lakes national park.
