Croatia is often called as “The Land of Thousand Islands”, but this is just one of the interesting things and places visit. Goal of this text is to convince you to come to Croatia so you could see everything by yourself. My focus will be on Croatia coast, but there is also so much to visit on the continental part of the land.
Everyone of you readers probably already heard about ancient walls of Dubrovnik or about Diocletian Palace in Split. But did you ever heard about Plitvice Lakes or The Arena in Pula? Croatia really has a lot to offfer, from natural beauty to the wonders of the ancient architecture. Since this land was under Roman Empire in the ancient times, much of the roman culture was saved and protected up to now. I can give you some tips what to visit when you come here on a vacation. The Arena in Pula is one of the best preserved colloseums in the world, even better than that one in Rome. From this part of Croatia i can also mention one of the oldest cathedrals (dates from 6. century or early Byzantine arhitecture) in Europe, called Euphrasian Basilica and it is located in Poreč. When you go direction south from Istra region (where Pula and Poreč are located), you need to visit Zadar. It is a city which combines old arhitecture with the new one. Make sure not to skip Sea Organ (makes music out of waves) or electrial installation called “Hello to the Sun”. Also, Zadar was one of the most important cities in Croatia history in which are you going to be convinced when you visit one of many museums in the city. Šibenik and Trogir are also cities that represent original ancient arhitecture where you can see how was the defence system of the towns and how architects used brilliant solutions to improve efficiency of the everyday life. Beside Split and Dubrovnik you already know or at least heard about them, i will tell you something different. Omiš and Ston are places that should be on your “must see” list. Why? Because Omiš is an old pirate city where even now there are plays that imitate those old battles. Ston is specific for its ancient walls beacuse they are one of the longest walls in the Europe. When you are already at Ston, try the shells in one of their restaurants 😉
Regarding those natural wonders i talked about, i will also say something about them.
There are 8 national parks all over the Croatia. Each of these parks is beautiful on its on way, but maybe the easiest ones to access are Plitvice Lakes and National Park Krka. As i mentioned it before, Croatia is land of many islands. Most of them are really worth of seeing, such as National Park Brijuni or National Park Mljet. Beside them, big attractions is Blue Cave on island Biševo and island Hvar, especially for young people that want to have fun. If you are an adventurist, then you should rather choose Nature Park Biokovo or Nature Park Velebit which are big, old massives from which you have spectaculare view of the islands and the see.
