How to survive your first trip to Croatia
Regardless of whether you are coming to Croatia on a romantic getaway, are planning a boat excursion on the Adriatic or something else, these rules and suggestions apply to everyone.
Croatia has often kindly been called the pearl of the Adriatic, charming from the inside, and seductive on its shores and islands. All true, not a lie.
Maybe you’ve been wondering why should you believe in anything we write, since we are Croats writing about Croatia. You’re right again.
The truth is that there are facts based on which our story is built. 8 national parks, 11 nature parks, over 6,000 km of indented shore with more than 1,000 islands and 10 locations protected by UNESCO are just some of the jewels in our crown.
Actually, you’re probably already aware of all this since you decided to visit “Our beauty” and that is why you are reading a blog about what to expect, how to get there, how to travel, what to visit, where to eat…
Don’t worry. We are here for you!
Journey to Croatia
If you are arriving in Croatia from another continent, you should know that there are airports located across our small country so you will not have a problem reaching your destination. During the season months, from April to September, direct flights are available from European destinations to all of the larger Croatian cities.
You can reach Croatia by bus, train, boat or maybe using the most practical means, by car. If a personal car is not an option, we suggest renting one as, according to our beliefs, this is the simplest way to move around Europe and Croatia.
So what’s the weather like in Croatia
The answer to this question depends on the part of the country you are planning to visit. Should you be planning your holiday in the interior of beautiful Istria, then the Mediterranean climate and all its characteristic will await you.
If, on the other hand, you have decided for a hilly destination in Croatia, and have planned to spend your holiday in Lika or Gorski kotar, then you will arrive in an area with a predominantly mountain climate.
If you want a unique experience: don’t miss a visit to Istria
Istria is a region that boasts the largest number of tourists in Croatia. Again a fact we can be proud of. We Croats are a proud nation and rightfully so.
Do you think the success of the 2018 World Cup in Russia is a coincidence? Think again. 😀
Anyhow, let’s get back to Istria. An interesting fact is that most tourists in Istria arrive from Europe, as, somehow, this part of Croatia has been missed by the Australian, the American, the Canadian and the Japanese radar. That is why people can often be heard speaking of Istria as a hidden pearl kept by the Europeans from the eyes of the curious.
If you opt for Istria, why not choose a destination in the interior? You will still be very close to the sea (half an hour by car), and the air, atmosphere and lack of crowds that expect you in this green interior cannot be measured with anything else.
For those wanting to spend their first holiday in Croatia in a modernly furnished villa in Istria, we are sure that Cali or Momiano will not disappoint you.
If you are looking for a bed & breakfast in the Istrian interior, then let Palazzo Angelica or Artegnana 1798 be your final destination.
Each of them tells its own story, and why wouldn’t you want to experience your first Croatian story here too.
