Croatia: thousand islands, thousand holiday ideas
Enjoy a trip to Croatia and explore southeastern Europe with all its beautiful beaches and fascinating nature. The State of Croatia exists since 1991, before that Croatia was part of Yugoslavia, Austria-Hungary, the Venetian empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Roman Empire. Croatia has two distinctly different parts, one facing the Adriatic Sea with thousands of little Islands in crystal clear water and miles of white sand beaches. The other part lies inland around the Capital Zagreb with mountains, lakes, mysterious woods and beautiful meadows.
The Croatian coast and its beaches and islands are well developed for tourism and for many here it is the more beautiful alternative to Italy. They follow roman emperor Diocletian, who built an enormous palace in 305 AD for his retirement on the Croatian coast, which then developed into the Dalmatian town of Split. 4000 Miles of beach, beautiful little villages and a gorgeous landscape are hard to conceal, so the Dalmatian coast is a tourist destination of great importance in Europe. With the towns of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Split with Diocletian’s palace, the southern part of the coast has two world famous highlights. But there is also the food, a distinct mediterranean cuisine that you won’t find anywhere else.
Even if the coast of Croatia demands a lot of attention from the visitors, don’t forget that Croatia has attractions beyond the beach. Visit Zagreb, the Capital of Croatia, a two hours train ride from the coast. Founded in the 11th century on a hilltop as a Bishop’s seat, this original area of Zagreb is called Kaptol, the Bishop’s City, with the Cathedral of Zagreb as the main attraction. In the west on another hill the Upper City (Gornji Grad) was built, where citizens, artisans and merchants built their settlement since the 13th century. To some this the most beautiful part of Zagreb to explore, with its beautiful little alleys and old buildings. The Church of St. Mark and its public square are the highlights of the Upper City. The Lower City (Donji Grad) was formed in the 19th century, with a beautiful park-like structure called the horseshoe at its center, where public institutions, museums, the botanical garden and a cemetery are located.
Nature lovers should see the Plitvička Jezera national park with its unique lakes connected by waterfalls. The Risnjak National Park features the southern part of the Alps and is perfect for mountaineers as well as winter sport enthusiasts. This area is also very popular with mountain bike riders.
