Why Croatia will be the best travel destination this year
Croatia was ranked first of the 100 most popular destinations for Germans this year, according to a study we presented a few days ago.
But this is not only valid for the Germans, because the famous Bear Grylls also wants to come here to see our country, and even to film here.
So why do travelers all over the world love this country and put it at the top of their list of destinations? They call it the Adriatic Wonderland and one of the best sunny destinations. But there is much more to it.
Here are some of the reasons Croatia will be the best travel destination this year –
The sun and the sea
Croatia is preferred by many in the summer and the other sunny and warm months of the year due to its sea, beaches and the Adriatic sun.
It is not necessary to mention all the islands that fascinate visitors, the Sapphire Sea or all the swimming, canoeing and other water activities available here.
As an added bonus, there are plenty of nice hotels, beach bars, and the option to board a cruise ship. Or they can just go from island to island, from one port city to another – Dubrovnik, Split or Rijeka.
As a foreign tourist, you can choose from over 1000 islands and rest assured that you will always be surrounded by sunshine and clear waters. One of the best choices is Zlani Rat. Here you can go windsurfing, jet skiing and scuba diving. What else?
Food and drink
Croatia also has a lot of fine food and drinks.
It’s a gourmet paradise when it comes to pantry. For example, pasticada, black Dalmatian risotto or any other Mediterranean cuisine dish filled with fish, seafood, vegetables or even beef and dried fruit stew.
When it comes to drinks, the one everyone is talking about is wine. Slavonia has the best deals, white wines are the best of them. Travelers can find Sauvignon, Chardonnay or Pinot Gris here. And there’s Zelenac Doré and Grasevina, both of which add to the region’s finest wine collection. In fact, Croatia enjoys a warm climate all year round which makes it possible to produce the best wines.
The fun in the casinos
One of Croatia’s most famous attractions are its fantastic casinos. Whether you like to play traditional games like blackjack, roulette, or poker, you can find them all here. We live in the tech world, where all of the best casino games are available through mobile gaming apps, but a trip to a real casino will definitely be worth it, especially if we factor in locations and architecture. of the region.
In fact, Croatia has a very liberal gambling reputation and its regulations allow online gambling in physical casinos. Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb are perhaps the best places to play.
Wild nature and natural beauty
Perhaps the first natural beauty that comes to everyone’s mind is the UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park. Besides the lakes and waterfalls, along with the Korana Canyon, tourists may have the chance to spot wild animals.
Then there is the Velebit mountain range, where you can also find animals like the brown bear and the lynx. And don’t miss the Krka National Park either.
People love to take an ecological break in the crowded, cloudy big city they come from. And that doesn’t just mean the hikes around the wild natural beauties, but also the chance to glamp on the Adriatic coast. One example is on the uninhabited island of Zut, outside of Kornati National Park.
Culture and history
Speaking of eco-breaks, a foreign traveler may want to try the islet of Zlarin, near Sibenik, where they can find a car-free village.
Culture and history are ubiquitous across Croatia, and we’re not just talking about its most famous place, Dubrovnik.
You shouldn’t miss the European Capital of Culture 2020, Rijeka, or maybe Hvar City. Split, Rovinj, Zadar, Pula and of course the capital Zagreb are also places where culture and history go hand in hand – with tourism too.
