Destination Croatia: Where to Go?
For those of you that have been to Eastern Europe you will know all about the beauty and history there is wherever you venture. Croatia has so much to see that you are going to have a trip of a lifetime. So if the question is Croatia, we look where to go while you are there.
Dubrovnik and Zagreb
The two most popular destinations at this moment in time are Dubrovnik and the capital Zagreb. Both of these cities appeal in their own unique way but there are also dozens of great places to visit in other regions in Croatia.
First up, lets take a closer look at Dubrovnik. A city once described by the great Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw as "the Pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik has so much to offer in terms of natural beauty. Tourists flock to the Old Town sector to catch a glimpse of what was once one of the foremost European city ports. This area was named a UNESCO Heritage site back in the late 70's and a wander through the well preserved streets makes for a great day out.
Zagreb is firmly on the tourist hit list as it is easier to get to than Dubrovnik and it has culture to experience by the barrell full. If museums are your thing then Zagreb is the place for you to be with dozens of them scattered throughout the city. You can also sample some delicious local dishes served up in fine restaurants around town. But if Zagreb and Dubrovnic do not appeal to your travelling style in Croatia, then where else to go?
Time to Hit the Beach
With miles of stunning coastline stretching along the Adriatic sea, some of the finest beaches in Europe are located in Croatia. Where to go is the only real question and we can quickly recommend three gorgeous beaches.
In the northwest, Lopar beach is a great destination for a family holiday while still being within range of Zagreb. Located in the west, Nin boasts a beautiful sandy beach in close proximity to the picturesque and quaint town of Nin. And located in the southwest of Croatia is a lovely little beach, not far from Dubrovnik, called Kolocep where you can indulge in a spot of kayaking in the pristine waters of the Adriatic.
