Croatia has become a new tourist destination reference, visited by millions of tourists every year. It's amazing how such a small country can offer that much. Today we will see the most important places in Croatia, but also some of its secrets.
This beautiful country in Europe has six sites declared World Heritag
e by UNESCO, and dozens of medieval towns that will make you go back in time. The nature it boasts about is one of the values most sought by visitors. Eighteen natural parks offer various activities for adventure lovers. And undoubtedly its pristine beaches are the delight of any lover of the sea.
We could start our journey through the Croatian capital, Zagreb. In Zagreb International Airport you can rent a car to enjoy many tours offered by the country. We must say that a private means of transport is essential in Croatia, as it takes many kilometres to get to its parks and beaches.
Zagreb is one of the most romantic cities in Europe, with a medieval atmosphere and Viennese influences. The city is full of theatres and museums that immerse us in its history and culture. Also if you want to take a souvenir of the city you can visit one of its most commercial streets, street Lica, or Dolac Market where you will find several posts selling ties, a garment original of this country.
Towards the coast we get to Dubrovnik, the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. A beautiful town in an unique site. Surrounded by its imposing walls of the thirteenth century. Dubrovnik is a coastal city located in the region of Dalmatia. It is one of the most important tourist centres of the Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik is a city surrounded by walls and fortifications, at the foot of the mountain of St. Sergius and with the sea at the back.
Few kilometres away from Dubrovnik we find Mljet island located at the south of the Peljesac peninsula. It is of volcanic origin, with numerous ravines and gorges, a 72% of the island is covered with forest. These features make the island a unique natural haven where you can spend an unforgettable day. To reach the island you have to use Polace port, in the north, a stop port for ferries that cross the islands. Surely, we have a lot to do in Croatia.
