Top 7 experiences in Croatia
Croatia is a land of many experiences! For those who love an active holiday, one can go exploring on cycles, paddle boats, kayaking into the sea, for those looking for culture Zagreb offers many features, plays, and great cafes. Food lovers have to head to seafood heaven in Istria and nature lovers to the National Parks here. Here is our list of top things to do in Croatia!
HIKE in Plitvice Lake. 295 square kilometres of a forest reserve which are home to 16 lakes cascading into one another amidst a mesh of limestone caves. It is beautiful beyond words and autumns are a great time catch auburn leaves strewn on the many pathways that mark the trail. A bus takes you to the upper side and a short boat ride helps you navigate the lower waters and in between is a carefully marked out trail, parts of which sometimes become redundant when the water over flows. A beautiful phenomenon and a hiker’s delight!
EAT in Istria. Because of its proximity to Italy, the Italian influence in the food and the culture is quite strong in Istria. Major towns being Pula and Rovinj. But Rovinj steals the cake(literally), with its pretty seaside town vibe. The old cobbled streets are picture perfect and combine them with the world famous cafes, serving the world famous sea food platter! Yummy!
CYCLE in Zagreb: Zagreb is great for cycling. Everybody makes way for you on the streets, there are lanes demarcated, you can explore the whole of the upper and the old town with a bike, to stop at sights on your own accord and also head to explore beautiful parks in and around Zagreb. Great examples of Park architecture and a good way to spend some time in the outdoors, this is. The team at Blue Bike tours do a good job of their trips! Try them if you are looking for a guided tour, else just hire a bike.
SEA KAYAKING in Dubrovnik: The King's Landing is the old town of Dubrovnik and it has a charming feel to it. Cobbled streets, golden lanterns, cafes and book stores, musicians playing a melody and a wall surrounds this city to keep the Mediterranean on the outside, For those looking for some adventures in the water, sea kayaking tours leave a little outside the Wall. Kayak your way to the nearby island of Lokrum and discover limestone caves and the glittering Mediterranean ahead of you! Leaving the Old city behind while you set off into the sea, has a romantic feel to the whole set up!
ISLAND Hopping Split: Split is a gateway to some of the best islands and beaches of Europe, after Cyprus. Day trips can be made to Hvar for some celebrity spotting, island of Brac where you can discover Supetar in one day with its architecture and history or visit the iconic Zlatni Rat beach. Vis for its great food scenes, or alternate between KrK, Rab and the party island of Pag.You can take ferries between most of these islands, or you can also hire a private yacht and do the rounds. Depending on how much you want to pay for your island experience on the Dalmatian Coast.
MUSIC of sea Zadar: Red roofs will greet you, if you live in a terrace apartment in this picturesque city. Old ruins strewn about, great fashion wear, beautiful monuments will fill your mind space, but what this city really offers are great sunsets and the Sea Organ. Croatian artist Nicola Basic grew tired of redeveloping the war torn city with concretes, to add a little charm he designed the sea organ, with its flutes, tubes and wind ways made a beautiful sound along with the wind and the sea waves. It’s a piece of art and the sound very mellow and melancholy, almost like an old lover calling out!
