Bathed in warm Mediterranean sun, Croatia is bordered by snowy tops of the Alps in the north-west, the banks of the Danube River in the east and the Adriatic Sea along the entire coast in the south-west. The sea, rocky mountains, islands, forests, rivers, green hills and golden plains are enfolded within the unique position of Croatia.
Thanks to its position, Croatia, a country of a thousand islands – as they sometimes use this name of endearment for it, is a blend of thousands of years old historical and cultural heritage, unreal natural beauty, top gastronomy, different lifestyles, dialects and mentalities. Its unique national treasure is crowned by eight national parks and eleven parks of nature, while its seven cultural and historical monuments are included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage. At every step, you will come across an unrepeatable experience –a tradition living in the tradition of olive grove and vineyard cultivation, a cultural tradition interwoven by non-material heritage. Should you take a walk along the stone streets of the coastal towns of Istria, Kvarner or Dalmatia, the return to history is guaranteed. Should you, on the other hand, decide to follow the green roads of continental Croatia, you will reach fairy-tale castles, country houses and feel the respect for customs, tradition and nature.
Step onto the paths of tradition and seductive gastronomy
Blending with the indented coast, the sea and Istria form a magic oasis of peace and a place impregnated with tradition, beautiful experiences and a seductive gastronomy. Each part of Istria will tell you a separate story and you will have the impression of forever wandering to and fro between different worlds. Life on the coast has always been closely with the sea, while the inland of Istria became a separate world, where you can come across traces of one-time civilisations and lifestyles.
Experience the blend of the sea, islands and forests
In the morning hours, sail across island bays and in the afternoon hide yourselves from the bustle and relax in the fragrance of a pine tree forest and a coil of clear rivers and streams! Only in the Kvarner can you ski in winter with a sea view, in summer sail away to intact islands and, in spring, enjoy the view of the Kvarner and Istria from the top of the Učka Mountain!
