Get to know Croatia

Croatia, where the Pannonian Sea lapped Dinaric Alps, where Slavic gods quibbled for centuries, where the Balkan resists becoming Europe, where Europe withholds from their east, in the way of warring kingdoms, on the border of both, same and different, there is a precious piece of ground.

More than a thousand Croatian islands, islets, and rocks are the basis of many Greek temples. Old Christian churches now lay in the middle of nowhere. Defensive walls on hilly slopes still stand tall and guard against pirates. Slavic heritage is tattooed on wrists of old locals. Urban centers of Dalmatia are proud of the Renaissance cathedrals. Secession facades of Continental Croatia lazily doze in the midday sun. City squares are occupied with realistic and abstract sculptures from the socialist era. Many great rulers fought for this country. They left behind a vast cultural heritage.

The various terrestrial geography and thousands of kilometers of coastline, fill the tables of Croatian households with homegrown fruits. Traditionally, Croats pay much attention to meals and proudly share them with guests. Recently, winemakers and young chefs started to experiment, and the results are the finest, often very brave gastronomic adventures. Often unfairly overlooked Croatian food and drinks finally begin to get some world attention.

How would you describe Croatia?

If there was just one word to describe the Croatian coast, it would be diversity. Thinking about sea kayaking, sailing, cliff diving, deep water solo climbing… Each island is a world for itself. Some are naked as the moon, while others are rich with verdure. Some are uninhabited and the others bloom with life. If you wake up feeling local – find an old fisherman, ask him to take you fishing on his old boat or if you prefer solitude at the other hand just take a kayak and paddle to a small, intact islet.


Croatian rivers flow between hills and forests in uninhabited areas, a world away from crowded beaches and seaside resorts.

Climbing, caving, hiking, trekking, cycling, horse riding, nature survival … all within just a few hundred kilometers! If you’re lucky, sometimes it’s even possible to have fun in the morning on the snowy mountain tops and swim in the warm sea in the afternoon.
