What better way to experience this than with Croatia vacation rentals?

Croatia Travel Destinations

Slavonia can lead vacationers to fishponds at the foot of the Bilogora Mountain, the crop-growing area of Pozega, or the history and culture of Osijek; all areas have structures of interest to visit. Slavonski Brod is both fertile and a good area for hunting.

Zagreb has a real abundance of attractions for the vacationer, from prehistoric history, to museums, theater, sports, and dining on domestic and international cuisine. Shopping can include the buying of a ballpoint pen in the land of its birth, to many craft goods such as baskets, ceramics, china, and crystal.

Central Croatia includes Karlovac, where four rivers provide much of the recreation, and visiting Baroque structures in the central square appeals to the cultural. A fortress from the 1500’s has been converted to the popular Native Museum in Sisak. Krapina is a history and culture lovers’ delight, containing a very important Neanderthal site, and wine trails leading outward.

Refresh your vacation appetite with visiting Pula: it’s either a starting point for an excursion, or a center of entertainment. You’ll find a plethora of strong sports, live music, gaming, and two marinas gathering yachts. Even movies take their place here in Arena, home to the annual Croatian Film Festival.

Rijeka and the surrounding area combine the experience of the Adriatic Sea with the adventure of mountains. Those looking for a different slant on tourism, namely business and religious, will find Rijeka very satisfying. Rijeka is also a cultural center with annual events, and since it is Croatia’s largest port, expect the tourism to blossom here.

Zadar holds an excellent blend of things to do for recreation, dining, and culture and history. St. Donat Church is a well-worth attraction to visit, and a good dose of museums to note, ranging from sacral art to maritime to archaeological subjects. Very available sports here include handball, tennis, basketball, windsurfing, and angling. Try a restaurant in Zadar for local cuisine.

History and culture dominate the atmosphere of Sibenik, where a rather architecturally unique Cathedral of Sibenik should not be missed. Outdoor recreation abounds in Sibenik, including diving, rowing, yachting, small game hunting, beach volleyball, and courses in falconry. The Dolac quarter in town features approximately one hundred music-oriented cafés.

Cultural Split is proud of its Palace of Diocletian, part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. Enjoy the number of beaches and port marinas in this city. Its wine cellars produce various domestic varieties of beverage. The well-cultivated Marjan Forest Park is a haven for nature paths, and contains a zoo, along with a great view available of both the older and newer parts of Split. The Island of Hvar is Croatia’s longest island, which is a land of high-class beaches and calm bays.

The beautiful city of Dubrovnik displays the history of Croatia through its various galleries and museums such as the Maritime Museum, recounting the coastal pursuits of both Dubrovnik and the entire country. Take time to visit the attractions in Dubrovnik, for they are many. Charter a yacht here or tour in a fast hydrofoil boat…or maybe go to the Dubrovnik Summer Festival to enjoy music and performing arts.
