Croatia appears to be a country of photo-ops and picture postcards. From the pastoral lowlands to Mt Medvednica, this stunning Balkan country still exhibits strong traces of its Austro-Hungarian, Venetian, Roman, and Yugoslav history. Although sailing off the Croatian coast has become popular in recent years, the interiors have almost as much to offer visitors as the picturesque towns of Dubrovnik and Split. It's worth leaving the sea behind to view the Roman Amphitheatre in Pula, baroque architecture in Varazdin, the Plitvice Lakes, or the covered bridges of Samobor. The capital of Zagreb has maintained its old-world charm despite marching on into the future with modern buildings and snazzy bars. This is a city meant for a pub-crawl so drop in on a few before deserting Zagreb for the Dalmatian coast.
There are over 1,000 islands to choose from when looking for a quiet spot on a beach, and if you want the perfect tan, naturist resorts are extremely popular and well maintained by local authorities. The local cuisine represents the various influences on Croatia over hundreds of years. There are plenty of cheese varieties, potatoes, meat, and more desserts than you could ever possibly eat. Croatia's vineyards are gaining in popularity and prestige with every successive vintage so try some now before prices soar!
International flights connect to Dubrovnik (DBV), Pula (PUY), Split (SPU), Rijeka (RJK), Zadar (ZAD), and Zagreb (ZAG). Airlines that have flights to Croatia from North America include Air Canada, Delta, British Airways, Austrian Airlines, and Croatia Airlines.
July and August are peak tourist months so try to visit from April to June or in September. At these times, accommodation rates are fairly reasonable and you won't be jostling for space on the beach. September may be the best time to be in Croatia as the school trips will have ended, the regular tourists gone home, and the sea still warm enough for a dip. Unless you're keen on skiing, avoid the wintertime when inland temperatures can drop to -10°C and coastal areas stay between 6-11°C.
