Picturesque Croatia offers tourists wide unspoiled beaches of the Adriatic surrounded by pine trees and rocks, hospitable cuisine, and treatment at mineral springs.
To the golden rule “Closer to nature!” in Croatia everyone follows, but each in its own way. Someone enjoys the stunning ecology of the country: the cleanest sea and beaches, where pine trees rise instead of ridiculous beach umbrellas, and the coastal waters are tens of meters transparent. Someone chooses the healing power of earth and water – good, in Croatia, there are as many as 20 mineral springs and one field of the unique medicinal oil. Well, the most radical citizens, accustomed to taking everything literally, come here to throw off the hypocritical veils of civilization and completely merge with nature on one of the many nudist beaches.
The quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to get to Croatia is by plane. Croatia has five main international airports that are also the main points of entry in Croatia: Zagreb, Pula, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik airports handle the majority of scheduled and charter flights from Europe and North America. Once you arrive, continue around by air, train, bus, or ferry.
Croatia has a continental climate in the north of the country, a mountainous climate in the central part, and a Mediterranean climate on the Adriatic coast. Summers are dry and hot in places, while winters are mild and rainy. The average temperature in winter is +5 … + 10 ° C in coastal areas, and in the mountains it drops to -5 … 0 ° C. In summer, it is quite fresh in the mountains: +15 … + 20 ° C, and at sea it is hot and sunny – +23 … + 27 ° C, water temperature – +22 … + 25 ° C. However, it is sunny everywhere in Croatia. This country is one of the world record holders for the number of sunny days per year.
The best time to visit is May and September. In July and August, the weather is great, but there are too many tourists and the beaches are crowded. April and October are also very good in Croatia, but swimming is pretty cool.
