10 reasons to visit Croatia

By on 18. November 2016

There are more than 10 reasons to visit Croatia, but I would have to write a book to cover everything. Obviously I can only speak for myself, but I think that everyone, who is travelling around Europe should visit this beautiful country one time at least. It is very diverse and it definitely has a lot to see. These are the 10 reasons why you have to go there…

10 reasons to visit Croatia

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Countless coastlines

The coastlines are the Nr. 1 of the 10 reasons to visit Croatia. When it comes down to coastlines, that you should visit during your travels through Europe, than Croatia should be on top of your list – read here. If you like being by the ocean, water sports or just lying at the beach, Croatia is for you. The light blue water colour will blow you mind for sure. You can look onto the hundreds of islands, regardless of where you stay at the coast. It also is a good country for road trip, because you will find many places to park your car right next to the beach or on top of a hill. The views are fantastic. The beaches are clean and not to full of tourists just yet. So get there quickly!

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Beautiful national parks

You also need to visit a national park when you go to Croatia – read more here. There are many of them, but the two most famous ones are Plitvice National Park and Krka National Park. The Plitvice National Park is even under the protection of the UNESCO. Just like many other parts and buildings of Croatia. My girlfriend and I have visited the Krka National Park and I can definitely recommand it. It is a wonderful place and you can spend a couple of days at least to explore this lovely piece of nature.

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Impressive canyons

Croatia even has some canyons you can visit, as you can read here. Actually I should have been mentioning all of them under the 10 reasons to visit Croatia, but I can not put everything in here 🙂 We have seen the Cetina canyon, which is located next to the village that we have stayed at. The village is called Omis. The canyon lies behind it and goes down south for quite a while. Certainly there are a couple good canyons like Vražji prolaz and Badnjevica to visit, but the views you get and the pictures you can take at the Cetina canyon will make a memory for life. Promised!

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Old roman castles

Something you just have to visit on your trip is an old roman castle – read more here. It does not really matter which one you take, because every one you choose will be worth the visit. Many of the castles are used for “Game of Thrones” – I guess you might know that TV show 😉 We have seen an old pirate castle on top of a small mountain in Omis – read “here”. It was very cool to have a look at, but I think you will find the best ones in Dubrovnik, Split, etc. Anyway, just make sure you visit one.

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Cities with a special style

The cities in Croatia are just absolutely georgous, just like Omis or Split – read here. It is a big factor in my opinion why more and more people want to visit this country. Every city has a charming old roman style to it, which you will not find in many other countries. Besides that you will find a lot of historically valuable buildings, old streets and shops as well as wonderful markets and restaurants. I think Croatia is a top attraction for people, who love city trips.

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Delicious food everywhere

When you visit Croatia you will find delicious food everywhere you go. You even get something from vendors on the beach 🙂 Besides that you will find everything in restaurants, bars, in small caffees and so on. There is all different kind of food – seafood, french, italian and much more. To be honest, I could not find any typical croatian food. I guess you have to eat with some locals in that case or at least ask them where to find it.

10 reasons to visit Croatia: The Croatians

The Croatians are very lovely. It is a nation full of friendly and helpful people. Everywhere you go, they will treat you very good. Most of them speak good english and they are very proud of their country. And you can see and feel that. A lot of them like to stay in Croatia and do not travel that much as far as I have experienced it. Exactly the opposite to us germans. But I can understand that completely, if you have all these beautiful things in front of your door 😉 Make sure when you visit Croatia, that you get in touch with the locals!

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Thousend islands

According to Wikipedia Croatia has 1.246 islands. Mostly known are Brac, Hvar, Vis, Korcula and Mljet. Every one of them has its special sights. You will find the “golden horn” on Brac, an old military base on Vis and much more on the other islands. Every single island has a special charme and they are a nice place for vacations, to hang out or for day tours.

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Outdoor activities

When you visit Croatia you almost will not get around the various outdoor activities. They have to be under the 10 reasons to visit Croatia. This country is full of adventures. Whether you go sailing, hiking, rafting, canyoning, climbing, driving a jetski, do paragliding or whatever you want to do, it will be a lot of fun. Along the whole coastline and in almost every village they will come up to you and try to sell you an activity. If you have some extra money, than do it. It is good fun!

10 reasons to visit Croatia: Leaving your comfort zone

Croatia is an eye opener in different kind of ways. As you can read here, I want to put some focus on the personal development you have when you travel, what you learn and what it gives you. Croatia can definitely do that for you. If you are not only visiting Croatia for an ordinary vacation or to hang out at the beach for 3 weeks, than this country can make you leave your comfort zone and open your eyes for sure.

You can do activities you probably have never done before and that are a task for you. Additionally you can see unique landscapes and get in contact with strangers. You will see that there is much more out there to discover. Croatia has shown me, that you do not necessarily have to travel that far to experience something completely new. There is beauty everywhere you go. You just need to open your eyes. Maybe it is just around the corner. I would be curious to see what it brings for you 😉 …

  • One of the best sunrises on the planet in the middle of the red desert 🌅
.
This sunrise taught me something, that I'll keep with me forever
.
It amazes me how certain moments just stick with you for the rest of your life
.
These particular moments just become one of your greatest memories instantly
.
Most of the time, it's the spontaneous decisions you make, that end up to be one of the greatest 😀
.
Seeing the sunrise at Ayers Rock was exactly a decision like that
.
I did not really plan to visit Australia's centre at all when I was there, but it was completely right that I did
.
Otherwise I would have not made such a fantastic memory
.
And only because of one thing: because I was spontaneous and stepped out of my comfort zone 💪
.
I am very grateful for the small lesson that sometimes "just going for it" ultimately leads to situations that you never forget ⏳
.

  • How crazy and fascinating at the same time is the Dubai at night? 😲😍🌇
.
This city is the existing proof that there are always two sides of a medal. A positive and a negative .
On the one hand Dubai is the ultimate symbol of what humanity is capable of. A small city built to one of the most impressive metropoles in the world within only 70 years ⏳
.
On the other hand, isn't it ironic how much money has been spent only to built this city right in the desert. There is no point in doing that
.
To me, if you think about all the poverty in the world, this just seems ridiculous. There is no other way to describe it
.
But then again, there is just no doubt that a view like this can fascinate me and many other people to the deepest core 👌
.
This list of pros and cons could go on for ages... ⏰
.
What a great combination Dubai is to show that everything just always depends on the way you see things
.
TELL ME: What's a simple lesson YOU have learned from traveling? 😄
.

Any RECOMMENDATIONS or INSIDER tips??? 🙌

  • Exploring the old conifer forests of southern Sweden...🌲🌳
.
Sweden is such a wonderful country with lots of great things to see
.
Especially unknown places like Undenäs are extremely beautiful and something I always like to remember 😍
.
Most of the time, the places that noone really goes to are the ones that are most fun and exciting to explore, right?
.
TELL ME: What's the most remote place you have ever been to??? 😄 .

  • Golden sunset at Twin Beach in El Nido 🌅🌄
.
I don't know what it exactly is, but there is something magical about a great sunset
.
Maybe it's the fact that is symbolises the end of a day. But there never really is an end to it, because a couple hours later, once we wake up, we have the chance again to do something great with our lifes 💪
.
Each and every single day we can decide how we want to spend the day, what goals we work towards to and ultimately what kind of value we bring to other people 👍
.
It's always only up to ourselfs, if we are happy at the end of the day during sunset
.
Never forget, we all have a choice. Always❗

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???

  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?

  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏
