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 😉 …

  • Traveling really teaches you a lot of things
.
Especially when you are away for a longer term. But also short trips like my recent one to Copenhagen always help me to remember some lessons and show me some new ones
.
Traveling teaches you about other cultures, nature, other people, politics, human behaviors and ultimately about yourself
.
But just like anything in life, the great learnings don't just happen all of a sudden. You need to keep moving forward in order to get smarter and better at whatever you do
.
And if you want to become a better version yourself and learn as much as you can, then you have to work hard on your behaviour and always stay open minded
.
At the end of the day it's all about putting one foot in front of the other. Just never stop learning. And if you need a good teacher, start travelling as much as you can. Even if it's just for a short trip to Copenhagen... 😉
