Автор: 06.07.2019 | travel, tourism, Croatia
Croatia is dubbed the pearl of the Adriatic coast. This country in the south of Central Europe recently became a member of the European Union. Now its beauty sites are much visited: every year more than 10 million tourists come to enjoy it, that is even more than population of the country. Let’s find out what attracts travellers so much.

Resorts in Croatia: a bit of history

Even in the 19th century aristocracy liked relaxing in Croatia. In the last century resorts on the Adriatic coast were almost the most popular in Europe. But this beautiful country had to go through difficult times.

Due to the fact that this sovereign state is relatively young and also came to independence through military action, in the 90's tourism here was in decline. But since the beginning of the 2000s, Croatia has regained its former glory of spa. Now the country's infrastructure meets international standards of service and quality.

Climate

Croatia is rich in historic and cultural sights and exclusive entertainments, nevertheless, due to its geographical location on the shores of magnificent Adriatic Sea, the country is mostly famed as a resort area. To combine relaxing holiday with excursions and yacht sport is a tempting idea...

Mediterranean climate prevails off the coast. Therefore, the high season lasts traditionally from May to mid-October. But even in the summer it is never too hot and stuffy. Average season temperature is from 25 ° C to 30 ° C.

Most popular destinations

Croatia is made up of two parts: the mainland and the Adriatic coast. For tourists most attractive is a narrow coastal strip. There are 3 main recreation areas each with unique offerings.

Istria peninsular with intriguing old architecture, an intricate fusion of several styles: Antiquity, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Its resorts are surrounded by magnificent pine forests dotted with olive groves. The Italians are numerous among local population which gives a special zest to an area. Blend of Italian and Croatian cultures creates something qualitatively new and off-beat.

Middle and South Dalmatia is the central part of the coast; it comprises many islands. There are 2 national and 1 natural parks, secluded bays with coves, rocky and pebbly beaches and pine trees growing directly by the sea.Photo 3.bp.blogspot.com

A novelty for local resorts is yachting. This recreation is being developed here at a frantic pace, marinas and yacht charter infrastructure is being developed. And every enthusiast of this sport can finish yachtsmen courses. And after passing the state exam, to obtain international qualification documents.

Only fabulous places and pristine nature. A lot of beaches and yacht moors are marked with a prestigious environmental award the FEE Blue Flag. This is certificate of quality of beach, which is granted by the Foundation for Environmental Education. This award is for only the best in the world, they have to take exam every year. The flag ensures at least that this place features free entry and clean water, which is tested on a weekly basis.
