Planning a trip to Croatia?
Croatia is a nicer country than most people think. Because it is known as a holiday destination. But there are many corners, especially for western tourists, that are still waiting to be discovered during an individual trip to Croatia.
Good roads, smooth ride
Croatia is not part of the EU, but when it comes to roads, the country is certainly an ideal destination.
As far as this criterion is concerned, you can be sure that you have no reason to be put off from traveling to Croatia by car.

High price-performance quality
You can discover many small and large picturesque places along the way. There are also great hotels and restaurants. In general, the price you have to pay for it will clearly pay off in tourist locations as well. In many cases even several times.
As for the coast, you can enjoy gorgeous views and quality that can be compared with the Italian Adriatic and the French Riviera. However, you pay a really modest price for this.

Look for great accommodations near the resorts
As a rule, the number of overnight stays in the large health resorts is several times higher than in the localities that are around them. You would have to try to stay in these overnight if that works. Usually you can get to the beautiful beaches just as easily the next day. Tourism is a common and very well developed product. You will therefore have no problem finding something easily.
If you want to spend time in a health resort without spending a lot of money, we would like you to stay in Opatia. This resort is in the immediate vicinity of Rieka, which is a much more famous and expensive resort. Opatia is quieter, and besides lower prices it also has many other major advantages. Here you can experience stiff hills with castles and villas in Mediterranean style.

If you like to combine a romantic summer vacation with a walk in the baroque gardens, then you are also in the right place. The sea promenade is also absolutely magical. Especially if you were to travel to Croatia just to spend time here, this would not be a bad idea at all. The charisma of the town is quite upscale. Even the usual people who have nothing to do with tourism often speak English, German, Italian.
This wonderful peninsula is also very much worth a trip to Croatia. You should also visit Pula there. This city is beautiful and very exciting from a historical and architectural point of view. No wonder, because it is an ancient capital of a rich Roman province. If you like towns like these with a Mediterranean character, you’ve come to the right place.
A total of two to three days would be enough to see the most important sights of the peninsula and to enjoy them in a relaxed manner.

While here, treat yourself to a trip along the wonderful Adriatic coast and head towards Dalmatia. The trip will take place very close to the water and is pure pleasure in itself. Take plenty of time for this. There are many picturesque and inviting bays. It is certainly worth it to stick with all of these for some time.

Split as a destination should not be missed during a trip to Croatia. This is a beautiful city that has the character of an industrial center at the same time. You should definitely visit the castle complex, which shows wonderful places and, above all, architecture and design in a Venetian style.
The majestic Spit city
Visit one of the small islands
While driving along the Dalmatian coast, be sure to visit one of the islands that are located near it. They can be reached from here via a bridge. The fish dishes and wine that are served here in some places can hardly be compared with anything else.
Dubrovnik can be called the pearl of the Adriatic coast. It is a UNESCO protected city. You can visit wonderful, well-preserved or fabulously restored objects and immerse yourself in the spirit of the many earlier epochs here.
