The holidays are almost here and it’s once again that time of the year when you decide where and what to do with your time off. If you’re short on options on where to go for that unforgettable vacation, Croatia is the country of your dreams. Enthralling Roman ruins claim the land from coast to coast pairing up well with unrivaled ancient architecture and beautiful islands to present a nation that is a roller coaster of attractions. Speaking of which, today we put together a list of the best things to do in the Balkan heaven that is Croatia:

1) Taking a dip in Dalmatia

swimming

For swimming enthusiasts, endless miles of tasty waters await providing all manner of swimming grounds to cater to every level of experience. Be it with guides across shallow stretches, really deep diving in testing terrains or simply kicking back aboard decadent luxury vessels, fun knows no limits in these turquoise waters which can keep you occupied for weeks and months on end. Sun-kissed summers and perfect weather conditions, in general, make summer a real treat whilst revered spots in beautiful parks such as Krka and Kornati National Parks further accentuates the nation’s watery appeal.

2) Biking in Istria

Istria

Cycling might be a popular sport in Istria as it avails plenty of favorable terrains to put rubber to dirt but that’s actually not the best thing about the region. Lovely forgotten buildings of the medieval era gather across alluring landscapes hiding peeping trees and flashes of modernity that all intertwine into a magical vibe that is indescribably gorgeous. You can taste this combination of artistry with a ride from Rovinj to Pula before heading from Umag to Porec where a tranquil west shoreline lies in wait. From there, you can head to sleepy Motovun after traversing the enthralling Groznjan town that is poised attractively against a delightful hill.

3) Conquering the Adriatic sea

Gulet

With more than 1000 beautiful islands competing for your attention, Croatia’s offshore is in itself a major reason for your trip. The waters are best enjoyed from the comfort of your own private water taxi of which gulet cruises Croatia prove the very best in the best business offering experienced personnel who are familiar with hidden jewels like the back of their hands. You’ll get a taste of lavish life at sea as you have your mind blown away by the untamed nature of the Pakleni archipelago and tour other beautiful sand-laden islands such as Cres, Korcula, Hvar, and Brac among many others.

4) Rock climbing

Rock climbing

From climbing UNESCO-listed sites to trying your hand with real-life “Game of Thrones” settings, Croatia takes rock climbing to a whole new level. Look to Marjan peninsular for towering rocky terrains, Ciovo islands for less trying challenges and Paklenica National park for a treat of wavy rocks and windy trails. You’ll find all you need across various hotspots, including professional guides, so you don’t need to worry about equipment, tuition or transport.

And that’s not the end of it, no, not even close. Croatia keeps you going with overflowing to-do lists numbering in the hundreds and it would take a number of lifetimes to completely sample every treasure it holds within its borders. Whatever it is that ticks your boxes of an excellent vacation, you are sure to find it in Croatia.
