A Staycation in Croatia is Staylicious

Because of Memorable holidays

When you decide to go to Croatia, you probably heard from friends who had already visited our country what you could see and do in Croatia.

That’s is precisely the goal of the croatia2go platform.
We want to be a useful guide through Croatia.

Before coming to Croatia, it is good to know something about our lovely country.

Croatia become an independent state only 30 years ago. Before was part of the former Yugoslavia, and together with neighboring Slovenia, its westernmost part.

Croatia was never part of the ‘Balkans‘ because its historical heritage was linked to the Austro-Hungarian monarchy from the north and west, Venice from the south, earlier to the Roman Empire.

We have singled out many topics to help you plan where to start your Croatia vacation and which cities to visit.

CITIES

Famous cities in Croatia

Because of A Crystal Adriatic Sea

ADRIATIC

Beautiful coast with 1244 islands

Croatia is a Mediterranean country, so the Adriatic Sea’s influence is considerable and a real Croatian tourism magnet.
People are very friendly and hospitable while the Adriatic sea is crystal clear.

Whether you are looking for luxury accommodation or are a fan of campsites, Croatia has a lot to offer.

Meet people, taste excellent food and fine wines, see long and noisy waterfalls in national parks, try rafting rivers and canyons through untouched nature or walk and explore many sunny islands.

During the summer season, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy various music festivals and DJs.

An excellent connection between the coast and the islands and its number, over 1000, makes Croatia one of the most beautiful summer vacation countries.

Sailors know the Adriatic Sea best, its marinas, ports, and harbors, and they are excellent promoters of Croatian beauty.

The best time to visit Croatia

The best time to visit Croatia is definitely from the beginning of April till the end of October.

In April is excellent. Springtime has a pleasant temperature and lovely sunny days. If you are not a swimming and sunbathing fan, that would be the best, as the prices are better, and there is no crowd.

There are many regattas in April, so boaters are the most frequent Croatia guests at that time.

From May until the end of October, Croatia is a real mecca for tourists. Beautiful sunny days, warm weather, even hot, are the features of summer in Croatia.

The idea that leads us to croatia2go.com is introducing you to everything you can see, visit, taste, or learn about Croatia.

Because of Amazing National Parks

Croatia2go was designed for you according to possible interest. We have listed all eight national parks and all nature parks.
From the beautiful Mljet island and National Park, all the way to Krka National Park and further on Plitvice Lakes, maybe even to Kornati and Brijuni. Croatia’s natural beauty is widely known globally and is a magnet for many tourists who visit our country.

Choose the national park you want to visit. Almost certainly, it will be the Plitvice Lakes National Park or Krka.
These two parks are not far from each other, but the advice is Plitvice Lakes from Zagreb to the coast or nearby Zadar.
From Split, it’s a slightly longer drive, and Split is closer to Krka National Park.
The nearest city to Krka is Sibenik, where don’t miss the visit to the cathedral of St. James, which is under the protection of UNESCO.

Visiting national parks better arrange in advance and buy tickets online. We recommend local licensed guides in the parks.

NATURE

We dedicated many articles to nature, the Adriatic Sea islands, and old towns that look like museums because there is either a fascinating historical building or a museum on every street.

On every of Croatia’s old cities corner, you’ll find remains of Croatia’s turbulent past or many archaeological sites from the Roman Empire, such as Salona near Split or Vespasian’s amphitheater in Pula.

The Dalmatian coast is undoubtedly attractive with its more than 1000 islands, countless bays, and beaches.

HISTORY & UNESCO

Historical importance

Because of Great Food, divine wines, the best olive oils

Croatia has made an incredible contribution to the fashion industry, the necktie.

We call it a ‘kravata‘, because of the brave Croatian soldiers (Croats) in Napoleon’s troops, who had a scarf tied around their necks in a specific way.

The KRAVATA /the Tie entered the fashion history and stayed for good. It is unthinkable today to see any businessman without a tie. It forms part of the uniform of the modern man.

A European Union politician once said; Don’t forget, Croats are holding us all by the neck!
