There is no shortage of beaches to visit in Croatia. Despite the reputation of Zlatni Rat Beach as one of the best places to visit in Croatia, many of the country’s most beautiful beaches remain hidden and known only to locals. If you truly want to take in the splendor of Croatia's beaches, then you will have to go where the locals go. Some of these hidden wonders include Punta Rata (located in the village of Brela, near the town of Makarska), Pasjaca Popovici (in the village of Popovići, which is a 40-minute drive from Dubrovnik), and Mala Kolombarica (located about 10 miles south of the city of Pula).
Featured prominently in the HBO television series 'Game of Thrones', Dubrovnik is known by fans of the show, for being the backdrop of the fictional King's Landing. One of the best ways to check out the city's many historical localities, the famous City Walls, Old Town (which is a UNESCO Heritage Site), and take in the sights, is to go on a Game of Thrones tour, which is becoming one of the most sought-after tourist attractions in the whole of Croatia.
One thing to remember when visiting Croatia is that most tourist attractions and sites remain closed on national holidays. However, such holidays are when many of Croatia's most exuberant festivals take place.
The InMusic Festival in Zagreb that takes place annually in the month of June is Croatia's biggest music festival. It's a great occasion to catch up on prominent Croatian and international musical acts.
The Pannonian Challenge, which is also held in June, in the Eastern city of Osijek, is perfect for extreme sports adventure lovers.
The Motovun Film Festival is a worthy addition to your Croatia vacation itinerary.
The world-renowned Rijeka's Carnival, which takes place in mid-February, is capable of giving even the Rio Carnival a run for its money. Although the main event is a parade where people flaunt extravagant costumes and masks, the festival is also marked by numerous balls and fun parties.
When choosing from Croatia travel packages before your trip it is important that you remember to choose those Croatia vacation packages that let you enjoy at least one festival while you’re in the country.
There are eight national parks in Croatia, each of which is distinctive and charming in their own right.
