Croatia is a HOT Destination in Europe
Well, it’s warm in the summer and cool in the winter – but as far as popular destinations are concerned Croatia is HOT!
Why? Well there are many reasons –
- Croatia is one of several destinations made more popular by the HBO series Game of Thrones
- Croatia offers a terrific array of medieval cities
- Croatia offers some amazing small ship cruises (mostly from cruiselines you have never heard of)
- Croatia offers some of the most spectacular natural beauty to be found
Krka National Park is a popular place for hiking and enjoying the natural beauty of pristine waterfalls and more. On a recent cruise vacation we enjoyed a stop in the port city of Zadar (famous for it’s Sea Organ – a very unique piece of musical art). The Krka National Park was an offered excursion from Celebrity cruises so we checked it out and here’s what we found….
a beautiful forest populated by dozens of cascading waterfalls (too many and too vast to experience them all)
The hike was too short,..but it was beautiful
with some swimming possible…
in the waters just past the most beautiful of the falls in this area
Whether spending some time in port or staying in a hotel or nearby resort, the city of Zadar is a good place to spend some time shopping or dining. Actually I could not believe how affordable it was to purchase some great pastries!
There are some cool tours that allow you to experience the city by foot, bike, segway, kayak or e-scooter – or do something really exhilarating like going skydiving!
Yes…Croatia is beautiful with several national parks and other places of outstanding beauty, but there is so much more. Whether it’s an excursion while cruising on a mass market cruise ship, or a small ship cruise with several stops along the long Croatian coastline, or a fully independent yet structured tour incorporating several stops such as Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik & other parts of the interior of the country you can count on “Your friends….in the travel business” at EZTravelPad for sound advice and the ability to leverage our relationships to make sure that you have the best possible experience!
