Croatia is a beautiful country located in southeastern Europe, bordered by Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. 

 

Croatia is a must-visit destination for any traveller looking for an unforgettable experience.

 

The country boasts a diverse landscape, from the stunning Adriatic coastline with numerous islands to the rugged Dinaric Alps and lush forests. The capital city is Zagreb, which is known for its historic architecture and vibrant cultural scene.

The numerous islands, stunning beaches, picturesque towns, and ancient ruins.

 

It’s also home to several national parks including the Plitvice Lakes National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The country has a rich cultural heritage with influences from its neighboring countries, such as Italy, Hungary, and Turkey. 

 

Also renowned for its wine and culinary traditions, which are heavily influenced by Mediterranean cuisine. 

 

The cuisine is delicious, ranging from seafood dishes along the coast to hearty meat stews in the inland regions.  With its diverse landscape, cultural and historical landmarks, unique cuisine, and wine, Croatia is an excellent destination for anyone seeking an unforgettable experience. 

 

 

Good To Know

Language:

The main language spoken is Croatian but English is very widely spoken. Depending on the region you’re in, you’ll also find many locals speaking German,  Italian and some french.

 

Plugs: The plugs are Type C and F. The standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50Hz. I recommend buying a universal adapter( you can use it everywhere in Europe).

 

Credit Cards & ATMs: You shouldn’t have any trouble using your credit card when visiting . However, keep in mind that many people prefer cash when it comes to small purchases. 

 

ATMs in all the cities and towns, and you’ll usually find them near gas stations, shopping centers, and bus and train stations.

 

Safety: This is one of the safest European countries for solo female travelers. However, you’ll still need to keep an eye out for pickpockets, so don’t carry too much cash and keep an eye on your bags. I always have my Travelon bag with closures.

Remember

*When is the best time to travel

For us, Off-season is always the best. October to April is Croatia’s low season.

Nowadays people are traveling at any season.

 

The high season is June to August, so be prepared for a sea of people.

 

When planning a trip to, it’s important to consider what you want to get out of your visit

If you’re looking for warm weather and a lively party scene, then high season is the best time to go. 

This is especially true if you’re planning to visit popular destinations on the Dalmatian Coast such as Dubrovnik (Explore the Walls) a UNESCO World Heritage Site that encircles the old city and offers panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea.) , Split (Get lost in the labyrinthine in Split, a Roman fortress that houses a cathedral, a temple, and a lively market.), and Hvar Town. 

 

On the other hand, if you prefer a more peaceful atmosphere and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and water sports, then the shoulder season may be a better fit for you.

 

During the winter months, you can experience Croatian culture and festivals in the capital city of Zagreb at off-season prices. It’s worth noting that the south of the country is generally warmer than the north, but the biggest temperature differences are between the coast and the interior. 

 

Coastal areas have warm summers and mild winters, while the interior has more continental weather patterns with slightly warmer summers and colder winters.
