What to do in Croatia?

In Croatia, the industry of extreme tourism and active recreation is developing intensively. It is not surprising that Croatia is traditionally famous for yachting - there are about five hundred harbors, fully equipped marinas with restaurants, spas, mini markets and weather maps for sailing and yachting lovers on its territory.

The Croatian Adriatic coast seems to be created for swimming - the sea is calm and warm, the water is surprisingly clear(up to transparency at a depth of several meters). There are special areas for swimming and bathing on the official beaches. There are no strong currents in the Adriatic Sea, and due to the low low tide, high waves are very rare.

Windsurfing enthusiasts are delighted with the intense movement of air masses on the coast, for whom nature itself has created excellent conditions for an unforgettable vacation. True connoisseurs of their craft have certainly heard about the ideal "Khvar Canal" separating Fr.Hvar and Fr Brač, where constant winds blow, amplified by natural conditions. Favorable circumstances for windsurfing in Croatia are formed by nature in Medulin, where there is an excellent surfing school, as well as in other coastal cities of the country, where you can easily do your favorite type of vacation by renting the necessary equipment.

Snorkeling and diving are on a par with windsurfing in Croatia. If snorkeling in Croatia can be enjoyed only along the shores of wonderful beaches, then diving in Croatia, including night diving, is possible in almost the entire water area of ​​the Adriatic Sea. Experienced instructors from numerous Croatian diving schools will teach beginners the basics of scuba diving, and therefore the underwater world of the Adriatic is full of various sea sponges, corals and lush vegetation, among which cat sharks, barracudas, shoals of cod, sea eels, lobsters, anemones swim, will not remain an unsolved page ...

The excellent natural landscapes of the Balkan country beckon to make not only interesting, but also useful hiking, cycling and horseback riding in the surroundings of all resort towns. Some of the best trails for walking are the "Gorski kotar", which runs through the Istra forests and the hilly "Hrvatsko zagorje", which leads through the vineyards. However, horseback riding in Medulin, mountain hikes in Rabac, and hiking in the Paklenica and Risnjak National Parks are equally popular.

Fans of mountaineering and rock climbing will be able to take their souls away on Mount Platak, near Opatija, on the mountains around Basque, on the heights of about. Krk and Paklenica National Park.

Fishing in Croatia requires a permit. Fishing is possible throughout the Adriatic Sea, although there are some restrictions in the area of ​​the national reserves of Kornati, Krka, Mljeta, etc.

Cerovac caves are a system that includes three speleological objects - Gornya Pechina (Upper Cave), located at a depth of 1250 meters, Donya Pechina (Lower Cave), which is a system of horizontally located halls and corridors at 2400 meters. In addition, there is also the Middle Pechina (Middle Cave), which looks like a cross between a cave and a pit.
