My Croatia, a hot holiday destination!

The recent 2012 holiday season in Croatia broke all existing records !  

On one day alone, during July 35,000 visitors arrived in Split, many of them on their way to the Dalmatian islands, some embarking on yachts and cruises, others making their way to their holiday destinations, up and down the coast, while a record number are also choosing to spend time in this city, buzzing with the sound of summer, with festivals and entertainment of all descriptions, from Classical to Rock, not forgetting our wonderful Klapa Groups (A Cappella) that our visitors love, even if they can’t understand the words! Love it all!

During the summer months, more than 10 million visitors from neighbouring European countries pour in across the northern borders, others arrived my boat and ferry, while many travelled from afar by air from predominently USA, Asia, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. The word is spreading about one of the hottest holiday destinations!

The diversity within this small country is astounding! A land of 1000 islands, her magical nature and rich heritage have been ecologically well preserved. From the wondrous city of Dubrovnik in the south of the stunning Adriatic coastline and it’s Mediterranean climate, to the Istrian peninsula near the Italian border in the north, and Central  Continental  Croatia, land of baroque architecure, castles, rich culture, art and history, to the fertile lands of Slavonija in the east where tradition, folklore, and warm hospitality abound.

Each region has it’s particular cuisine specialities, and out tour itineraries always feature the freshest of sea food, olive oil, figs and cherries  along the coast, porcini and truffles of Istria, to the spicier foods of Slavonija, smoked meats, excellent salamis and cheeses, not to mention an exciting range of quality wines. White wines of the north and east,(malvazia, and grasevina) and red wines further south, Plavac of Dalmatia, are so enjoyable with the local cuisine.
