What can you see in Croatia
Croatia attractions, top destinations selection? The sixth-largest Croatian island, Korcula is known for its dense forests, quiet coves, and secluded sandy beaches. Korcula Town charms visitors with its medieval squares and churches, but the island is also dotted with plenty of small towns and villages perfect for anyone looking for a quieter holiday. History and tradition are alive and well on the island; visitors can enjoy watching the Moreška sword dance, age-old religious ceremonies, and live performances of traditional folk music. Korcula also produces some excellent wine, including white wine made from pošip grapes, which are grown only here and on the Pelješac Peninsula.
No, this isn’t the place for those who travel to Croatia for a punch of excitement or for those who look at Croatia travel as a destination of art and history. This beach is one of those places where tainted souls find solace or where lovebirds get cozy in the elixir of love. In 2016, the Stiniva Beach, located in Vis Island, stole the title of Europe’s best beach awarded by European Best Destinations. It is a white shingle cove, totally secluded and blessed with the clearest of turquoise waters one can find. Nestled right between soaring cliffs on all sides and a vaulting blue sky above, Stiniva is unarguably one of the famous places to visit in Croatia. It is genuinely impossible to NOT fall in love with this beach. If there is Heaven on Earth, then this is perhaps the place.
The 10th Omis Guitar Fest will take place 17th to 22nd June 2020, with both guitar professionals from the local region and abroad taking part. The festival features masterclasses, workshops and concerts, and there is also a competition with various categories. If you’re expecting white linen service or quiet contemplation over a glass of wine, Buba isn’t the beachside bar you’re looking for. But for a youngish, party-minded crowd of locals and internationals, this is the place to congregate. DJs play throughout the day and nights, the music ranging from deep house to tougher variants and full on party mode.
Gornji Grad is the medieval core of Zagreb and translates as Upper Town. It developed as two separate towns, Kaptol, the seat of the Bishop, and Gradec, the free town where tradesmen and artisans lived. The towns merged in the 1770s to form the northern section of historic Zagreb. The focal point of Gornji Grad is the square around St. Mark’s Church, the parish church of Old Zagreb.

Lying off the Istrian peninsula, this archipelago of scattered pine-scented islets has been designated a national park (Nacionalni Park Brijuni). The largest island, Veli Brijun, is covered with beautifully landscaped parkland and is open to visitors year-round. The former President of Yugoslavia, Tito, used to entertain visiting foreign dignitaries here, and some of them brought him exotic animals as gifts, the descendants of which are now on show in the small safari park: elephants from India, antelopes from Zambia, and zebras from Guinea are the main attractions. The island is also home to an abundance of unique flora and fauna, along with evidence that dinosaurs once roamed here. There are two hotels located on the island, along with a golf course and the ruins of a Roman villa. To get here, catch the national park boat (reservations essential) from Fa?ana on the mainland, seven kilometers north of Pula.
