A small country with big variety!
Croatia is often called the “land of 1,000 islands” but is, in fact, so much more. Every step of the way the country, whose shape on the map is reminiscent of a bird with wings spread out, surprises with an almost unbelievable versatility.
The Adriatic coast is characterised by its hundreds of different shades of blue and charming, historical harbour towns. The interior captivates with spectacular nature; from rugged mountains to thundering waterfalls and picturesque lake landscapes. The famous Plitvice Lakes are just one of many nationalparks worth visiting.
Greeks, Romans, Venetians, Austrians, Hungarians and many others have left their architectural footprints on the land and throughout Croatia there is a large number of UNESCO protected areas: Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic with its massive city walls, Zadar with its Roman forum, the impressive sea organ and a sunset which Alfred Hitchcock called the most beautiful in the world. There is Korcula City, considered the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo, and Split with its impressive palace of the former Roman Emperor Diocletian, which today houses the entire old town of Split. Wherever you go there is much to discover!
Croatia’s islands, coast and inland are equally well suited for exploring on two wheels: Whether mountain biker, trekking cyclist or E-biker, an individualist or a fan of guided tours – the selection of bike tours, day tours, bike & boat tours or hotel & bike tours is vast.
Is nature the doctor’s order? Then off to Croatia!
