Croatia does not like mass tourism
Every year, more and more tourists come to Croatia, but instead of creating more space for tourism, one wants to avoid mass tourism. Croatia attaches great importance to its authentic character and wishes to like it. Here you will find plenty of places to go to rest and taste the real Croatian life, and so will stay. For example, nothing else can be built at the sea to protect the beautiful coastline.
As we mentioned in the introduction, Croatia has 8 national parks and 11 nature parks. From lakes and waterfalls to archipelago and mountain ranges, in Croatia you will find it all. The scenery is very diverse and full of unspoilt nature, beautiful beaches, rare flora and fauna, the authentic countryside with a wide range of agrotoerism and let’s not forget the unique underwater world. Because of the crystal clear sea, Croatia is also an ideal destination for a diving holiday.
Affordable holiday country
Despite the increase in popularity, Croatia is still noticeably affordable. Especially the prices for accommodation are favorable. The wide range of private accommodation means that you can rent an apartment for 4 people at the coast for 60 euros per night during the high season. The average price for a camping site is not much higher or lower than in other popular camping countries in Europe.
Prices for groceries are relatively high in Croatia (comparable to prices in the Netherlands and some products even higher) but prices in restaurants and cafés are surprisingly low. You can already enjoy a pizza and a drink at the sea for only 10 euros per person if you stay outside the most popular seaside resorts.
There is plenty to do, also for children
Croatia is not a country full of amusement parks, but you will not even miss it. Here you can discover a different beach every day with children, there is plenty of room for children to play free and there are many child-friendly campsites, hotels and resorts with facilities for the whole family. Even if you are not a resort guest, feel free to spend the day with your family and use the facilities (usually access to the resort is just free). Each region has its own attractions, national parks and other activities for an exciting vacation. For example, take a day trip by ferry to a beautiful island, or spend a day cycling or kayaking. And then we have not even mentioned the beautiful cities and places with their own markets, festivals, palaces, city walls, forts and other impressive buildings. And in all tourist places you will find nice shops, stalls, child-friendly restaurants, playgrounds, etc. to entertain the kids.
