KORCULA, an island in the central Dalmatian archipelago. Tranquil and rich, in culture and soil which gave life for centuries, ideal for a peaceful holiday escape – in one word Korcula.
The island was first settled by Mesolithic and Neolithic people, with profes of life in Vela Spila, near Vela Luka, one of the most significant archeological sights in Europe. Dark for its pine tree forest and so called Melaina Corcyra was a great supplier of timber for shipbuilding in history. One of the oldest legal documents, Statute of Korcula, describes the strive for autonomy and order. Unspoilt nature with beautiful coastline, coves and little islands, offer a possibility of always finding that private, peaceful spot. Locals are hard working people with modern lifestyle but care for tradition, very strongly tied to the sea and the land. Korcula is in terms of infrastructure a very developed island that offers everything tourist might need, and more, that peace and quiet you elsewhewre won't easily find.
For those who love exploring monuments, wandering on solitary beaches, or jostling amid the liveliness of a Mediterranean town, then Croatia will delight you. It is a land of discoveries, of pristine nature, of a brilliant new dawn and of a lifestyle so often imagined, so rarely attained. Croatia has 1,777 km of mainland Adriatic shoreline and no fewer than 1,185 islands, islets and reefs. Here, the tensions of life seem to fade into insignificance. In the rays of the setting sun as your lighthouse throws its lengthening shadow across the beach towards the sea, you will look towards the coastline and wish for nowhere else.
Istria is indeed a feast for the eyes. Its streams flow to the sea through deep valleys and gullies which bring to mind the ancient local myths about giants. Rolling hills overlook the fields and valleys with little towns perched on the peaks, recalling some old paintings. The view is splendid: white-topped mountains, lush wheat fields, plateaux, valleys, vineyards and olive groves on hillsides, and, finally the sea. As you get to know Istria you will notice more and more enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches, the babble of a stream, the blossoming cherries. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.
Croatia is blessed with the Old World’s most glorious coastline, miraculously escaping the route of over-development that has been undertaken by other Mediterranean holiday and vacation destinations. With its stunning 1,777 kilometers coastline, 1,185 islands lying offshore, picturesque medieval villages and Roman ruins, Croatia is a worthy rival to the mystical Greek islands – captivating and truly enticing. Croatia offers a wide range of activities for nature lovers – camping, mountain biking, hiking, rafting, scuba diving, and skydiving. There are plenty of museums in town for the art lovers, and there are a lot of places by the Croatian coast to go to, like Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Split, or Zadar. Zagreb is the capital of Croatia – it does not attract as much tourist as the abovementioned towns, but it is still worth a visit.
Mainland Croatia is diverse, yet very beautifuly. Central part of Croatia, covering areas of Gorski Kotar, Lika and Hrvatsko Zagorje. All these areas are continental, hilly and mountainous areas, and differ very much from the coastal croatian areas in terms of landscape as well as climate. These areas of Croatia are popular destinations for visitors that are not very keen on beaches, but prefer beautiful mountain views, walks and hikes, skiing in the winter as well as visiting numerous Baroque towns and palaces. Sparsely populated and beautifully preserved the Croatian inland offers peace, wonderful scenery, tasty, local specialities and great wines of the region.
