Things to Do and See in Croatia
- Go sailing. With over 1,000 islands and one of the most amazing archipelagos in the world, it's best to explore Croatia by boat. Try Mediterranean Yacht Charters to explore all the amazing islands. Try your hand at scuba diving, spear fishing, and snorkeling. With Mediterranean Yacht Charters you can go anywhere and follow your heart's desire on the beautiful Croatian coast line.
- Explore beautiful and scenic national parks. See cascading waterfalls, hike on forested trails, explore medieval fortresses, row a boat, climb a mountain, or walk through a secret WWII tunnel.
- Spend time at the beach: Relax, hang out, get a tan, or go fishing. The world (or at least the beach) is your oyster.
- Go rafting: The Cetina River is a popular spot to go white-water rafting.
- Zip lining: If you are not afraid of heights and have a need for speed, why not try zip lining over a beautiful forest. One of the fastest zip lines is in Omis, which travels at a speed of 65 kms an hour, sure to wake up even the sleepiest tourist.
- Visit Diocletian's Palace: Diocletian retired in Split, with a nice view of the Adriatic Sea, and made it a gated community. See the ornate bell tower at the Cathedral of Saint Domnius for some beautiful architecture. Only people are allowed inside the square city, so it can be a welcome break from the noise of cars and buses.
- Visit Zagreb, the capitol of Croatia. Visit Upper Town (Gornji Grad) with its Neo-Gothic cathedral and twin steeples, the Church of Saint Mark with a beautiful multi-colored tile roof, and a 13th century tower which you can climb up in for amazing views. For something that almost everyone can relate to, visit the Museum of Broken Relationships.
- Visit the Krka Monastery. This monastery is one of the most ancient Christian monasteries in the world. It is believed that Saint Paul and Titus might have visited this sit. It was officially founded in 1345 by the half-sister of an emperor and dedicated to the archangel Michael. You can visit the catacombs below to see early Christian writings and the remains of early Christians. It is also the Serbian Orthodox's oldest seminary, which recently reopened in 2001.
