Croa­tia| DES­TI­NA­TION


Upscale Living Magazine - - Contents - | By Jarone Ashke­nazi

Sit­u­ated at the cross­roads of Cen­tral and South­east Europe, on the Adri­atic Sea, Croa­tia is an in­cred­i­ble fu­sion of sea, is­lands and high­lands. Croa­tia is the one-of-a-kind des­ti­na­tion for di­verse trav­el­ers, whether it’s fam­i­lies, friends, honey­moon­ers, ro­man­tic get­aways, or those look­ing for the ul­ti­mate party ex­pe­ri­ence, out­door ad­ven­tures, or sim­ply just re­lax­ation.

While the ma­jor­ity of vis­i­tors’ flock to Dubrovnik and the is­land of Hvar in the Dal­ma­tia re­gion, Croa­tia is home to 10 re­gions – Is­tria, Kvarner, Dal­ma­tia-Zadar, Dal­ma­tia-Šibenik, Dal­ma­tia-Split, Dal­ma­tia-Dubrovnik, Lika-Karlovac, Cen­tral Croa­tia, Slavo­nia and the City of Za­greb - and thou­sands of neigh­bor­ing is­lands span­ning a coast­line of 6278km 3,625 miles, each of­fer­ing moder­ately con­ti­nen­tal cli­mates and sev­eral ecore­gions. In the fall months, the weather is mild al­low­ing vis­i­tors to still en­joy all the sites and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in the coun­try and has the added ben­e­fit of not hav­ing as many tourists and be­ing busy. Along with the col­ors of fall, and fes­ti­vals cel­e­brate ev­ery­thing from food to movies, mu­sic and sail­ing, ex­pe­ri­ences in Croa­tia range from 10 UN­ESCO sites, lux­ury ho­tels, eight vast na­tional parks, el­e­gant city cen­ters, and a vast num­ber of mu­se­ums.
