  1. Hvar town

This little town can be a hub of at least 20000 people everyday. Although this town is little, it does have numerous restaurants with good food as well as lots of good hotels. The things in this town are expensive though, and so it is better that you carry lots of cash if you plan on staying. Tourists enjoy swimming in the beaches or just wander about the streets filled with gothic palaces and beautiful walls.

  1. Plitvice lakes National park

One of the most beautiful sights in the country, the national park is home to 16 parallel lakes all fed through their own waterfalls full of mineral enriched waters and breathtaking flocks of wildlife, including birds, marine life and butterflies. The park is huge, and so the lakes may take hours to explore altogether, but one may even save time by taking the bus or boat. The climb takes about two hours and the descent takes three, so it is better to take the bus while climbing and the boat on descent to save the effort on climbing.

  1. Trakoscan castle

Boasting one of the most breathtaking sights around, the trakoscan castle is just over 80 km from the city of zagreb, northwest of it. The castle was first discovered in 1334, but its construction date is unknown. Today, almost none of the castle is in its original state, but has been converted to an english romantic garden full of trees and artificial lakes.

Be sure to visit these places if you get a chance to visit croatia. There are also various other sights to see, so be sure to check them out as well, we guarantee a visit to this wonderful land would be a journey to remember.
