This jewel of a country is hidden in the southeast corner of Europe. Croatia is a country of 1000 islands and 2000 km of coastline known for its pristine nature, crystal clear sea, local specialties, olive oil and wine.
Night life here goes hand in hand with the hidden beaches and mysterious coves which can only be reached by boat. This means that you chose what you want to do, how you want to do it, and when.
Diversity is what makes Croatia special whether it is natural or cultural. Everything is close and accessible. Breath-taking nature, fishing villages, medieval fortresses, nature parks, clean beaches and the sea are waiting just for you.
The climate varies from mildly continental in the interior, to Mediterranean on the coast.
Average continental temperatures are 0-2ºC in January and 19-23ºC in August while the coast measures 6-11ºC in January and 21-27 ºC in August.
The Adriatic coast is one of the sunniest in the Mediterranean with more than 2600 sun hours annually. Sea temperatures are 25-27 ºC in summer.
Croatia is the most diverse ecologically preserved area in Europe with the cleanest sea and the biggest number of national parks in relation to the area which it covers.
Croatia has 8 national parks: Kornati, Krka, Paklenica, Plitvice Lake, Brijuni, Mljet, Risnjak and North Velebit; and 10 protected nature parks which can be accessed by an hour long drive from Biograd.
There are 7 locations on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List: Dubrovnik, Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, city of Trogir, the Cathedral in Šibenik, Stari Grad on the island of Hvar and the before mentioned Plitvice.
If you wish to visit one of these places during your stay in Biograd, Ilirija travel can organize everything for you.
