Why You Should Never Go To Croatia

It is no surprise as to why Croatia is becoming more and more popular as a holiday destination, boasting a 1,800km Adriatic coastline, an abundance of history and culture, stunning remote islands and hidden coves. The glorious gallery you'll come across when perusing through photos of this beautiful country may seem inviting, but we at Clickstay feel obligated to give you our trusted word before you make your mind up. Here are some things you might want to consider before booking your trip to Croatia...

1. There are no skyscrapers...

Despite being full of city beaches, don't expect to stumble upon the glorious backdrop of soaring skyscrapers like those of Copacabana in Rio de Janiero, or Barcelona beach in Barcelona. Instead, prepare to be greeted by traditional wall-stoned towns, topped with bright orange roofs and stone cobbled streets, like this one in Dubrovnik.

2. The towns are so old...

With a heritage dating back thousands of years, who knows when Croatia's epic ancient buildings may come tumbling down? Expect to come across some fascinating ancient ruins such as the Pula Arena, and Diocletian's Palace in Split, which dates back to fourth century AD, or this ancient Monestry on Lopud Island.

3. Locals like to be friends...

The locals love visitors, so prepare to be offered advice on great local spots for food and activities, or great hidden beaches and coves... I'm sure you'd much rather just be left alone!

6. FAR too many UNESCO sites...

With enormous national parks and nature reserves that take up almost 10% of the country, to historical buildings and towns that are centuries old, Croatia really is a city full of heritage and natural beauty. But with a whopping seven UNESCO sites, it's impossible to see them all in one go, and you'll just have to come back again.

7. Not enough beach...

With over 1,800km of Adriatic coastline, there's just never enough beach to go around.

Well, maybe Croatia isn't such a bad idea after all...
