Beautiful Croatia

croatia

What better place to go if you want to find live entertainment, animation, tunning natural surroundings, spotlessly clean sea and four thousand kilometers of coastline if not Croatia?

The golden rule in Croatia is “Be closer to nature!”. Some people who choose to come here enjoy the stunning environment of the country: the cleanest sea and beaches, where instead of ridiculous parasols you can find pine trees towering over the coast, where waters are transparent, warm and clean. Others choose the healing power of the land and water, as Croatia displays no less than 20 mineral springs and one field of unique mineral oil. But the most “radical” of tourists come to this country to cast off the hypocritical veil of civilization and fully merge with nature at one of the many nudist beaches in the country.

Pula Croatia

pula-croatia

Pula is the largest city in Istria, an important sea port and an international tourist center, located 6 km from the international airport.

Perhaps Pula is the most mysterious and unusual city in Croatia. This is due, above all, to its rich history, which strongly influenced the architecture, culture and tradition of the locals.

There is much to see here, but at the same time, Pula is hardly a sweet and pretty town. Rather, it is stylish and a bit cold, but the number of visitors make it a more accessible and pleasant place to be.

A little history

The first traces of human life in Croatia have been found near Pula. The very first mention of the town is found in the legend of the Argonauts. If we are to believe the legend, it was the Argonauts who founded this city, during their journey for the Golden Fleece. Proof of this can be found in the numerous objects discovered during archaeological digs. Perhaps Pula was founded by the Argonauts, but the connection to the ancient Greek culture is obvious to scientists. A few years before the Christian era, Pula got the status of Roman colony, so it was then that its rapid development began. One of the most interesting vestiges is the Arena, a huge amphitheater, one of the biggest in the world, perfectly preserved to this day. It has driven the interest of tourists and historians all over the world. This is not just a historical monument, but the site of numerous annual festivals held in Pula.

The Triumphal Arch of Sergius and the Temple of Augustus were also built in the Roman era. After the fall of the Roman rule, the city was successively ruled by Venetians, Austrians, Italians. Pula was only returned to Croatia in 1947. During the Dark Ages, many buildings were built, mostly typical of the medieval Roman-Gothic architecture. Many of them have survived to the present day and are a very important component of the modern image of Pula.
Transport in Pula

There are numerous bus stations in Pula, and the railway station is 1 km away from the city.

However, if you want to avoid traffic jams and uncomfortable rides in hot buses, the best way to explore Pula is by booking an airport transfer in advance. If you wish to gain even more freedom of movement, you can always employ a car hire service in Croatia.

Zadar Croatia

Traces of different cultures can be found on the Croatian peninsula of Zadar. Bearing the same name, Zadar, the most important city, situated at the heart of the peninsula, displays an ecclectic mixture of 19th century architecture, the ruins of the Roman Forum, the Roman Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the Church of the Holy Trinity, all these mixed in a colorful, rich picture.

Getting there

 The City is large according to Croatian standards, inhabited by more than 70 thousand people. The beauty and flavor of the city is largely due to the fact that it is located on the long narrow peninsula on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. Zadar has its own international airport, and reaching the city by bus or taxi is not a problem. However, the bus station is about 20-25 minutes from the old town.

Zadar is connected by a bus network to the airport, and also to other major cities of the country, as well as several towns in Bosnia and Herzegovina and some European capitals. A ferry line also links it to the Italian city of Ancona. When planning an independent car trip to Zadar, it should be remembered that in Croatia there are many toll roads, and the allowable amount of alcohol in the blood of the driver is 0%.

To make your trip to Zadar carefree and enjoyable, the most comfortable way of navigating around the city is by booking a Zadar transfer. And if you wish to enjoy the freedom of driving your own car, you can use the services of Croatia car Hire.

The history of Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, began long ago, back in the 7th century, when the two settlements of Kaptol and Gradec merged into one city. Most of the medieval constructions in Zagreb have been preserved intact. The north-eastern part of Zagreb, the Upper Town, still displays old buildings and cultural monuments, while the Lower Town has been rebuilt into modern districts.
