Croatia is a beautiful country that offers plenty of relaxation, as well as fun, either you're a solo traveler or you're on holiday with loved ones. Although most people think of the beach or water sports when they think of Croatia, a holiday in Croatia offers a complete range of sights and activities. There's the unsurpassed culture of historic towns like Varazdin in the north of the country, with its costumed Spancirfest street festival in August; historic Pula in Istria
, home to numerous ancient Roman buildings; and Trogir , situated on the Adriatic coast, with one of the best-preserved Old Towns in Central Europe. When you reserve an affordable holiday home in Croatia you also have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the Great Outdoors, kayaking in Dalmatia
, rock climbing in the Great Gorge of Paklenice, or hiking in the Risnjak National Park. Even skiing is possible in this beautiful country, at places like Bjelolasica near Karlovac and Mt. Sljeme just outside of Zagreb. It may not be the Alps, but it doesn't carry an Alpine price tag either so there is no harm in trying out a little winter fun here. Outdoor adventure in Croatia
Sports fans and those who love active holidays are in the right place in Croatia where they can explore the Mljet National Park (on Mljet Island) by bicycle. In the Paklenica National Park there are more than four hundred routes for all levels of ability, and near Baska on Krk Island you can combine a mountaineering vacation with an active family holiday by the sea in Kvarner
. Visit the island of Brac, a great place for diving, or try out the 650-meter-long water ski lift on Krk Island.

Nevertheless, you'll find downhill runs for persons of all abilities, as well as ski lessons and equipment rental, cross-country ski trails, snowboarding areas and even sleigh rides.
