There are many ways in which one can spend a spring holiday in Croatia, and no matter which facet of this country you choose to explore, you will be no less than impressed by its unique beauty. Relaxing on the white beaches or discovering the traditions and authentic customs here, exploring great cities or admiring the local culture and history, these are all aspects that make a spring holiday in this country one to remember. The many facets of Croatia are probably best represented by its white sandy beaches, bathed by the Adriatic Sea, which are simply amazing and make anyone's spring more joyful and fun.
Zlatni Rat in Bol, on the island of Brac, is one of Croatia's most beautiful beaches. The Zlatni Rat beach has a spectacular sand bar known as the Golden Horn. The bay here is 580 meters long and has a unique shape. The beach offers restaurants, cafes and plenty of water sports. The nightlife is also great here. In the evening there are plenty of open air bars and nightclubs to enjoy. An interesting facet of this country is the Velebit, a haven for young bears, where you can see bears as you would see them in the wilderness. This sanctuary in Kuterevo is the only one of its kind in Croatia. This was set up just over a decade ago as a home for young bears that were victims of hunters or were brought in for entertainment. It is now managed by expert volunteers who guide visitors in this vast region. From another point of view, the Pula Arena, also known as the Pula amphitheater is a dramatic historic Roman amphitheater in Croatia, located on Istria, a peninsula of Croatia. The Pula Arena was built during the reign of the Emperor Vespasian, who was also responsible for the creation of the Coliseum. The theater was built to fit approximately 20,000 spectators. Pula hosted gladiator fights during the Romans and Knight tournaments in the Middle Ages. Now, the amphitheater is restored, having a capacity of 5,000 people. The shows of the Pula Arena are nowadays much more docile in nature and usually consist of operas and film festivals.
The many displays of Croatia
Jama Grotta Baredine is an underground cave that is an exciting attraction. It is full of stalactites and stalagmites and it is located in the Nova Vas on Istria. Mysterious subterranean sculptures have been created over time by the slow dripping of water from the ceiling of the cave. Some of these stones resemble recognizable faces or objects, such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. There is also a 66 meter deep crater which has several underground lakes. At the entrance of the cave, there is also a museum with pottery that was found in the cave. Wondering among this country's attractions sounds good? In Split there is a daily market open daily from 7 am to 1 pm. Here you can find the best deals on fruit, vegetables, olive oil, local brandies and other foods and drinks. You will also find utensils, clothing, boats, electronics and other bargains. A visit to Dubrovnik is the peak of a spring holiday in Croatia. This town, also known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, is one of the world's most beautiful destinations, when it comes to both cultural heritage and holiday fun. In addition to the richness and diversity of the history here, Dubrovnik is a city of high culinary delights and a beautiful natural environment.

And the best part is that you can do this with no experience necessary. You will create memories you will never forget from your spring holiday home in Croatia.
