Holidays to Croatia are increasing, with Europeans making the most of the low costs and the great resorts, with it proving increasingly popular among stag groups. What is sometimes forgotten is that this is easily one of the most stunning countries in the world, with the Plitvice lakes national park simply breath-taking. If you do visit Zagreb at any point, then I strongly recommend having a read of my list of things to do in Zagreb, containing the likes of Mount Medvednica and the museum of contemporary art. While Zagreb holds the title of capital, it hasn’t always been the way, with both Nin and Varazdin having previously been the capital of the country. For British television watchers, you may be surprised to find out Adrian Chiles is actually half Croatian, making the football matches between the two quite a difficult subject. In fact, talking of football, Croatia has some pretty big names on their cards, including the likes of Luka Modric and Mario Mandzukic. You should try to visit Vinkovci to learn about the history, but the history will come as a shock for many (even more so than the Adrian Chiles nationality split). It is actually the oldest inhabited city in Europe, dating back a remarkable 8,000 years. So a museum visit becomes even more critical when passing by. Of course, the national parks and waterfalls should be right top of your list.
