Croatia is a Mediterranean country with mild winters and hot summers, with a sailing season that starts in the second part of March to April and lasts to November – with its peak in July and August. This long sailing season offers different experiences for sailors of all kinds – those experienced will appreciate colder months with stronger winds and more excitement, while those who fancy calm seas will enjoy the summer breeze and slow sailing. September and October are the months for true sunset lovers. The powerful and intense colours of the sun setting into the Adriatic are hard to forget.
Fresh seafood, domestic and organic food and vegetables, fresh seasoned salads, and heavenly good wine. Do we need to bring up more arguments? Not only Croatian cuisine is very delicious but it is also heterogeneous due to the variety of ingredients used in different regions, but also due to an influence of the other cultures and cuisines brought here throughout the past. What is an absolute must try is: dalmatian smoked ham called “prosciutto”, usually served with cheese as an appetizer, “brudet” – seafood stew traditional fisherman's dish, “black risotto” made of squid – a creamy delight, or for the meat lovers – “pasticada” – long cooked beef meat marinated with herbs.
Did you know? Locals in Dalmatia traditionally drink “bevanda” during lunch. It is a beverage made of home-made vine mixed with non-carbonated water. It is also believed this is beneficial for health in general.
PLACES TO VISIT
About 2000 km of coastline and in some parts, more than 3000 years of history, means almost every village on the coast or at islands has its own story. Did you know? One of the Croatian islands from above looks just like a fingerprint. And exactly the fingerprint was firstly used to solve the crime by Ivan Vucetic – born Croatian, originally from Hvar island. Just nearby Hvar, you can also find the island of Korcula – that is believed was the birthplace of Marco Polo.
Not only Croatia is rich in culture and history, but it also offers quite a lot of natural gems that are worth visiting.
You might say: “Ok, you got me! How and when to go sailing in Croatia?!”
