Croatia has so much to offer, from its spectacular coastal scenery to its exciting history. Due to its location on the east side of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia embodies a blend of different cultural spheres, built up over centuries, including both western and eastern cultures. There are even seven UNESCO world heritage sites to visit. Here are Goway’s 5 top reasons to visit Croatia in the fall.
- Croatia is a bargain, even in high season. In fall, prices on everything from accommodation to food drop even more, stretching your dollar even further.
- The weather is still great, but the crowds are (mostly) gone so you’ll sometimes get that sense of having an entire town almost to yourself.
- The freshest food is in abundance, and the new wines have just arrived, making Croatia a food and wine lovers paradise. Mediterranean traditions and seafood are significant to Croatian dishes, while its proximity to Central Europe means it benefits from the region’s filling comfort food. For wine lovers, Croatia’s Dingač is a favourite red wine, while Malvazija is a great white wine.
- Greek, Roman, Slavic, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian monuments are waiting for you to explore, along with over 1,200 islands dotted with small yet majestic towns.
- Truffle season is in full swing from mid-September to early November. The county of Istria is famous for truffles. Its forests boast three types of black truffles, and the Motovun forest is one of the most important areas for white truffle hunting in Croatia.
