Must Know Facts

Best Time to Visit

Croatia has mild weather throughout the year. The climate here majorly follows 2 patterns: Mediterranean and Continental. It is Mediterranean on the coast with warm summers and easy winters and Continental inland when during summer it is slightly hot and extremely cold in winter with average temperature barely updating freezing from December to February. 
The peak season is during July and August and is the best time to visit the destination if you are looking for busy beaches and liveliness. Many locals and tourists make way to the beaches during this season. The day time temperatures can be roasting at this point of time however the sightseeing on the coast as well as inland promises a hell of an experience. Traveling in June or September can be more relaxing when it won’t be too crowded and there is significantly less pressure on facilities. 

From October to May the coasts may be extremely quiet and even the accommodation centers and tourist attractions shut down, preparing for winter. Autumn is actually is a good time to explore inland and national parks when the colors bloom from all around assuring amazing landscapes and even the trees are at their best.
 
In winters it is a pleasure exploring historic centers like Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. Snow is common here over this period of time but it sure does offer picturesque backdrop.  By mid-March arrives the Spring season, warm and dry weather when one can choose to go cycling, hiking or exploring cultural sites.

History & Culture

Croatia, at one time was the Roman territory of Pannonia, and was settled in the seventh century by the Croats. They changed over to Christianity between the seventh and ninth hundreds of years and received the Roman letters under the suzerainty of Charlemagne. In 925, the Croatians vanquished Byzantine and Frankish intruders, and built up their own free kingdom which achieved its crest amid the eleventh century. A common war followed in 1089, which later resulted the nation being conquered by the Hungarians in 1091. The marking of the Pacta Conventa by Croatian inborn boss and the Hungarian ruler in 1102 joined the two countries politically under the Hungarian ruler; however Croatia held its self-sufficiency. 

Following the defeat of the Hungarians by the Turks at the clash of Mohács in 1526, Croatia (alongside Hungary) chose Austrian archduke Ferdinand of Hapsburg as their ruler. After the foundation of the Austro-Hungarian kingdom in 1867, Croatia turned out to be a piece of Hungary until the crumple of Austria-Hungary in 1918 after its thrashing in World War I. On October 29, 1918, Croatia broadcasted its autonomy and participated in association with Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia to shape the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes. The name was changed to Yugoslavia in 1929. 
At the point when Germany attacked Yugoslavia in 1941, Croatia turned into a Nazi manikin state. Croatian Fascists, the Ustachi, butchered endless Serbs and Jews amid the war. After Germany was defeated in 1945, Croatia was made into a republic of the recently reconstituted Communist country of Yugoslavia; in any case, Croatian patriotism held on. After Yugoslavian pioneer Josip Broz Tito's passing in 1980, Croatia's requests for freedom expanded in force. 

In 1990, free decisions were held, and the Communists were vanquished by a patriot party driven by Franjo Tudjman. In June 1991, the Croatian parliament passed an announcement of freedom from Yugoslavia. A half year of concentrated battling with the Serbian-ruled Yugoslavian armed force pursued, guaranteeing a huge number of lives and wreaking mass demolition.

Culture of Croatia:

Croatia's rich social legacy can be found not just inside the various exhibition halls, displays and chapels all through the nation (a significant number of which show up on the UNESCO World Heritage List) but also in assorted melodic, film, move and theater celebrations and other social occasions that occur consistently.
In spite of being a little nation, Croatia has upwards of seven locales on the UNESCO World Heritage List and ten Intangible Cultural Heritage components recorded on the UNESCO List. Croatia is positioned fourth on the planet in the UNESCO list for its immaterial legacy, after China, Japan and Korea.  A list of the majority of Croatia's museums that can be visited during the time can be found on the site of the Museum Documentation Center. The summer conveys additional social life to the Croatian beach front territory, offering an entire scope of jazz celebrations, shows and conventional occasions. Notwithstanding, an incredible number of occasions occur consistently, including rock, pop and traditional shows, film celebrations, theater creations and presentations.
