Croatia’s moderate temperatures, bright blue seas, breath taking scenery and rich history make it a perfect holiday destination. With a growing number of flights in to Zagreb and Dubrovnik, the ability for Europeans and long haulers alike to experience the delights of this hidden gem means it’s never been easier to holiday and relax there.
There are the big cities and towns for those who wish for a more vibrant holiday and copious amounts of smaller towns and hamlets for the less energetic holiday maker. One city which offers both the peace of a smaller town and the vibe of a city is Biograd na Moru.
Biograd nestles in northern Croatia and comes with a rich and noble history. The name of the city when translated from it’s Slavic origin, means “the white town on the sea”. Once a place where the kings roamed in from the 10th century onward, Biograd has proved to be a city that would feature time and time again, most recently, in Croatian War Of Independence when the town was sustained incredible damage.
Now, a thriving city with a booming tourist economy, Biograd has everything a holiday maker could ask for.
There are many different kinds of accommodation available, suitable for families, couples or groups. Independent hotels, guest houses and holiday apartments are all evident in the city. There are newly built apartments within Biograd, which offer the option of a more tranquil holiday at the pace of the individual. Highly finished, furnished and sought after, such apartments enable the holiday maker the ability to holiday in their own style, perfect for honeymoon couples, or families with a variety of needs to address.
The real jewel of the city, has to be the quayside. With an impressive marina, selection of eateries and bars and breath taking sunsets, it provides an eclectic backdrop for a great evening out. The beach is only a pathway away and shaded with mature trees, the waters blue and the ambiance European and friendly.
Biograd offers something for everyone and particularly caters for the more sea loving person. A boat show is held annually and there are approximately 50 regattas in the average year. For the keen fisherman or indeed, sun worshiper there are around 300 cruisers available for hire also, offering opportunities to make the holiday a memorable one, with a picture of that perfect catch.
For those who enjoy a holiday away from the commercialized centres of the world, where culture, history, scenery and relaxation are all there to be enjoyed, a holiday taking in the pleasures of Biograd is bound to provide some fabulous memories for those looking to travel. Excellent accommodation in a variety of styles is the norm in Biograd, as are the friendly locals who are fully aware of how to make a holiday one to remember. But remember, it won’t be a hidden gem forever, so if you are considering Biograd, you may want to go sooner, rather than later.
