If you’re dreaming about a summer spent dipping your toes in the Adriatic, unfortunately you’re not alone. Summer, specifically July and August, is peak tourist season on the coast and islands of Croatia, so ... Read more
though you’ll likely enjoy the nice weather, you’ll have to endure exorbitant hotel rates and crowds, crowds, crowds. Summer is better spent inland at cities like Zagreb, where you’ll encounter an entirely different story: fewer tourists, more bargains, and cooler temperatures. The coast is much more pleasant in late spring and early fall when air and water temperatures are still warm, but places are cheaper and less crowded. Winter is also not bad along the coast, though it gets cold and snowy inland.

I've been there a lot of times and I really liked it. People are nice and kind and everything fell alright. It's not a very big town but I can feel the warmth in people which I really like.
We tried some drinks and food and we loved it. It was so delicious and different. I would like to go again just because of the drink and the food haha!
But if you ever find yourself in Croatia, visit Slavonija which is so underrated and deserves more fame.

We wanted to visit Slavonija for a very long time, so last summer we finally did it. We were already saw a lot of places in Slavonija, so this was of one the few it got left.
But we really love it. It's not a very big city but it's not small either.
They got a lot of shops, restaurants, bars, some really nice hotels; everything.
Most of them knows how to speak English, but if they don't then they speak German...but I think you will not find Croatian who does not speak English that easily.
But yeah, everyone goes to the sea coast, but I recommend you to visit Slavonija, too...especially because it's not too crowded.

We mainly went to this city for a home hosted visit on our river cruise. These visits are some of our best memories of the tour as you get to interact with the people of the country. We went to a small farm and had lunch. Even though they spoke very little English ( and we spoke no Croatian) we were able to communicate - using a little German helped.
