Croatia - moving around the country
The use of bicycles is pretty much popular in Croatia. You can save considerably by renting them especially since there are special cycling routes in the country. In the absence of bicycle routes, it is also safe to move along motor roads, since Croats have great respect for bicycle riders. Please note that it is possible to travel by plane within the country. Airports can be reached by taxi, by shuttle bus or by bus. In this case, it is worth considering that not every airport terminal is run by city buses. The railway network in the country is not very developed, but it covers the most remote regions. Within the city, you will usually find trains with second class carriages. For longer trips, it is possible to buy a ticket for an express or comfortable first-class train. In which case, it is advisable to buy tickets in advance.
Nature and parks of Croatia
The Brioni Archipelago is one of the most picturesque places in all of Europe. It is a group of islands in the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Istria. There is another national park of the country. In total, the archipelago embraces 14 small islands. Unlike most other lands, Brioni are covered with plains and vegetation, which has made them attractive for living since the Bronze Age. Today, you can find traces of the ancient Roman civilization on the islands. The landmarks include the temple of Venus, the Roman prison, and the Roman palace built 2 thousand years ago. All year round, you can see flowering oleanders, as well as myrtles, eucalyptus, rosemary, oaks, and olive trees. Currently, locals work to create an ecologically clean resort on basis of the archipelago.
