Croatia - moving around the country
The second largest airport in the country is Osijek. It accepts a small number of international flights, but is very popular among tourists. It is best to book a transfer from the airport in advance, since a taxi ride will cost several times more. On the territory of the airport there are Duty Free shops, bank offices, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as places for rest and parking. Pula is the most popular seaside airport. It is located 7 kilometers from the city. You can get there by taxi or by transfer. The airport runways are designed for receiving such larger aircrafts as Boeing and Ilyushin il 86. The carrying capacity of the airport yearly is at least half a million passengers.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Croatia
A huge number of festivals take place in Croatia every year. Most of them are held at various venues in Zagreb. In April, the Music Biennale, a festival of classical music and folk culture, is held in the capital. For several days, musicians and orchestras perform on different venues. The event ends with a grandiose gala show. In June, it is worth to visit the Flora Art exhibition in Zagreb. There, rare plants, trees and flowers are presented to the public, as well as an accompanying equipment for gardening. In autumn, Zagreb hosts the International Festival of Puppet Theaters, Jazz Days and the International Fair. In Rovinj, in early May, the famous Rovinj-Pesaro Regatta, which gathers athletes from different countries, starts. From the 14th century, competitions for shooting arbalets are traditionally held on the small island of Rab. Everyone can try their hand. Another bright event is the Dalmatian corrida in the mountain village of Radoshich. Animals are fighting not with a bullfighter, but with each other. The show is pretty cruel, but extremely impressive. The carnival in Dubrovnik is one of the most spectacular processions in the whole country. It starts on the main street of the Old Town, which is famous for its stone panoramic vaults. The lane has a limestone pavement. On the first day of the carnival, entertaining performances for children are arranged. At the rest of the time, costumed processions pass through the streets of the city. The carnival ends with a party that lasts until the morning.
