Traveling to Croatia in July

July is the hottest month in Croatia and is recommended for vacations for those who love heat. The temperature exceeds 30 degrees daily, and sometimes even 35. Traveling to Croatia in July means traveling during the high season. There are more tourists, more events and the chance to meet new and exciting people.

However, it might be worth considering going in the second half of August or in September to avoid the hottest days. If you are not comfortable with such heat, for example due to personal preferences or health reasons. Trips to Croatia can be made from April to October.

Travel to Croatia tips

Croatia is a destination in Southern Europe, where the people carry Mediterranean culture and mostly love to enjoy life. The sea, olive oil, sun, beautiful nature, crystal clear water, warmth. Best Croatia travel tip is to take advantage of everything the country offers and enjoy it to the maximum.

Incidentally, it may come in handy to charm the locals with some phrases like "Dobar dan" (Good day) and "Kako si?" (How are you?), and "Dobro" (Good). Be sure to try Croatian beer and wine, which have a high status in terms of quality and taste.

Sea food is from another world, so if you're a fan of crabs and other sea fish, you'll really enjoy what Croatia has to offer on the table. Don't forget to try burek and cevapcici. The former is filo dough with meat, cooked in a special way, while cevapcici is similar to our meatballs, but seasoned a bit differently.

About Croatia

If you are traveling to Croatia, it is good to know some important aspects of the country. We've included geography and sailing, and of course food and drink. History can be explored on the spot, hidden in the charming Adriatic cities visited on our sailing tours.

Croatia today has a 4,800 km long coastline and over 1000 islands to sail between. However, the country's coastline is divided into two distinct parts by the short Bosnian coastline near Dubrovnik. The Croatian coast is divided into three regions, Dalmatia in the south and the Istrian peninsula in the north, with the Kvarner region in between. Kvarner, which is also an archipelago, includes islands such as Cres, Krk, Pag, Rab and Losinj.

Croatia is often referred to as the 'land of a thousand islands', and this is true. There are a total of 1185 islands along the coast, 67 of which are inhabited. During the summer months, Croatia has a very pleasant climate, especially for sailing. It is best to travel to Croatia in July or August. The winds are usually just right for sailing, between 6 to 8 m/s are the most common winds. There is rarely a lull, and rarely a storm.

Gastronomy in Croatia (traditional coast)

Croatia has recently become quite popular due to its favorable climate, good wines and wonderful food. However, the food tradition differs depending on where you are in Croatia. When it comes to Istria, the Dalmatian part and the Primorje region, the dishes are inspired by Italian cuisine, but prepared in a special Croatian way.

Croatian risotto

When visiting Croatia, it will be difficult to find a restaurant that does not have at least one dish of Italian origin on its menu. So it is quite normal that you will find dishes like pizza, various spaghetti dishes and risotto dishes. The most famous risotto dishes are octopus risotto, veal risotto, shrimp risotto with white wine and garlic. If you are lucky enough to stumble upon a restaurant that is good at cooking real traditional dishes, you will quickly realize that it is certainly the best risotto you will ever taste.

Spices and olives in Croatia

The most common spices in coastal Croatia and the islands are the normal Mediterranean spice mix. But there is certainly one that stands out, in Croatia it is olive oil and olives that dominate many dishes. When you take a tour of the islands, you quickly notice the large farms with olive trees. The resulting olive oil is some of the best you will ever find, it is a treat on its own, but when paired with the right food it explodes in flavor.

Just as olive oil has been produced seemingly forever in Croatia, so has salt, and this is why you will certainly notice that the Croatian food is very salty and aromatic in flavor. If you find yourself in the position to try the real Croatian olive oil don't skip it - it's super tasty.

Sea food on trips to Croatia

And of course, we can't skip the fish and seafood. "Sea food" is a very important part of the Croatian culinary world, especially along the coast. You will find fresh seafood everywhere, from oyster bars to fish restaurants. Favorite dishes are different grilled fish varieties such as tuna steak and golden parry, squid, octopus salad, mussels and other seafood. Anchovies are something you eat for lunch with bread and a splash of olive oil of course.

Croatian cheese

The delicacy that makes you smile every time you think about it is Pag cheese. Before every meal, a dish of bread, smoked ham and cheese is usually served in Croatia. Among all the Croatian cheeses the most desired and famous is the Pag cheese, from the small island of Pag near Zadar. The definition of this delicacy is that it is a hard, sheep cheese made on Pag; but this definition cannot come close to capturing the essence of the delicacy.

The cheese is unique thanks to the island's reputation as a salt production center. Intense winds that blow there spread the island's salt dust on everything, including the vegetation. That's why the only original Pag cheese can come from sheep living on the island and it's also the reason why the cheese is so very, very good.

Meat dish that is very famous in Croatia is "Pashticada" and is like the holy grail of Dalmatian-Croatian cooking. In Dalmatia, this beef is prepared with a very special sauce. The dish can be called most often Dalmatinska pašticada, Dalmatian pot roast or just as meat stew. For its preparation it requires a long time and most often it is served with gnocchi. If you find yourself in Split, visit restaurant FIFE which cooks Pashtcada wonderfully delicious for very cheap price.

Croatian wines have a long tradition

As for the wine, don't miss out on tasting native Croatian wine varieties! Inland the most famous wine varieties are Chardonnay, white and gray Pinot, Shkrlet and Grashevina. In Istria you can find Merlot, Mushkat and Vrbnicka Zlahtina. In Dalmatia one finds wonderful wine varieties such as Babic and Plavina in Primosten, Merlot in Drnis, Debit/Poship and Grk on Korcula, white Vugava and red Plavac on Vis, Stina on Brac and last but our favorite Plavac and Bogdanusa on the island of Hvar. The famous dessert wine variety is called Proshek.

FJAKA - "every little thing's gonna be alright"

One thing that cannot be left unmentioned about traveling to Croatia is the coffee culture of the Croatian people. You'll quickly notice that most coffee bars are crowded with people, and it's easy to fall into the pace known as "FJAKA". Fjaka is when you sit in the sun and drink your coffee and eat delicious Croatian desserts such as fritule, rozata and other cakes, going by the motto 'every little thing's gonna be alright'. The coffee served in most coffees is Espresso coffee with or without milk.
