Climate in Croatia

With around 2,600 hours of sunshine per year and countless wonderful hiking opportunities, Croatia is an ideal destination for active holidaymakers. The coast has a Mediterranean climate with mild winter temperatures that rarely fall below 10 degrees. Inland, continental weather conditions dominate, so temperatures are on average 4 degrees colder than on the coast. We at Eurohike offer our hiking tours from March or April to November, so you can experience the beauty of nature in all its different facets and seasons. Whether in the mild spring and autumn, or in the warm summer, every season offers something special for hiking holidaymakers in Croatia.

Croatia's cuisine

In Croatian cuisine, tradition meets diversity, because the dishes are strongly influenced by the regions. So you can find wonderful traditional dishes like the typical cevapcici or raznici, as well as – and thanks to its proximity to Italy – pasta and pizza, and above all else, seafood as far as the eye can see. Due to the almost unlimited access to the sea, Croatia offers an incredible variety of fish dishes. After an eventful day in nature, you can look forward to a good meal including freshly caught fish and seafood – which are served in various ways in traditional restaurants known as a Konoba. A good dinner is best finished with homemade ice cream, a good dessert such as rozata (caramel pudding) or a typical cherry liqueur.

Culture and tradition in Croatia

Croatia is characterised by a particularly diverse cultural landscape and numerous traditions. Some of these customs count as UNESCO cultural heritage, such as the Ojkanje-song, a traditional song sung with trembling voices alone or with accompaniment. Klapa-singing is also an important and longstanding tradition in Croatia, the roots of which go back to the Middle Ages. But sweet traditions are also part of the intangible UNESCO world heritage, such as the handmade gingerbread. Not just a nice souvenir from northern Croatia, but rather a long-standing tradition from the Middle Ages, which, in the form of a heart, should bring happiness and joy to the recipient. Another tradition and part of the UNESCO list is the silent circle dance from the Dalmatian countryside.
