Delicious travel

What to try: Cyprus cuisine

Cyprus is a sunny island filled with exotic flavors and Eastern Mediterranean dishes. The richest culture, an abundance of historical monuments, unique cities and pristine beaches - all this is Greek (southern) Cyprus.

Cypriot recipes are based on Greek and Turkish cuisine. In addition, Armenian, Arabic and English traditions can be traced. Cypriots believe that if food is stale, it should not be eaten. Therefore, all dishes are prepared from exclusively fresh products with the addition of a small amount of oil. Vegetable fats are used, so Cypriot cuisine is very light. (more ...)

What to try in Greece?

Greece is a country of food lovers. Greeks do not suffer from the question of where to go and what to do with themselves in their free time from work. There is always an answer to this - delicious food. Greece has 13 regions - each with its own signature dishes. There are also traditional Greek dishes that can be found in any restaurant in the country.

Gastronomy Festival to be held in Prague

From 25 to 27 May, the Prague Food Festival 2012 will be held for the sixth time in the Royal Gardens of Prague. The event is organized with the assistance of the wife of the President of the Czech Republic Lavia Klausova and the Mayor of Prague Bohuslav Svoboda, as well as the active participation of the CzechTourism agency, which stands for traditional Czech cuisine.

Czech beer: for our own

In addition to well-known brands of Czech beer, popular among tourists, Czech breweries produce many products for a purely domestic market. Such beer is cheaper, but the quality and taste are at a consistently high level.

For example, the Czechs are very fond of Mestan, designed as an everyday beer. Its dark version is considered a “ladies'” drink due to its mild taste and aroma of roasted malt.

Pivrnec is no less famous. You can't say for sure why they love him more: spicy taste and hop aroma or original packaging. The style of this beer is a light lounger. Designer Petr Urban painted the famous Czech comic book hero on the label and added the inscription "Svetly stojak". The pun is understandable without translation.

There are not so many ways of spending leisure time, which would be “three in one”: sports, recreation, and entertainment. And water tourism is a great option to make summer

Travel guides do not shout about Croatia and rarely talk about travel shows, but here you go: in the high season in its resorts, the pinecone has nowhere to fall. And all because this country advertises itself for itself: with its crystal clear sea, excellent ecology, worthy cultural and natural heritage.

People come here to bask on the beautiful beaches, go downhill skiing, study the features of ancient Roman and medieval architecture, look into the holds of sunken ships, interesting museums and, of course, in numerous taverns, where they are treated to exceptional meat and unforgettable "Slivovitsa" ".

When is the best time to go

People come to Croatia to swim and sunbathe from late May to mid-September (although there is always enough sun in the country). In summer and September in Central Dalmatia, the air temperature reaches +24. +29 ° C, water +25 ° C, in the South it is still a little warmer. But in Platak, Sleme and other mountainous areas it is cooler: up to +23 ° C in July, up to +20 ° C at the end of May and September. At night in all regions it is colder than during the day by 6-10 ° C.

Winters in Croatia are mild with heavy rainfall. In the center and in the south, it is raining and warm, up to +12 ° C. There is a lot of snow at ski resorts, especially in February, and up to -5. -10 ° C.

They ski here from December to March. The best time for excursions is late spring, early summer and autumn.

Beach Vacation

Pebble beaches, concrete platforms prevail in the mainland of Croatia. On the islands there are areas with small pebbles and sand. The recreation areas are surrounded by pine trees and picturesque rocks, the entry into the sea is gentle. And the water is so transparent that anchored yachts seem to be floating in the air.

The most famous beach in the country is the sandy Zlatni Rat on the island of Brac, fantastically beautiful - Stiniva on the island of Vis, Sveti Ivan on Cres, Punta Rata near the village of Brela. Classic crowded, with developed infrastructure - Bačvice in the Split resort, Bijeca in the south of Istria, Paradise Plaza on Rab Island, Lapad in Dubrovnik. Look for nudist beaches in the Porec region, the Koversada resort and in general throughout Istria.

Most of the beaches are municipal and free, renting an umbrella and sun lounger costs from 40 HRK. There is nothing to rent on secluded beaches: umbrellas, sunbeds, food and water should be taken with you. There are a lot of tourists on the coast during the high season. Prices on the page are for February 2020

The Golden Rule "Closer to nature!" in Croatia everyone follows, but each in its own way. Someone enjoys the stunning ecology of the country: the cleanest sea and beaches, where pine trees rise instead of ridiculous beach umbrellas, and the coastal waters are transparent for tens of meters. Someone chooses the healing power of earth and water - good, in Croatia there are as many as 20 mineral springs and one field of unique medicinal oil. Well, the most radical citizens, accustomed to taking everything literally, come here to throw off the hypocritical veils of civilization and completely merge with nature on one of the many nudist beaches.

Would you agree that against the background of such great opportunities, talk about some rusticity of local hotels and food in them sounds at least inappropriate?

Regions and Resorts of Croatia

The capital of Croatia, Zagreb is the largest city in the country, but quite compact by European standards. In Zagreb, especially in its historical center, medieval architecture is perfectly preserved. There are many beautiful palaces and cathedrals, green parks and small cafes with verandas. It is best to explore the city on foot, since, firstly, it is small, and secondly, driving along the narrow streets in the center can be quite problematic.

Croatia is conventionally divided into three resort areas. The Istrian peninsula is known for its picturesque views of the Adriatic Sea, clear waters and close proximity to Italy (only 3.5 hours by sea to Venice). The beaches in Istria are not the most convenient: large pebbles and concrete platforms, but it is quite cool here even in the height of the summer season. Fans of medieval romance should go to Rovinj, Pula and the island of Krk, Medulin is perfect for young people (one of the few places in the region where sandy beaches meet and you can go diving), lovers of quiet rest and the elderly are waiting for Lovran, and those who want to improve their health you can visit Opatija.

Central Dalmatia is suitable for families with children. There are small-pebble beaches with a convenient gently sloping entrance to the sea, and there is all the entertainment infrastructure on the coast. Tucepi and Baska Voda are considered the best resorts for families. The island of Brac also has a beautiful coastline with small pebbles, but this place has long been chosen by nudists, so these beaches are more suitable for adults. The most prestigious resort in the region is Makarska. There is an entire promenade with luxurious restaurants, hotels and spas. A good thalassotherapy center was opened in Sibenik, where all the discos and other youth "movement" are concentrated.

South Dalmatia is mountains and islands. It grows oysters and produces the most famous wine in the country "Dingach". There are sandy beaches in the Dubrovnik area, but the coast is mostly rocky. According to UNESCO, Dubrovnik is one of the three most beautiful cities of the Renaissance, along with Amsterdam and Venice.

Ski resorts in Croatia are equipped no worse than the Austrian or Swiss ones, but at the same time they are significantly cheaper. The closest resort to Zagreb (only 10 km away) is the Sleme resort. The slopes here are quite gentle, which is suitable for beginner athletes and children, and the slopes themselves are located in a picturesque natural park. Platak resort is relatively young, but has already gained popularity among fans of winter sports. Its main feature is gorgeous views of the Adriatic Sea from the highest point. All the details about the cities and resorts of Croatia - on the page "The intricacies of tourism".

Time difference with Moscow

Climate

Croatia has a continental climate in the north of the country, a mountainous climate in the central part and a Mediterranean climate on the Adriatic coast. Summers are dry and hot in places, while winters are mild and rainy. The average temperature in winter is +5. +10 ° C in coastal areas, and in the mountains it drops to -5. 0 ° C. It is quite fresh in the mountains in summer: +15. +20 ° C, and the sea is hot and sunny - +23. +27 ° C, water temperature - +22. +25 ° C. However, it is sunny everywhere in Croatia. This country is one of the world record holders for the number of sunny days per year.

The best time to visit is May and September. In July and August, the weather is great, but there are too many tourists and the beaches are overcrowded. April and October are also very good in Croatia, but swimming is pretty cool. See also the current weather forecast for the popular resorts of Croatia for the next 10 days.
