Cycling in Croatia

Croatia In A Nutshell

I don't know what to recommend for Croatia. The area I cycled in was nicely flat but physically dull. The coast is extremely beautiful but tales of heavy traffic abound. Go to Zagreb. Its wide, flat streets make it easy to cycle around. And visit the Museum of Broken Relationships.

When I Went To Croatia

6th - 10th September 2012

Where I Went

Croatia's Scenery

Croatia is a very attractive country. Unfortunately I can't prove that to you because the part that my tour went through was a bit flat and dull. The Plitvicka National Park is gorgeous as is the coast, although reports are that traffic is bad. The islands are also very beautiful although I don't know how feasible it would be to tour them by bicycle.

Croatia's Road Quality

Surfaces were good but the roads tended not to have verges. On longer, straight roads, oncoming cars will overtake regardless of your presence. Sometimes this means getting off the road entirely to avoid being hit.

Croatia's Accommodation & Costs

Outside the capital Zagreb, my two hotels cost €36 and €40. Zagreb was 20% more.

Language

German is more useful than English, especially on the coast.

Reasons To Go To Croatia

A massive coastline, relatively good value, Zagreb and the Museum of Broken Relationships.
