Croatia weather is famous for its sunny and very warm days. It keeps attracting millions of tourists yearly, willing to spend their holidays either on the side of a swimming pool, along the numerous promenades extended through the Croatian coast line, or on the beautiful beaches.
But one thing that many tourists don’t expect or even consider, is Croatia as a winter holiday destination. And believe me, it is as stunning as the sunny glorious days of summer.
Croatia weather fluctuations
Croatia weather can go as high as 36 °C during the summer, but surprisingly can drop as low as 7 °C in the winter. However this temperature drop doesn’t interfere on the fact that, Croatia is a perfect holiday destination, regardless. So, instead of visiting the popular winter destinations on your holiday, be surprised by what Croatia has to offer during the not so sunny seasons.
The food will make you warm and happy
One thing is for certain, the food is spectacular on any season of the year. During the summer you can delight yourself with delicious and fresh seafood meals. During the winter it is no different, you will also delight yourself but with hearty, warm and meaty dishes.
Traditional Croatian food have some similarity with Italian, Austrian, Hungarian, and Turkish. But the Croatian culture gives it its own twist. These include manestra, a bean soup prepared only in Istria, or fuzi, a hand-rolled pasta typical for Istria. In the cold days of winter you can be served Sarma, which is sauerkraut stuffed with minced meat and rice with spices.
