Croatia Village Tourism is a Growing Industry

There's much more to Croatia than its famous coastline

The traditional model of tourism in Croatia is to find a hotel or a resort and pay for a room for a specified length of time. While this works well for many visitors, others want more. Thankfully, village tourism is alive and well throughout Croatia. What is village tourism, you ask? It's an incredible way to get to know the people and places in this fantastic country. It also offers you a way to stay in Croatia that is away from the hustle and bustle of cities like SplitDubrovnik and Zagreb.

An old castle in Croatia
Village tourism involves visiting and staying at small villages and towns in Croatia,
where you will encounter historical and architectural attractions, like this old castle.

Stay at small villages and towns

At its heart, village tourism consists of staying in an actual residence in one of the small villages and towns that dot the countryside. You can find numerous benefits to this form of tourism, including no timetables, having your own residence without the bother of a hotel, local dining and immediate access to any attractions in the area.

Historical and cultural attractions

What can you find, as far as attractions are concerned? Croatia is rich in historical attractions, as well as cultural attractions. Roman ruins dot the landscape, while you will find medieval gothic constructions throughout the country. Ruined towers, the remains of curtain walls, ancient castles and much more can be found for your enjoyment. You can also easily access the national parks in Croatia from the villages and towns.

Private accommodations

Where can you stay? You can stay almost anywhere you like. You'll find apartments and homes for rent in Istria, Sibenik, outside of Split, near Dubrovnik, Kvarner, and on the Adriatic islands, as well. There are numerous private accommodations available, more than 10,000 according to some estimates. You'll also find a wide array of companies that can help you find these accommodations.

What type of housing can you find? You can rent an apartment or choose to stay in a countryside cottage. The type of accommodations available will vary with the area to which you travel, but apartments and even single-family homes are widely available. Many homes are occupied (you rent a room or a portion of a home) and can dine with the host family. This is one of the most incredible ways to get to know the locals. In addition, vast country estates are available if you have the money and the inclination. Sprawling homes set amid pastoral beauty are one of the best ways to stay in style.
