Croatian culture is the product of fourteen centuries' history, the evidence of which is littered across the country in their cities and monuments. Having seven world heritage sites as well as eight national parks is a feat of which any nation should be proud. Key heritage sites include the Episcopal complex of the Euphrasian Basilica at Porec, the Cathedral of St. James in Sibenik, the historical Trogir city, the Palace of Diocletian, the old Dubrovnik city and the Plitvice lakes. Most of its beautiful national parks are located along the Adriatic coast.
Croatia’s climate varies according to the area with noticeable distinctions occurring between the north and the coastal regions. The former is characterised by weather of a continental nature, seeing warm summers and mild to cold winters while the latter is more Mediterranean in nature.
Destinations on the Adriatic coast enjoy very warm summers, with temperatures in July and August hitting the high 20s (°C) and seeing average temperatures of around 26°C. Come winter, temperatures drop to no lower than 4°C and daytime highs are around 8 or 9°C. Rainfall volumes are highest between November and January and lowest between June and August.
