Croatia is a country that gave the world tie, Dalmatian dog, parachute and gets Guinness Book Record for the biggest truffle, it is the birthplace of Marco Polo and Nikola Tesla, the World Center for Nudism and the place of the filming of the Games of the Thrones. But for us, first of all, this is the world mecca of yachting. Having surrounding themselves with more than a thousands of islands, picturesquely scattered along the winding and very extended coastline of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia began to be considered an ideal country for sailing both among professionals and beginner yachtsmen.

The water here has crystal transparency and purity, the water area is closed from storm winds and waves, characteristic of the open sea, and in the development of the infrastructure of Croatia in recent years has become the leader in the whole Mediterranean.

Here you can find an anchorage for every taste – to retire in one of the sets of wild bays, some of which are equipped with buoyes, stay in a comfortable marina and get a maximum of amenities and excellent service, or moored in the very center of events right across the urban embankment, most of which, equipped with moorrings.

The yacht season in Croatia is relatively short, from May to September, and the peak of activity is in August. In the summer, the average temperature on the coast ranges from + 27c to + 29c, water temperature – from + 23c to + 25c. At this time prevailing the North-West Mistral in 10-15 knots, increasing to noon and subsided in the evening, and the likelihood of a dangerous catabathic wind boron, sharply accelerating to 40 – 60 knots, is extremely small, which you can’t tell about the period from September to May.

Croatia is replete with antiquities monuments. Throughout its history, these lands moved many times under the control of different conquerors. Walking along the streets in different cities you can meet Roman structures, created BC, adjacent to the architecture of the period of the Hungarian rule or the era of the Venetian Republic, in close proximity to the buildings of the time of Yugoslav socialism.

Several coastal attractions are listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a historic center of Split with Diocletian’s palace, St. Jacob’s Cathedral in Sibenik, the historic center of Trogir, Eufraziev Basilica and the entire Old Town of Dubrovnik. And of course, do not lose a chance to visit nature reserves and national parks, each of them can give you an indelible impression.

You can enter the country on the current Schengen visa.

National currency Croatia – Kuna (1 kun = 100 Lip). Charter companies in Croatia are receiving IYT, RYA certificates and certificates issued by GIMS.
