Croatia is European country which with its 56542 km2 of land area and total of 31067 km2 of territorial sea can be set among medium sized countries. Croatian capital is Zagreb, which is the economic, cultural and political centre of the country. Croatia has a little less than 4,3 million of inhabitants, of which the largest percentage are Croats. Among other nations, the most represented are Serbs (4,4%), and other national minorities together make up less than 1% of the total population.
Croatia is situated on the border of Central and South-eastern Europe so the Croatian culture has developed under the influence of Central European and Mediterranean cultural circles. Its location is extremely favourable for its mild climate, importance for transport routes and exit to the Adriatic Sea, on its north coast. Throughout the history for many people have found this position interesting and many of them have spread out and interchanged in this area. It is well - known that in the recent history in Croatia was raging a patriotic war, but Croatia has resisted all threats and continued its development and recovery, and on July 1, 2013 has become a member of the European Union.
At sea Croatia borders with Italy. On the land, to the north it borders with Slovenia and Hungary, to the east with Serbia, and in the south and east with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro.
Croatia is located in the northern temperate zone which affects its climate. In general it can be said that Croatia has moist, mild winters and warm summers, which favours the development of tourism, which has lately become very important economic activity. In particular, that applies to the coastal regions and the islands which have an average of 2600 hours sunny hours per year. The average temperature during winter time is 6 – 11°C; during the summer, temperature amounts from 21 to 27° C. The sea temperature is also pleasant for swimming and is not too hot, so it provides pleasant refreshment during the summer days. The sea temperatures range from 21 – 27° C.
If we analyse the climate more accurately then we can divide and recognize climate zones in accordance to the regions as of continental Croatia (moderate – continental climate), the Croatian highlands (subalpine and mountainous climate) and Croatian coastal region (Mediterranean and sub-Mediterranean hinterland climate)
Croatia can be divided into two zones: the Panonian plains and the Adriatic belt. They are separated by a central belt that is the highly stretched and unbroken Dinarides mountainous chain. Such characteristics gives a special climate features in Croatia, that is located between the subtropical high air pressure and Siberian, sub - polar low pressure and also the Atlantic low pressure belt. On the climate in Croatia also affects the Mediterranean depression. On this way, in Croatia penetrates polar and tropical land and sea air. A common occurrence is that with the precipitation falls the desert dust – the so called red rain.
Croatia has a rich tradition in tourism, which has been on the rise since the Patriotic war ended, but recently tourism again has increased and we have experienced positive developments, and Croatia becomes one of the most sought holiday destinations. However, when we are talking about numbers it should be emphasized that our total revenues are still on a smaller scale compared to for the example, France.
However, in recent times in the world has spread the news about Croatia as a newly discovered holiday destination. Tourism is starting to have an increasing share of GDP, and once when the potential of Croatian tourism has been recognised, the investments in infrastructure and enrichment of tourist offers have begun. When we are talking about tourism in Croatia, mostly the first thought of it is of its coast and coastal region. In reality, it is so because tourism has become a major industry in that part of Croatia. Tourism industry here is mostly related to summer tourism, which lasts from early June to the late September, but further has also been developed the off – season tourism.
Istria led in the number of overnight stays which is not surprising, because it is the most developed part with the entire new infrastructure. Primorje - Gorski Kotar County is just behind the Istria County by the number of over – night stays. Most of the tourists who came to Croatia had chosen private accommodation and apartments facilities. Apartments in Croatia are required form of accommodation, because they are modern, they meet the high standards and offer much more than a hotel accommodation. When we look at the accommodation in apartments, Croatia follows global trends and tries to meet the need of individualized accommodation that has becoming increasingly popular and more demanding form.
The beginnings of tourism are associated with the construction of apartments and hotels already in the first half of the 19th century. This means that organized tourism in Croatia has existed for over 150 years. In the beginning, it was not a form of tourism as we know it today, but it was the organised pilgrimages, medical treatments, and the like. This form of tourism that we know today exists for some 60 years. So, the beginnings of tourism date back to the construction of the first hotels, spas, etc. For tourism the significant period was until the beginning of the First World War. During that time, the roads and railways were built, and in the Adriatic were introduced the steamboat lines.
Even the ancient Romans knew the exceptional value of the Croatian coast and on it they built their summer houses, and on the land they used the existing thermal springs. Already during the Middle Ages the concern has prevailed about the accommodation of passengers. For these purposes were built inns and lazarettos. In 1347 in Dubrovnik was issued a stipulation that the Sponza Palace should be refurbished into ‘Hospitium’ for foreigners who were passing through the city.
From the 17th to the 19th century, many European travellers were visiting Croatia from the scientific and touristic reasons. Most of the passengers in separate works presented their impressions about the beauty of our country. However, tourism in the modern terms began in the 19th century when the Viennese court gentlemen reveal the beneficial effect of sun and sea and begun to build villas on the Adriatic coast. At the same time were constructed the hotels in Opatija, Crikvenica, Dubrovnik (Hotel Imperial)
Opatija has always been a symbol of tourism. There was built Hotel Villa Angiolina in 1844 and Hotel Kvarner in 1884. Then, tourism has been developing in Zagreb, Zadar, Poreč, and so on. On Kvarner, the spas have been opened. Crikvenica is today known for its hotel Therapia, then Terme Selce and many others.
The Croatian coast has attracted tourists because of its specific beauty, not only because of its beneficial effects on health. The peculiarities of the Croatian coastal areas are:
At the same time, and even before the development of tourism on the coastal regions, tourism has started to develop in the Croatian hinterland, such as ‘The Traveller’s House’ on Plitvice Lakes in 1861.
Continental Croatia is also of interest for tourists. Tourists can visit the mountainous regions of Gorski Kotar and Lika, picturesque hills of Croatian Zagorje, Moslavina and Požeška valley, the lowland parts abundant in rivers and streams, the magnificent natural rarity - Plitvice lakes, karst rivers canyons, karst caves and the like, lots of spas and baths, plenty of ruins and preserved medieval towns, castles, ecclesiastical and secular cultural and historical monuments. At the end of the 19th century the spas medicinal value was revealed, and they were established different tourist companies and organizations.
At the turn of the century the spas were constructed (in Daruvar, Lipik, Topusko, Stubica, Krapina, Varaždin, etc.) Along the coast were developing tourist resorts and towns where some of them play an important role in the international tourism (such as Opatija, Rijeka, Lošinj, Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik)
Between the two wars tourism ceases to be a privilege for the richer classes, the former mainly winter tourism turns into summer tourism. But only during the last 60 years, a well-known contemporary tourism has been developed, when the better train and boat connections, together with the paved roads were constructed, as well as with the domestic and international air traffic, and with the building of the modern facilities equipped with modern conveniences. At that time, Croatia recorded up to one million arrivals per year, introducing the residential tax.
