While studying in Croatia, international students should take time to explore the neighbouring countries - Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Italy.
Croatia's geographical position in South-Eastern Europe (at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain, the Adriatic Sea and the Balkans), combined with natural, historical and cultural diversity, makes it an ideal location for national and regional explorations.
In addition to making the most of the educational experience in Croatia, we suggest that international students use their free time for as much travelling as they can fit into their schedule –you will not be disappointed!
Croatia’s terrain is diverse and offers a range of discovery opportunities for adventurers and nature lovers. In central and eastern Croatia (Slavonia) there are plains, lakes and rolling hills, contrasted by the densely wooded mountains in Lika and Gorski Kotar (which are part of the Dinaric Alps) and the rocky coastline of the Adriatic Sea (Dalmatia, Istria and the northern coast). Since all this can be found in a rather small territory, everything seems close and accessible, making it perfect for weekend getaways no matter where students are based in Croatia.
There are many ways to travel around the country. Choosing a means of transportation will depend on where students are based and where they want to go, how fast they want to get there and how much they can afford. Getting around larger cities and urban areas is easy since there is a well-developed network of public transport, consisting of buses, trams and railways. The inter-city bus network offers more frequent timetables and better coverage than the railways.
