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. In addition to making the most of the educational experience in Croatia, we suggest that international students use their free time to explore Croatia and the neighbouring countries - Slovenia, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Italy.
For more information on travel, trip ideas and events please visit the website of the Croatian National Tourist Board. Also, there are numerous public events and festivals yearlong. Local sections of European Student Network (ESN) organize a variety of activities for international students. Find the time to indulge in local customs like procaffeinating in one of the numerous coffee shops.
