COMMENTS ABOUT Croatia:

Croatia is a country said to be at the crossroads of Europe, centrally located between the Balkans and the Mediterranean. There are more than one thousand islands along Croatia’s Adriatic Sea Coast, offering many popular tourist destinations such as Ziatni Rat Beach on Brac Island. Visitors come to Croatia for a variety of reasons, and since the Croatia War of Independence tourism here has grown to more than ten million visitors per year. People come from nearby Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovenia to enjoy Croatia’s many seaside resorts and marinas, its medieval coastal cities, its nature preserves, mountain resorts and health spas. 

Zagreb is the capital city of Croatia and its largest metropolitan area. Its historic Upper Town, Gornji Grad, is a popular area for walking tours around St. Mark’s Church. Interesting architecture that includes palaces with towers and ancient cathedrals makes the historical side of Zagreb something to explore, while its contemporary cultural entertainments offer more enjoyable attractions for visitors.

The Euphrasian Basilica in Porec is a visual feast that displays gorgeous Byzantine mosaic tile work, and the Diocletian’s Palace in Split is a wondrous architectural achievement that today houses many of the city’s shops and restaurants, even some homes. The Roman amphitheater in Pula has been standing intact since the first century and is the site of many modern festivals and concert performances in Croatia. The Cathedral of St. Marco on Korcula is another unique and beautiful building, as are many of the lovely structures in this ancient island city.

For natural scenic beauty, the island of Mljet is incomparable. Over two-thirds of this large Adriatic island is covered in lush forests interspersed with grape vineyards and containing two inland salt-water lakes. One of them, Lake Malo Jezero, has its own small island within its waters that is home to an ancient Benedictine monastery.

Nautical tourism is an important part of Croatia’s tourism industry, with hundreds of marinas along the coastline, boat tours, fishing expeditions, sailing ventures and diving trips are extremely popular activities during the summer months in Croatia.

Guide Licensing Information for Croatia

Croatia boasts a very large number of excellent destination for guided tours spread all over the country. While most travelers tend to focus their interest on the Adriatic coastline with its numerous medieval towns, the inner parts of Croatia are also worth visiting due to the natural variety presented in several large national parks. That's exactly why guided tours are a rather common practice in this country and there are many offers on the market.

All guides that render guiding services that are aimed at highlighting the local culture, history or heritage in designated tourist locations are required to carry a valid tour guide license. In order to get such a license one has to prove his or her expertise in the domain of tourism by passing the general guiding exam with the Ministry of Tourism and the local exam in the area of interest, which verifies adequate and sufficient knowledge of local history, culture, economics and traditions. However, if the guide offers services that aren't directly connected to designated tourist sites and don't emphasize the history and culture of Croatia, such as hiking, shopping or nightlife tours, then a license isn't required. 

Questions about Croatia
Greetings, I'm on Hvar Island until at least Sunday and have been looking for a guide. It's just me, but I'd be happy to pay the same fee for a private tour that a multiple-person group would pay. I'm especially interested in history, archaeology, and nature. I see on a couple of ...
