My visit to Zadar/Sibenik region, Croatia 1 – 5 April 2009

I’m visiting the Zadar/Sibenik region of Croatia from 1 – 5 April on a press trip hosted by the Croatian National Tourist Office, Zadar County Tourist Board and Ryanair.

I’ll be in the inaugural Ryanair Edinburgh to Zadar flight on 1 April. I’m really looking forward to visiting three of the national parks, Paklenica, popular with rock climbers and where there have been sightings of bears, Kornati Islands, an archipeligo of 140 islands and the Krka Waterfalls.

I ‘ll spend time on the island of Pag renowned for it’s cheese and lamb, take the scenic coastal route to Biograd, visit Nin the oldest Croatian royal town and Sibenik with it’s beautiful seafront.

It’s amazing that I’ll be in Croatia again later in April, in the Istrian peninsula as a guest of the Istrian Tourist Board. I’ve read that Croatia is a top destination this year, partly as it’s good value as they haven’t adopted the Euro yet. It’s also becoming easier to reach Croatia with an increase in routes by low cost airlines. However from what I’ve read and seen in photos it’s the natural beauty which attracts me.
