Croatia [Hrvatska]

It is located in the Southeastern Europe between Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and bordering Italy across the Adriatic Sea. Its shape resembles that of a crescent or a horseshoe, which flanks its neighbours Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. Its mainland territory is split in two non-contiguous parts by the short coastline of Bosnia and Herzegovina around Neum.
The terrain is diverse, including:
- plains, lakes and rolling hills in the continental north and northeast (Central Croatia and Slavonia, part of the Pannonian Basin);
- densely wooded mountains in Lika and Gorski Kotar, part of the Dinaric Alps;
- rocky coastlines on the Adriatic Sea (Istria, Northern Seacoast and Dalmatia).

Croatia is a privileged country with the Adriatic coastal length of more than 5000 km and 1,700 islands with the mountain peaks rising out of the sea.
Beautiful landscapes, the dramatic combination of mountain shapes that fall steeply into the sea and sandy beaches, medieval towns with interesting sights and very well preserved, the rich cruising offer along the coast are some of the considerations for choosing Croatia as the perfect holiday destination.
Of great importance and very well organized in Croatia are the Naturist Beaches (for nudism), marked with the symbol FKK (from the German "Freikorperkultur"), officially being declared 30 naturist (FKK) beaches.


Croatia este un stat situat in nord-vestul Peninsulei Balcanice, pe tarmul Marii Adriatice, impartit in 20 de diviziuni administrative („županije”), avand capitala la Zagreb. Cu o suprafata totala de 56.594 km², o parte din teritoriul din sudul extrem, din jurul orasului Dubrovnik, reprezinta o exclava legata de restul teritoriului doar prin ape teritoriale, pe uscat tara fiind separata de acesta printr-o fasie ce apartine Bosniei si Hertegovinei, in jurul orasului Neum.
Populatia tarii este de aproximativ 4.5 milioane de locuitori, majoritatea fiind reprezentata de catre croati si de catre romano-catolici.

Croatia reprezinta o tara privilegiata, din punct de vedere geografic, avand peste 5000 de km de coasta pe tarmul Marii Adriatice si peste 1700 de insule, dintre care 48 fiind locuite, cu un relief variat, caracterizat prin varfuri muntoase practic "rasarind" din mare. Astfel, cu peisaje continentale extraordinare, cu combinatii dramatice de forme muntoase si litoral, cu orase medievale foarte bine administrate si intretinute, cu o infrastructura nautica si rutiera mult inaintea altor tari membre UE (sute de porturi turistice, peste 1250 de km de autostrada cu zeci de tuneluri paralele), Croatia poate fi considerata o destinatie perfecta de vacanta.




Turismul
Domina sectorul de servicii al economiei croate, producand pana la 20% din PIB-ul tarii, avand venituri totale pentru 2011 de 6.61 miliarde euro. Efectele sale pozitive se simt in toata economia tarii, in termeni de crestere a volumului afacerilor observat in sectorul de retail, in industria prelucratoare si in numarul angajatilor sezonieri pe timp de vara. Turismul este considerat industrie de export, deoarece reduce semnificativ dezechilibrul balantei comerciale a tarii.
De la incheierea Razboiului de Independenta a Croatiei, turismul a crescut rapid, inregistrand valori de patru ori mai mari fata de trecut, cu peste 10 milioane de turisti anual. Cei mai numerosi turisti vin din Germania, Italia, Austria, Cehia, Polonia si din tarile nordice, durata medie a unui sejur fiind de 4,9 zile.

Grosul activitatii turistice se concentrează de-a lungul coastei Marii Adriatice, cea mai semnificativa componenta fiind turismul nautic, intrucat exista numeroase porturi de agrement ("Marina"), cu peste 16.000 de dane, urmand apoi turismul cultural in orasele medievale de pe coasta si abia apoi turismul clasic, de vacanta pe litoral. Croatia se claseaza pe locul 18 in clasamentul celor mai populare destinatii turistice din lume, putandu-se mandri cu marea foarte putin poluata, fapt atestat de catre numeroasele rezervatii naturale si de catre cele 116 plaje certificate cu steag albastru ("blueflag"), pentru inaltele standarde de calitate a apei, de securitate a turistilor, de curatenie, de grija pentru mediul inconjurator si de servicii oferite.
De mare importanta si foarte bine organizate sunt Plajele Naturiste (pentru nudism), marcate cu simbolul FKK (din limba germana "Freikorperkultur"), in mod oficial fiind recunoscute aproximativ 30 de resorturi FKK (statiuni propriu-zise, inclusiv plajele aferente), atat pe coasta cat si pe insule.

Iata o harta cu obiectivele turistice cele mai importante de pe teritoriul tarii:

Istria [Istra]

It is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, located at the head of the Adriatic between the Gulf of Trieste and the Bay of Kvarner. It is shared by three countries: Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.

Reprezinta cea mai mare peninsula de la Marea Adriatica, fiind situata in nordul acesteia, intre golful Trieste la vest si golful Kvarner la est.
In prezent aceasta se intinde pe teritoriul a trei tari, Croatia, Italia si Slovenia, cea mai mare parte (circa 89%) apartinand Croatiei, dupa ce in decursul istoriei a fost cucerita si recucerita de nenumarate ori. Mai intii a apartinut histrilor, apoi a trecut la Imperiul Roman de Apus, a fost pradata de goti si de longobarzi, anexata la regatul francilor, supusa ducilor din Carintia, Meran, Bavaria, apoi patriarhului din Aquileia, a apartinut de Republica Venetia, s-a aflat sub puterea Habsburgilor (cu o scurta perioada cand Napoleon a fost imparat al francezilor si rege al italienilor), a ajuns dupa Primul Razboi Mondial sa apartina de Italia, pentru ca dupa Al Doilea Razboi Mondial sa faca parte din Republica Socialista Federativa Iugoslavia, pana in 1991.

Locuitorii Istriei sunt de diferite etnii: croata, sarba, italiana si slovena, printre minoritati numarandu-se si o comunitate de istroromani, sosita din Transilvania, Banat sau Timoc, inainte de secolul al XIV-lea.
In partea croata a peninsulei (practic judetul Istria/Istra) sunt acceptate in prezent doua limbi oficiale: croata si italiana, inclusiv indicatoatele rutiere si turistice fiind bilingue.

Rovinj

It is one of the nine towns in the Istrian County, located on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula, a popular tourist resort and an active fishing port.
The town, as an ancient settlement (3rd century), is squeezed on a narrow peninsula and when you walk through its steep meandering lanes, cobbled squares and campiellis, you enter the centuries past by.
The coastal area is very well articulated with numerous bays, creeks and capes.

Being from 1283 to 1797 one of the the most important towns of Istria under the Republic of Venice, it was fortified by two rows of walls with three town gates. The remaining town walls date from this period. Close to the pier one can find the old town gate Balbi's Arch, dating from 1680, and a late-Renaissance clock tower.
After the fall of Venice and the Napoleonic parenthesis, Rovinj was part of the Austrian Empire until World War I. Then it belonged to Italy from 1918 to 1947, when it was ceded to SR Croatia within SFR Yugoslavia. During that period much of the Italian inhabitants left the city.


Fiind localizat pe coasta vestica a peninsulei, este unul dintre cele noua orase ale judetului Istria, vestit punct de atractie turistica dar si port de agremenet, respectiv pescaresc.
Vechea vatra a orasului, ca si asezare straveche (datand din secolul al III-lea), este inghesuita pe o peninsula ingusta, astfel ca o plimbare pe aleile si stradutele sale abrupte, inguste si serpuite, pavate cu roca lustruita de trecerea timpului si de briza marii, produce o interesanta senzatie de intoarcere in timp.





[...more...]




In perioada 1283 - 1797, cat timp a facut parte din Republica Venetiana, orasul a fost fortificat prin doua randuri de ziduri avand trei porti de intrare, elemente pastrate in conditii relativ bune pana in ziua de astazi. In apropiere de dig se poate vedea poarta de intrare denumita "Arcul lui Balbi", datand din 1680 precum si un turn cu ceas construit in stil "renascentist tarziu".




Dupa decaderea Venetiei si incursiunea lui Napoleon, orasul a devenit parte integranta a Imperiului Habsburgic pana la sfarsitul primului razboi mondial. Intre 1918 si 1947 a apartinut de Italia, fiind apoi cedat Croatiei, de atunci devenind parte integranta a acesteia atat in perioada apartenentei la fosta federatie Yugoslavia, cat si dupa separarea de federatie, in urma razboiului croat de independenta din perioada 1991 - 1995.

On the Route...

- Entering the Motorway 1 in Belgrade (Serbia):



- No Croatia/Zagreb traffic signs and indicators in Belgrade (and generally in entire Serbia):



- In Croatia, the A3 Motorway is passing far away from Zagreb, so the next pictures I'm posting are from the A6 and A7 Motorways when approaching the town Rijeka:





- On my route, between Zagreb and Rijeka I've counted 18 (!!!) tunnels on the A3, A6 and A7 Motorways:





- Rijeka seen from the A6 and partly A7 Motorways:





- The Tunel Ucka (length 5 - 6 km) is the border between Kvarner and Istria counties (the tax for passing it = aprox. 4 Euro):

Thanks.
Between Belgrade and Zagreb (Nb. 1 Motorway in Serbia and A3 in Croatia) the route is not so spectacular.
Only after Zagreb it becomes interesting because the A1 Motorway is passing through some hilly and mountain area, with dozens of overpasses and tunnels (18 counted by me).
