10 Amazing Things to do in Croatia

1. Trsat Castle, Rijeka

The first thing on this list of amazing things to do in Croatia is Trsat Castle. I enjoyed this quite a lot because it included more than seeing the castle. We walked up the many stairs and also explored the surrounding area around the castle. The walk is quite steep so there is a bus that goes up also.

7. Secluded Nusist Beach, Makarska

Makarska was my favorite city in Croatia, and we didn’t even plan to visit it! We decided to stop there to break up a long bus trip. I’m glad we did because it was awesome.

Besides hiking to this secluded nudist beach there are many outdoor things to do. You can hike up the mountain, swim in the pristine beaches, go rock-climbing, and more. There is also a nightclub in a cave!
