Croatia is an underrated country that we want to highlight and share with you! It has recently become extremely popular…find out why!
Croatia is situated on the Adriatic Sea, and is known to many as the jem of the beautiful waters. The calm, crystal clear sea will have you returning for more, time and time again. Croatia’s beauty is gaining momentum, grabbing a spot in the top 20 most popular tourist destinations in the world. Croatia has a whopping 1,200 islands, 48 of which are permanently inhabited. If the beach isn’t your cup of tea, do not fret, Croatia is also known for its mountains and many mountain resorts and spas. Zagreb and Split are Croatia’s two most populated cities. While Zagreb is in the mountains, Split is on the Adriatic Sea.
Traveling from the mainland of Croatia to the islands and between the islands had once been a very long and expensive feat. Expensive yacht charters and sluggish public ferries were the only options for those who wanted to explore the country’s beauty. But, 2018 is the year of change…travelers get ready!
The country is now introducing UberBOAT, similar to the app for cars we all know and love…just with boats! The app will be comprised of on-demand transfers and private tours. UberBOAT mainly runs from North to South (and vice versa) along the Dalmatian coast. The days of being stuck in one place and only being able to travel if you have stacks of money, are over!
Šolta is a very popular island that is now reachable with the new app. Just 9 nautical miles south of Split, the hilly island is known for its scenery and for the peaceful quiet. Šolta is a great choice for those who want to get away from all of the hustle and bustle. Avoid crowded beaches and truly relax on this quaint gem of an island. Šolta is known among locals for its lush greenery, pebbly beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters. The island also boasts medieval villages and castles, and delicious wineries and family-run olive-oil farms.
Whether you’re destined for the mountains or prefer the sea, make sure to check out the beautiful country of Croatia. The introduction of UberBOAT now makes it easier than ever to explore the natural beauty of the islands!
