Croatia, the strength of a new
morning
you really know the full-bodied
D ofragrance
of sage, lavender and rose-
mary? When was the last time you took a
deep breath of the scent of a forest after
rain? And what do you think - do you do
more for the spirit or for the body when
you savour the pleasure of a wellness
centre from which all you can see is the
blue expanse of the sea that somewhere
in the distance blends into the infinity
of the sky?
When the urge for escape becomes irresistible, this is where the sanctuary is.
When you decide to gratify your body and
soul, Croatia is a place where the wellness
destinations await which have combined
everything that a man can do and knows
how to, with the unique climes and ambiance, and the inexhaustible energy of
stone, sea and trees. Either as the aim on
its own, or as an extra which is a perfect
complement to your holiday in Croatia,
wellness fortifies and provides that special kind of pleasure.
You are now in Croatia, the most beautiful and most fragrant garden of Europe.
Along its shores of the Mediterranean
character, in its interior typically centralEuropean, this is a land where the most
beautiful that nature can create joins with
the best that man can give.
Each Croatian region is unique in its
own way. Over a thousand islands and
isles, and the intricate shoreline of the
mainland, are an image to remember,
but also a source of eternal strength of
stone, aromatic plants, the sun and the
sea. The verdant mountains and plains
of the Croatian interior fill one with the
vigor of fresh air, wholesome food and
warm welcome. And whether you are
on holiday, or on a business trip or just
passing by, Croatian towns and business
hotels stand ready with their wide ranging supply of wellness services to make
their contribution to your well-being and
the quality of your stay.
Tradition of health tourism in Croatia
has been combined with the top of the
line achievements of the wellness movement, but also of the exceptional properties of this climate which fills one with
special fortitude. And if you were to do
no more than inhale the essence of the
sea, the fragrance of the aromatic plants
or woods, you would strengthen both
your body and soul. If you were simply
to sit in a square built of stone, or walk
through the streets that remember many
centuries, your worries would diminish
and your joys would be enhanced. If you
were to abandon yourself to the benefit
of wellness on offer, savour freshly prepared meals of the Mediterranean cuisine
flavoured with olive oil and rounded off
with a glass of fine Croatian wine – all
of which contain the captured strength
of the sun and the richness of the local climate, you would regenerate your
inner being.
But, when you have the opportunity to
enjoy all of that at the same time and in
the same place, than you indulge both
your body and your soul and, invigorated
with fresh energy, healthier and happier,
you are ready to venture into new a new
morning.
Croatia, your wellness destination offering a great palette of choices, wishes you
a warm welcome.

And
what about
tomorrow?
ay after day the same routine –
breakfast, going to work and coming
home late in the evening. And always the
same story – obligations and duties multiply, free time grows ever shorter, fear
of consequences beyond one’s control
increases. Our daily life is broken with
piercing sounds of alarm that today
sounds off for somebody else. But what
will it do tomorrow?
D
Six decades ago the World health organization accepted the definition of health
which says that being healthy means not
only being free of disease, but also being
in the condition of complete physical,
mental and social well-being. However,
such condition is neither achieved nor
is it lost on its own. The good news is
that we can influence what we are and
how we feel. The answer, or rather the
means of doing it, is wellness - a perfect
harmony of body, soul and the social environment. A wise saying tells us that the
medicine which preserves health is worth
more than the one which gets rid of a
disease. And it is in that role that wellness
is irreplaceable.
We all know that physical health implies
the choice of a healthy style of life which
assumes exercise, healthy diet and relaxation. Going to a wellness centre – as a
complement to a holiday, business trip
or as means unto itself – is the way to
became and remain what you want to
be. And to look it.
For, it is our energy, talent, creativity and
health that make us what we truly are.
Through its balanced influence on both
the spiritual and the physical, as well
as on our environment, wellness is our
best ally, and the Croatian destinations
a proven address.
You have
the answer
care of one’s health, looks and
T aking
the strength of spirit is as old as the
world, and in that sense wellness – the
briefest definition of which defines it as
a state of the perfect balance of physical,
spiritual and social health – has a long
history indeed, though its first mention
as the concept we know today dates from
the mid 20th century. A compound of two
words – well-being (contentment, feeling fine) and fitness (being physically fit
and healthy) – stands as a synonym for a
harmonious state of body and soul based
on the conscious effort invested into the
improvement of one’s health, good looks
and overall accomplishment.
A wide range of splendid wellness facilities on offer in Croatia has its source in the
long standing tradition of health resorts
which, owing to a pleasant climate, ambiance and the wealth of thermal springs,
found their place at the very top of the
WELLNESS CROATIA
WELLNESS CROATIA
European destinations of that type. Many
a European king and emperor came here
aware of the beneficial effects the blessings of these climes bear on one’s health
and spirit. And that tradition is being continued in the manner that will not put it
to shame.
Just as they did in those times, the aromatic vegetation and pleasant climate
continue to make these parts an ideal
place for a stay that translates into a
pleasure derived from the harmony of
the climate, the way of life and the wealth
of the wellness opportunities.
So let us set off together for a journey
through the Croatian regions and their
wide ranging wellness facilities which
offer the treat of treatments that have
been conceived professionally, but with
a great deal of unbridled imagination for
the luxurious. And then - healthier, merrier and more beautiful – you will be ready
to deal with the new challenges that life
and work throw at you. Your worries will
be lesser, your joys and self-confidence
greater.

Living
without stress
to please ourselves and those
A desire
we love is as old as the world. From
the times of the ancient Greeks and
Romans to this day, over two thousand
years after the Roman thermae were
conceived, the formula remains the
same, or at least similar: tending to one’s
health, beauty and spirit through the
combination of baths, sport and wholesome food. Down the centuries each
successive generation and each region
added something of its own, something
different. Croatia is no exception, at least
it seems so if one takes into consideration the best that experts and technology can give, and combine it with the
best that nature gives us. Yet, here you
will find much more: the fragrance of the
sea, of the aromatic and healing plants
and unique ambiance, the vigour of
rivers and the greenery of woods and
forests, and food which is as healthy as
it is delectable. These are the specific,
incomparable qualities of Croatia. And
all the worries become less troublesome,
all the joys more joyful. Aware that we
are again able to manage our own lives,
and rejoice in it in a new way, we also
know – with our new strength and selfconfidence - both the aim and way to
achieve it.

Blue seas, white stone and the green
interior make up the colour scheme
of Istria, the largest peninsula in
Croatia. The blueness of its shoreline

its interior and the tiny, “acropolian”

this peninsula. And to enhance it all
still further, there is a whole plethora
of interesting events, autochthonous
Istrian music and tourist services on
offer along the littoral and in the hinterland, all of which have made Istria
a familiar tourist region and an attractive destination quite in tune with the
needs of today’s guest. In search of a
break, a holiday or a mixture of business and pleasure, it is here that you
will be able to relax and enjoy yourself
in the well known and greatly appreciated wellness centres in places like

Pula…
PULA
which is the church of St. Euphemia,
is defined by its narrow and winding
streets, 22 tiny isles and islets in the
waters along its shores, and the exceptional quality of its tourist services
and facilities. Poreč is one of the most
popular Croatian tourist destinations,
but also a town of special atmosphere
and historical values. Through centuries and millennia many periods
and rulers have left their traces in
Pula, the largest Istrian town and a
well know tourist destination. But it
is best known for its heritage from
the Roman period which is so firmly
integrated into the tissue of the city,
indeed, so much so that walking
through its streets and square one
walks through a time change…
Alongside the enjoyment in its colours, in other words enjoying it visually, Istria can also be breathed in
and savoured. It is best defined by

Be what you
want to be
you dance? Would you like to
D owhirl
in the rhythm of waltz or
maybe you prefer sounds more modern? Would you enjoy picking Mediterranean olives or mountain blueberries
with your own hand, or perchance you
would prefer to adopt a dolphin or a
griffon vulture, or both… or perhaps
there are times when you wish to be
somebody else, somebody completely
different in a unique carnival procession?!
Here the littoral landscape is practically in the immediate vicinity of the
mountainous and forested region of
Gorski kotar, the Mediterranean clime
and way of life are first neighbours with
the harsh mountain climate, while the
world of a fashionable tourist resort
boasting a150 year long tradition is
so vastly different from the simple
rhythm of the island life. Kvarner is a
place where those seeking the glitter of
fied medieval burg that once was the
stronghold of the Frankopan princes,
one of the greatest members of the
Croatian nobility, and which now is
one of the most important shrines in
this country. Today this Mediterranean
town, in the best sense of the word,
is steadily becoming an ever more
popular venue of cultural events. One
of them is the International Rijeka Carnival which, with its tradition of over a
quarter of a century, has been ranked
among the most attractive world
events of this kind. But one also needs
to discover the other face of Rijeka. Its
modern urban clubs make the city a
very popular gathering place for the
young of the whole surrounding area,
and their guests, where they are sure
to find good fun and entertainment.
OPATIJA
trendy summer resort - like the lovely
Opatija whose tourist tradition, parks
replete with lush greenery and elegant
villas, combined with the 12 km long
promenade by the sea, attract guests
throughout the year.
Rijeka is an old town of rich history, and
its historic nucleus and monuments attract a large number of tourists. Standing out among many impressive vistas
of Rijeka undoubtedly is Trsat, the forti-
Groovy times are guaranteed.
The tourist resorts of Crikvenica and
Novi Vinodolski, which also record a
tourist tradition more than a century
long, draw a guarantee for both their
present and their future from that
very tradition. Just as long, and just
as successful a tradition in tourism
is boasted by the islands of Kvarner,
particularly the largest among them
– notably Cres and Lošinj, Krk and Rab
– where the quality of accommodation
is enhanced with cultural heritage, cultural programmes, customs and that
ongoing mutual permeation with the
unique nature with which one so easily finds unison. And one more thing
- for all those suffering with allergies
and all those experiencing problems
with breathing, the islands of Cres and
Lošinj are the ideal destination. Easier
breathing is guaranteed.
Only few kilometres from the sea a
completely different scene awaits. The
forests of the mountainous region of
Gorski kotar offer a place for relaxation and recreation for all seasons.
Both through the beauty of nature
and the human efforts invested into
new projects in harmony with nature,
new and increasingly popular destinations are emerging: Delnice, Fužine,
Ravna Gora, Vrbovsko… Undoubtedly
however, the crown jewel of the area
is the Risnjak National Park. Within
the embrace of Risnjak deep forests,
enchanting animal world and striking
karstic forms have found their last safe
refuge. Here the nature grows freely,
able to follow its own rules and ignore
those imposed by people.
Tradition and age old customs, cultural
events and the opportunity to enjoy
RIJEKA
the peace of centuries old olive groves,
or the power of untouched mountains
which are as attractive in winter as they
are in summer, all combine into that
completely different scene, and into
a new energy of destinations which
built their wellness story upon that
very tradition borne out by places
distinguished in the circle of leading
health resorts of centuries past.

isles, one national park and the vicinity of four more…is that not enough to
convince you that the Zadar region is a
magnet difficult to resist?! And still we
have not listed all it can offer!
The Zadar region is the northernmost
part of Dalmatia, its gate of welcome
to all those who travel from the north
of the Adriatic. It is full of contrasts, rich
pre-Romanesque church of St. Donatus
that was built at the beginning of the 9th
century and which, in the summer season, becomes the venue for the highly
popular Music Festivities of St. Donatus.
whose rapids are proving to be irresistible to those seeking the adrenalin rush
through organized adventure sports.
And while here, and when going home,
do not forget the tasty indigenous souvenirs like the widely appreciated and
ever so delectable Pag cheese, olive oil,
the Maraska liqueur… Have we forgotten
something? We certainly did, because
one of your souvenirs can also be the
beautiful lace of Pag. Its beauty so delighted that the Empress Maria Theresa
decided to have her own lace maker
from Pag at her court.
And until you come back to this same
place, these will be your pictures to remember.

in historic heritage and breathtakingly
beautiful nature. The first, and therefore
perhaps the most intense experience of
these parts, are the intense colours, that
particular harmony of the vivid blue of
the sea and over it the dark green of pine
trees or olive groves that descend all the
way to the shore. And to all that the brilliant white of the Dalmatian stone must
be added – it forms the beaches either in
slabs or broken down into gravel or pebbles, attracting numerous tourists…
This is a region which numbers as many
as 200 island and isles, with only 17 of
them being inhabited. Come the summer, their lives become very dynamic dynamic but not stressful. At other times
they are peaceful and totally relaxed. This
is a region boasting no less than 3000
years of continuous human habitation
that has been recorded in streets and
squares of cities like Zadar, the centre of
the region. The town which you will most
certainly remember by the monumental
But though St. Donatus may be the most
striking of all the monuments here, there
are many other things – churches, monuments, exhibitions and cultural events
that make this Mediterranean town ever
interesting, beautiful and different. Recently the element of different has been
greatly added to by the urban installations - the Sea Organ and the Salutations
to the Sun – which are equally attractive
for the locals and their visitors.
But Zadar is by no means the only tourist
jewel of the region. There is also Nin - the
oldest seat of the Croatian kings, Biograd
na moru with its historic heritage, the
town of Pag on the island of the same
name, etc. However, the most defining
features of this region are undoubtedly
its national park – Paklenica and the vicinity of four more – the Plitvice Lakes,
the Kornati Archipelago, the Krka Waterfalls and Northern Velebit. And there
is still more – the nature parks and the
canyons of the rivers Zrmanja and Krupa

Just enjoy it!
the urge comes upon you
W hen
to hear the sounds of Dalmatian chanson, to sing with a klapa, or
to enjoy the beauty of nature, or the
Robinson-kind of tourism of the Kornati
archipelago, the rampant waters of the
river Krka, or to take a journey into some
long gone times – then the direction is a
known thing. The region of Šibenik.
Two national parks with only 50km
between them could not be more different. The Kornati National Park is an
archipelago of 89 islands, isles and reefs
(numbering in total 152 units) of incomparable beauty which offers the boaters
the pleasure of sailing, the formidable
sheer cliffs filling them with delight and
awe in the same breath. Enchanted with
their striking beauty, the famous writer
George Bernard Shaw wrote one of the
best descriptions of the Kornati: “On
the last Day of Creation God wished to
crown his work and he created Kornati
out of tears, stars and breath”. In contrast, the Krka National Park is full of
travertine barriers, waterfalls and lakes
the wondrousness of which take one’s
breath away. Indeed, they are regarded
as one of the favourite tourist picture
postcards from Croatia.
Indeed, it is difficult to decide which
national park is more beautiful, which
makes them a good example for yet another of life’s lessons: beauty will not
compare to beauty, it just needs to be
enjoyed. And it is this very diversity of
the sea and the river phenomena that
best depicts all the beauty and all the
surprises found in the Dalmatian region
of Šibenik. A significant role in this belongs to the Šibenik hinterland – visiting it you take a journey into an almost
forgotten way of life and customs, but
also an opportunity to learn about
indigenous herbs and vegetables the
flavours, aromas and colours of which
will take you back through time, like a
true time machine.
The royal city of Knin – situated in
the place where roads from the mainland intersect on their way to the sea
– abounds with cultural and historic
monuments and natural attractions
the beauty and value of which attract
visitors.
Also of interest is the old town of Drniš
in the vicinity of which is the village
of Otavice where the world-famous
Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović built
his family mausoleum.
A visit to this region is an opportunity
to see the city of Šibenik, the oldest
VISOVAC
autochthonous town on the Croatian
Adriatic. Its cathedral of St. Jacob, a
unique monument of the European
sacral architecture, has been included
in the UNESCO List of world heritage.
Šibenik is the venue of numerous cultural manifestations, among them the
International Child’s Festival, the Festival of Dalmatian Chansons, etc. Those
who come do not forget the vibrancy of
Vodice, the diverse opportunities and
picturesque quality of Primošten and its
incredible vineyards the photograph of
which is exhibited in the UN building as
a kind of accolade to human effort.
The island of Murter, separated from the
mainland by a narrow Murter channel
which is spanned by a 12 m long bascule
bridge at Tisno, is an attractive place for
boaters but also for all those who long
for a holiday in unspoiled nature.
But these are by no means all on the list
of tourist destinations and attractions
which draw large numbers of tourists,
and which are the reason that one does
not come to Dalmatia-Šibenik once, but
the for the first time. So, carry on investigating yourself. And just enjoy it!

of central Dalmatia.
Olives, indigenous aromatic plants, brilliancy of white stone against the verdant
vegetation and the towering mountain
massif of Biokovo whose spurs reach all
the way to the sea – yes, this is indeed an
exceptional part of the country, and its
beauty is made all the more enchanting
by numerous historic events and monuments, and cultural manifestations. In
short, this is an ever interesting region
full of attractions which draws a great
many visitors.
The Split region, the central part of Dalmatia, is just as attractive for the natural
beauty of its islands and the mainland
by Split. And there is no other imperial
residence from the Antiquity, built either
before of after the Diocletian’s Palace,
that has managed to preserve so many
of its original features. But whatever
the historians may say about this city,
about its indisputable value without

of that particular style, for you Split and
its historic heart are primarily your very
own perception of beauty, that harmony
between people and history, between
architecture and the dynamism of the
modern day tourism.

In addition to being full of wonderful
stories, of the long-standing traditional
manifestations like the Alka of Sinj, of
cultural events – music, drama, dance
– all encompassed under the common
name of the Summer of Split, and numerous other opportunities, this region is
also a veritable garden full of indigenous
aromatic plants. Whether you happen to
be in Split or Trogir, in the picturesque
Brela or somewhere along the Makarska
Riviera, or whether the islands of Vis, Hvar
or Brač are your choice, or indeed any
other destination in this region, you will
treat yourself to a holiday in an ambience
to remember, amidst natural surroundings to remember.
Its hinterland offers an excellent opportunity for adventure sports on the river
Cetina, for walking and hiking, but also
a chance to learn about the still prevailing traditional way of life, savour the local food, and again take delight in the
glorious nature around you. Becoming
one with it, you will be abler to enjoy the
region whose strength, past and present
have been carved in stone.

are the historic sights, first and foremost
the Diocletian’s Palace in Split, the old
nucleus of the city of Trogir – two cultural
monuments included in the UNESCO List
of world cultural heritage. Recently, they
have been joined by Starigradsko polje
(the Stari Grad Range) on the island of
Hvar. Another sight most definitely worthy of mention is Salona, a city which had

the traditional life of Konavle – the hinterland of Dubrovnik, and you simply
cannot miss the traditional boat race
on the river Neretva.
Have we covered it all? Of course we
have not. How could anybody even
hope to say everything about this region!?
Dubrovnik, the centre of the southernmost region of Dalmatia and its most
famous representative, is also the star
on the front pages of many prestigious
world magazines, as well as being at
the very top of the scale of the most
beautiful cities of the world. Year on
year it is proving itself as a source of
inspiration for artists, a venue favoured
by members of royal families and the
jet setters of the world. It belongs to
them, but no more than it belongs to
all those who came but once. It is quite
simple really, one encounter is enough
for those fine threads between you and
this glorious city to be spun to last…
Dubrovnik region is a place of beautiful nature, intoxicating fragrances
and delectable flavours, and of a longstanding tradition of a highly developed tourism in which every guest can
have a holiday to suit her or his wishes.
Of all the lovely places, there are two
“officially recognized” which deserve
special prominence.
The first is undoubtedly the old nucleus
of the city of Dubrovnik which is on
the UNESCO List of world heritage. And
when you are strolling along its magnificent, 2km long and 25m wide walls
The second place worthy of special
prominence is the Mljet National Park
located in the western part of this
island exceptionally rich in aromatic
plants. There are two features which
set this Park apart – the two deep bays
which, due to their very narrow links
with the open sea, are regarded as
lakes, and the lush and highly diverse
Mediterranean vegetation. Mljet also
has a rich cultural heritage, the most
impressive of which is the complex of
the 12th century Benedictine monastery on the tiny isle in the middle of
the large “lake”.
And that by no means completes the
list of the lovely sights and treasures of
this area. Among the names that should
be added to it are the nearby town of
Cavtat, the small towns of Ston and
Mali Ston, the peninsula of Pelješac,
the Elafiti isles, the islands of Lastovo
and of course Korčula with its highly
attractive tourist resorts, the distinctive
lower course of the Neretva river, the
southern Dalmatian hinterland.
which encircle the old town, when you
are enjoying yourself in the small restaurants in the Prijeko street, or when
you sail round it in a luxury yacht, you
will have discovered a new view of the
city whose two gates – Pila and Ploče
– are linked by its now world famous
main streets, the Stradun. Long indeed
is the list of sights that should be seen,
and there will be a great deal of the
atmosphere of this eternal city that you
will wish to take home with your.
And then, there is the Dubrovnik Summer Festival with its numerous cultural
events - drama, music or dance, productions staged in the open, performances by the world-renown artist are
but a part of the programme attracting
the guests. Just as attractive are the
customs, the folklore and the traditional dances re-enacting the events
from the past, like the moreška and
kumpanija on the island of Korčula.
And even without the big names and
productions by famous performers

Nature is the

you ever seen with your own
H ave
eyes the sparkling clear springs
grow into magnificent rivers? Have you
ever truly perceived the power and the
allure of the mysterious mountains? And
finally, have you ever thought that their
clarity and their power could become
yours?
If you visit the Lika-Karlovac tourist
region, the continental part of Croatia
which is the link between Dalmatian
littoral and the central section of the
country, you shall be all that closer to
the answer. For, that clarity and power
are perhaps best conveyed by the wondrousness of the Plitvice Lakes National
Park, the phenomenon which attracts
with its uniqueness, but also with the
effect it bears on both our mental and
physical wellbeing. The National Park
of Northern Velebit is an area of distinctive diversity of karstic forms, the
wealth of all kinds of a living world and
the Museum of Lika – will enable you
to comprehend the immense value of
his inventions which have changes the
world for ever. One of the crown jewels
of the area is the medieval Nehaj fortress, the symbol of both the town of
Senj that grew on the coast of the Adriatic, and the entire Croatian struggle for
freedom on land and sea. The northern
part of the island of Pag attracts and
holds one’s interest by its specific landscape which can be perceived as the
return to the fundamental elements of
nature – the sea, the stone and the sun.
Many remember it for its beach in Novalja, the delicacies of its cuisine – fish and
foremost the Pag cheese and lamb.
The historical heritage and the ever
wider supply of tourist services and facilities of Karlovac, the town which lies
on four rivers, is equally attractive with
its old burg of Dubovec and a number
of other historic sites to be found in the
region - such as Ozalj, Ribnik, Bosiljevo,
and other monuments of architectural
heritage. If hiking, swimming in crystal
clear rivers, cycling, fishing, partaking
in winter sports or, if you will, splashing
about in thermal springs is what makes
you tick – then you have come to the
right place.

of breathtaking natural beauty in a relatively small area.
Organized canoeing and rafting on
rivers, rides on well prepared cycling
tracks or, come winter time, skiing in the
Croatian Olympic centre of Bjelolasica,
are but a few of the opportunities offered by this fascinating region. A visit
to the Memorial Centre of the inventor,
electrical engineer and physicist Nikola
Tesla in the small village of Smiljan not

of the region in which one can also visit
Few and far indeed are the places which
– still being what the nature intended
them to be, even where the human hand
had ever so gently intervened into the
laws of nature – one can call actually
describe as wellness.
The Lika-Karlovac tourist region is an
area which transfuses its own vitality
into yours, restoring the clarity of your
thought, brightening the spark in your
eye and invigorating the energy of your
actions. Experts would say: the air here
has special properties, the pressure of
KARLOVAC
oxygen is reduced and so is the level of
humidity, thermal radiation is increased,
and the combination of these factors
has a distinctly therapeutic effect. After
all, are not the folk of the area renown
for being healthy, vigorous and longliving?! So close to the sea, but also to
the central Croatia, this is the land where
the continental and the Mediterranean
climates mix, where numerous fascinating stories and legends are born. All in
all, this is the land where you will find a
new source of vitality and the primeval
aroma therapy.
There is no room for doubts – nature is
indeed the best teacher of life.

of this area is the high concentration of

The priceless jewel of central Croatia is the
city of Varaždin situated on the right bank
of the river Drava. The city, which grew
out of the medieval fortification that still
stands preserved, is a veritable treasure
trove of baroque and classicist style architecture. The Varaždin of today, renown
for its preserved Old Town, its amazing
cemetery and the Opeka arboretum, is
readily identified by its Baroque Evenings
of classical music, and the Špancirfest –
the Festival of strollers.
Nature Park located between the towns
of Sisak and Nova Gradiška. Its wetlands
provide the habitat for numerous rare and
protected species of birds. One of those
species are storks who have found a safe
home in the village of Čigoč – which is
why the village has been declared the
European village of storks.
It is quite simple, central Croatia is replete

Bundek, the parks that form what is
known as the Lenuzzi horseshoe through
The Zagreb Mount, or rather Sljeme - its

from all other parts of the country, including the fish market offering a mouth

From spring to late autumn the streets
of Zagreb turn into myriad of stages for

host to artists from this and many other
countries, offering the citizens of Zagreb

SLAVONIA
Halt the time...
the harvest time this song
C ome
reverberates through the air, precious folks costumes are taken out of
old wooden chests and age-old customs
brought to life – all in order to preserve
the Slavonia as it used to be for the future of Slavonia. Take a walk through the
Old Town of Osijek, visit the traditional
villages of Baranja and the Kopački rit
Nature Park, go mountaineering, enjoy the many rich thermal spring. And
wherever you find yourself, you are going to be met with a warm welcome and
friendship so typical of Slavonia and its
people.
This is the land of thermal spas, castles,
manor houses and summer residences,
the land of wheat and wines. And the
land which traditionally lives of the land,
many of the celebrations are closely dependent on the rhythm of works in the
fields – which is why Slavonia, despite
its modern way of life, has retained its
primeval ties with nature. Its wealth of
thermal springs presents those in search
of recreation with a wide choice of famous spas such as Lipik and Bizovac – to
mention but a few. Slavonia is also the
land of vineyards, the best known among
them being those around Kutjevo, while
the old cellars of Kutjevo is the place
where one can savour excellent wines,
including some of the local varieties and
archive wines.
Among the palette of events and manifestations based on traditional local
customs and folklore a special mention
must be made of the Vinkovačke jeseni
(the Autumns in Vinkovci) and Đakovački
vezovi (the Colours of Đakovo), while the
festival of traditional games – the Olympiad of ancients sports which takes place
every August in the village of Brođanci
near the Bizovac Spa – offers a chance
for a journey into the past. The largest
town in the region is Osijek which has
inwrought the singular beauty of the
restored old complex of Tvrđa, and its
location on the bank of the Drava river,
into the atmosphere of the city that captivates with its hospitality and quality of
tourist service. Throughout the region
there are many towns and places worth
visiting, and which delight both with
their culture and their beauty.
The nature of Slavonia is wonderfully
interesting and diverse. In addition to
the already mentioned thermal springs
the region abounds in ancient forests,
and the most impressive and the oldest
among them are the forests of common
oak around Spačva and Okučani, while
the mountain of Papuk is practically covered with forests of beech and fir-trees.
However, the most fascinating location
is undoubtedly Kopački rit – a nature
park and a zoological reserve, an area
of marshlands provide the habitat for
over 290 species of birds – which in turn
makes the area a frequent destination
of ornithologist from all over the world,
but also of all other nature lovers who
come to see this exquisite corner of the
earth.
Whichever way you turn you will find
yourself amidst the region which tells
the story of both past and present, which
combines the rich gifts bestowed upon it
by the generous nature with the hospitality that makes Slavonia so enjoyable,
and loved in a very special way.

you wish so, we shall halt the time for
you too.

THE BALM AND FRAGRANCE OF CROATIA
Croatia is a veritable treasure
trove of indigenous medicinal
plants growing right throughout
the land – on the islands, along
the Littoral and in the continental areas. As an integral element
of numerous cosmetic preparations, or a scent which evokes the
Mediterranean atmosphere in
wellness centres and hotels, those
aromatic plants are the scent of
Croatia that is going to enchant
you, and that is going to be one
more reason for you to return.
Out of a large number of autochtonous medicinal plants we
would like to draw special attention to few of them. So, let us go
exploring together!
Lavender
Lavender grows in the Littoral and on the
Adriatic islands. Its flower has a wide range
of applications – as seasoning in food
preparation in the Mediterranean cuisine;
its essential oil is widely used in aromatherapies, as well as in the cosmetic and
pharmaceutical industries.
Laurel
Laurel grows along the coastline and on
the islands. It is used as a seasoning. Its
essential oil is obtained by way of steam
distillation, and its medicinal properties make it popular as an ingredient in
aroma-therapy.
Sage
Sage is found on the islands and all along
the Littoral. Its therapeutic properties
were recognized as far back as the Middle
Ages, and Dalmatian sage is particularly
appreciated for the beneficial effects it
has on one’s health. The popularity of this
plant is amply confirmed by the fact that
in the year of 1688 a book about it, numbering as many
as 414 pages,
was published in
Europe.

Sweet balm
Mint
Sweet balm grows all along the Adriatic
coastline, and it is used in food preparation and as an ingredient in liqueurs. Its
dried leaves are used to make teas both
aromatic and medicinal. Mixed with the
essential oil of lemon it is used in aromatherapies and in cosmetics industry.
Yarrow
Yarrow is found all along the Adriatic
coast. It is used as seasoning, and its
medicinal properties make it popular as
a herbal beverage. It can be picked from
February to June, best before it reaches a
full flower.
In Croatia there are twelve indigenous
types of mint, and due to their aroma of
menthol they all have the same or similar
application. The exception is the Dalmatian mint which has a lemony scent. It is
used as a seasoning, addition to dishes or
is prepared as tea. It is of course used in
cosmetics industry and in aroma-therapy.
Wild olive
Wild olive is found in southern Croatia, in
dry and rocky places close to the sea. Its
fruit is used to obtain olive oil, but they
are not as juicy as those of a cultivated
type. The oil is used as addition to different dishes of the Mediterranean cuisine
and salads.
Myrtle
Fennel
Fennel grows along the Littoral, on the
islands but also in the hinterland. It is a
very popular seasoning in the Mediterranean. Its essential oil is obtained by way
of a steam distillation of its fruit, and it is
used in the food and in the pharmaceutical industries.
Myrtle is found on the islands and along
the central and southern Adriatic coast.
Its fruit is used as seasoning, while distillation of young leaves and twigs yields
essential oil used in aroma-therapy.
Fir tree
Rosemary
Rosemary is found on the islands and all
along the Adriatic coastline. It has a very
characteristic aromatic scent and is highly
popular as seasoning in dishes of the
Mediterranean cuisine. Its essential oil is
used in the cosmetic and the pharmaceutical industries, as
well as in aromatherapy.
Fir trees grow in the hilly and mountainous parts of Croatia. The needles of young
shoots are used in the preparation of an
aromatic beverage, and its essential oil
is used in the pharmaceutical and the
cosmetics industries.
Stone pine
Stone pine can be found in Istria, on the
islands of Lošinj, Cres, Rab and Mljet,
and in the area of Dubrovnik. The pine
kernels, which are of a very specific rosiny
flavour and highly valued, can be eaten
fresh or used as addition to roasts, pasta
salads or deserts.

IT IS GOOD TO KNOW
Quite unique in the
benefits of its natural
environment, its climatic properties, the wealth of its tradition and
its expertise all combine
into making Croatia
practically predestined
to become your ideal
wellness destination.
We leave nothing, but
nothing to chance…
GENERAL INFORMATION
We are delighted that you have
decided to visit our country. We
wish you a warm welcome.
The Croats call their country
“Our beautiful Homeland”,
which is the opening line of the
Croatian national anthem.
The Republic of Croatia is a
European democratic parliamentary state and a part of
European and cultural history.
It is classified as one of the medium sized European countries
such as Denmark, Ireland, the
Slovak Republic or Switzerland.
Croatia is a land of open
frontiers and clear cut customs
regulations. It is also a place
of harmony and one that is
respectful towards its guests.
We strive to make our country
beautiful to all those who visit
it, and we do our best to ensure
that visitors take only beautiful
memories home with them.
Predestined for success
Croatia has a long tradition in health tourism.
Owing to its favourable natural and climatic
characteristics, the geographic vicinity and
its professional staff, numerous destinations
on the mainland coast and the islands, as well
as the thermal spas in the continental part of
the country, are known for their successful
methods of health care, recreation, grooming,
but also for their superb anti-stress methods.
Even if the proven experts and thoughtfully
conceived wellness packages were not at your
disposal, you would do a great deal for you
spiritual and physical wellbeing by merely
inhaling the scents of the aromatic plants,
by walking, swimming, by simply enjoying
the sight of the sea or soaking up the lush
greenery around you. Should you be coming
for medicinal treatments in order to improve
or maintain your health, do no forget to bring
your medical documentation.
They are here for you
Tradition of health tourism in Croatia is over
150 years long. It is therefore no wonder
that the country has a well developed,
quality educational system which includes
secondary schools (four-year programme)
and two-year advanced schools of physical therapy, with a network of specialized
wellness schools being now developed.
Wellness centres frequently employ graduated kinesiologists, many have medical staff
and offer health checks and they base their

the European Union. According to the valid
legislation of the Republic of Croatia all

Unique and irreplaceable
While staying in Croatia you can take advantage of enjoying the benefits of thalassotherapy for which the conditions here are ideal. By
definition, thalassotherapy is the use of natural
medicinal physical and chemical properties
of the sea and the littoral with the aim of
treatment, rehabilitation, prevention and revitalization. The word thalassotherapy originates
from the Greek word thalassos – the sea. The
properties of the sea which have impact on
our health are the temperature and humidity
of air, velocity of wind, temperature of the sun
and its radiation, purity of air and absence of
allergenic agents, presence of essential oils,
sodium-chloride, fluoride and iodine. The use
of fresh sea water encourages the exchange
of minerals and toxins between the body and
the water.
The Adriatic Sea is exceptionally rich in minerals and living organisms, and its properties
and effects cannot be substituted, artificially
produced or stored for more than 24 hours.
Croatia has a long-standing tradition in thalassotherapy, and health resorts administering
thalassotherapy are located in Crikvenica,
purchased in Croatia, for amounts in excess
of 500 HRK, upon the presentation of a PDV-P,
or rather a “Tax-cheque” form that can only be
verified by a customs official.
For additional information please contact the
Customs Administration (www.carina.hr)
Information regarding the conditions relating
the importation of products of animal origin
in personal luggage can be obtained from
the Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing and Rural
Development – Administration for Veterinary
Medicine (Tel.: + 385 1 610 9749, 610 6703 and
610 6669).
Currency
Customs regulations
Customs regulations in the Republic of Croatia
are almost completely harmonised with the
regulations and standards of EU member
states, but the value of items of a non-commercial character for personal use that are allowed to be brought into the country without
paying tax duty or PDV (VAT) is limited to 300
HRK (kuna).
Bringing in foreign and local currency and
cheques is free for both foreign and Croatian
citizens with foreign residence, but the transfer
of an amount that exceeds 10,000 Euro must

Wellness at the table
How long should one stay?
The World Health Organization recommends
the Mediterranean cuisine as the healthiest one. On the basis of numerous studies
that have been carried out it was concluded
that people who opted for this type of diet
are exposed to a lower risk of suffering from
cardio-vascular and malignant diseases.
It has also been statistically proved that people
living in the Mediterranean live longer lives
than the rest of Europeans. Scientific studies
tell us that the credit it goes to olive oil, fruit
and vegetable, fish oils and wine. Here too
Croatia has an advantage – fresh, traditionally
grown produce simply prepared by boiling in
salted water or steamed, the sun and a lot of
physical activity are the winning combination:
pleasant, tasty and healthy – what more can
one want!
In addition to the local Mediterranean and the
international cuisines, special diets adjusted to
specific medical conditions of individual guest
can be served providing an advanced notification has been given.
If the tempo of your life and the obligations
you have do not allow for a prolonged stay,
a week or even a weekend of abandoning
yourself to the benefits of an active holiday
will greatly benefit your physical and spiritual
wellbeing. Allow us to remind you – in order
to be as advantageous as possible, a brief stay
requires a more precise time schedule. We
therefore recommend advance booking of the
desired treatments. Most wellness centres offer
a weekly, monthly or longer period membership advantages which allows the members to
have more treatments at favourable prices. In
order to be able to use the wellness services
immediately upon your arrival, and to select
either the wellness package or the individual
treatments that are the best for you, request
that the instruction and the list of available
programmes and treatments be sent to prior
to your arrival.
And one more thing – the Mediterranean
climate is an additional bonus to you wellness
enjoyment, so when here – go for walks, breath
the sea air, go swimming. Walking through
woods and breathing fresh air is just as beneficial for one’s health, so a stay in the continental
part of the country will have strong impact on
your overall wellbeing.
Enjoy it.
During the tourist season, most shops are
open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on weekdays, and
most are open during the weekends as well.
Public services and business offices work from
8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Mondays to Fridays.
Public holidays

220 V, frequency 50 Hz
Most wellness centres are open the year round.
The exception are some of the seasonal hotels
in the Littoral and on the islands. The most
common opening hours are from 8 a.m. to
21 p.m. for detailed information it is best to
contact individual hotels, wellness centres or
the tourist agency through which you have
organized your journey.
And finally, do enjoy every moment of your
wellness visit to Croatia.
