Summer song you are going to listen during your holiday is produced by insect cricket/ cvrčak. Did you know that only adult male cvrčak sings, and only a male can produce a typical and unique summer song whose aim is to attract females? If the temperature falls below 25 °C, he has not enough power for singing. Crvrčak's life remind somehow of the football championship: four years to prepare and train to be brilliant just one summer. Once the late spring sunshine catches him, he has only three months to do three things: sing a deafening live concert, love and die!
DALMATIA – Heart of the Mediterranean
Although the “official” (for want of a better word) natural sites of Dalmatia are located in its northern area, it is in its central part, around the City of Split, where the true heart lies. This, the largest Dalmatian tourist region, encompasses what is also the country’s largest county, the County of Split-Dalmatia. The main Dalmatian islands are situated in its waters, as are several rivieras with lovely beaches, the imposing rugged mountains which rise practically right from the shores, while the broad hinterland contains a wide range of very precious natural heritage sites. And if, as many claim, Dalmatia is the true Mediterranean, then it is its central part, around Split, that is the heart of the whole of the Mediterranean.
From the apartments you can enjoy the view on the island of Brač– the tallest island with the peak of Vidova gora (778m). On the right side you can see Pučišća, second-largest town on Brač. Stone and its carving are a recognisable symbol of the traditional lifestyle of the island of Brač. In this respect, Pučišća is a most notable town. There are as many as three quarries in its vicinity, part of numerous buildings and sculptures. One such is rumored to be the White House in Washington DC. An ancient tradition of stone carving is continued today by a school where this craft is taught. It is only one of three such schools in Europe, and is notable for the traditional tools and techniques being used and taught, unchanged since the Renaissance period.
DO NOT MISS OUT - DUBROVNIK!
Not only crystal clear Adriatic Sea, water has rich in karst area created a special attraction inside the country to Imotski. These are spaced karst Modro Jezero and Crveno Jezero - the Blue and the Red Sea. The Red Sea is a steep Karstdoline with about 200m depth and a cave-like Seeuntergrund. The lake is like the top of a giant large funnel. The blue lake is greater. The steep slopes can be overcome through narrow path. As a reward waiting for you the water with a refreshing dip, because you can swim in the lake.
The Cetina River is the most water-rich waters of Dalmatia, it rises 385m in altitude in the Dinaric mountains and flows into the Mediterranean Sea. The turquoise river bed makes for a fabulously beautiful ambiance. In the 15th and 16 Century, however, the river was plagued by pirates. Do you want to see how pirates at that time put people in fear? A spectacular pirate battle from the 13th Century take place every year after 15 August.
The river Jadro is small and only 4 km long. However, it has a very rich water resources for the surrounding villages and thus supplies the population of Split, Kastela and Trogir with drinking water. In addition, the river is also home to an endangered species of trout.
The Croatian coastline has the largest number of islands and is the most intended in the Mediterranean. The length of the coastline is 1.880 km and, together with the shores of the 1.244 islands, isles, crags and reefs, extends to an amazing 6.278 km. The number of coves, bays, nooks and crannies and secret places along those shores is difficult to comprehend. All are washed by crystal clear seas and boast a wide variety of aspects: from craggy and harsh rock-bound steep slopes swooping down into sea to the wide and gentle areas sunk into lush Mediterranean vegetation.
