There is much to see and do on a Floricici vacation in Croatia
Croatia has been the site of conflict many times over the centuries. It was very important to Europe because it was one of the easiest routes to the East. Charlemagne campaigned in that area, and it was also visited by the Mongolian Huns. Although Croatia was Christianized around 600 ad, it was never required to use Latin as its official language. Services were conducted in Croatian, and written in the local alphabet. In recent history, it was a part of Yugoslavia. Croatia has since been reorganized as a country in its own right, blossoming as an up and coming tourist resort home to a great range of fabulous Floricici villas and apartments.

Should you go for a walk or a bike ride, check in with some of the local farms that are opening their doors to tourists. This practice, call agri-tourism, is a good way for visitors to gain insight into the life in the area. Sample some of the local foods while you are there. The area is well known for its wines and for the olive groves. Olives and olive oil are a staple in Croatia. If you grow tired of the quiet life, drive over to lively Labin. In that busy Italian speaking town, there is quite a lot going on at night. Or for a more educational trip, you might want to look at the castle in Pazin, now used as a museum. You could even drop in on the monthly market here. Also, the festival of St. Bartholomew is celebrated toward the end of August, and that will also bring out some sights that might not ordinarily be seen.
