If you are planning a vacation in coastal Croatia from February to May there are a lot of interesting events to explore. These are perfect months for recharging batteries in the Croatian Adriatic.
May in Croatia generally brings warm weather and the start of tourist season throughout the many cities and islands. Although it isn’t the warmest time, it is the month where temperatures start to hike higher and are perfect for those who aren’t a fan of a scorching hot holiday. It’s also a perfect time for seeing the many sights that Croatia has to offer as the sun is not too hot and won’t impact your day. We discuss just some of the things you can do in Croatia this May.
Croatian Historical Sites
Croatia houses many UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the city of Dubrovnik itself, which is home to many historical buildings and sites that make it the cultured city that it is today. The architecture itself is reason enough to visit Dubrovnik.
Split also boasts a UNESCO World Heritage Site within its centre at the Diocletian’s Palace, which was built around 300AD and now makes up much of the centre.

May temperature peaks at around 19 degrees, which is good for the start of your summer tan but not too hot that it will permit you from going out during the day. In summer temperatures can often reach 30 degrees at peak times and this can make it quite difficult to be out all day without some form of respite. May makes for the perfect time to do many activities in Croatia such as hiking the beautiful mountains and riding a bicycle on the picturesque bike trails.
With the mild weather in May make sure to take advantage of Krka National Park walking trails in Sibenik where you can also enjoy the abundance of wildlife and 7 breath-taking waterfalls.
For more of a challenge, there is Biokovo mountain and Nature Park in Makarska which is the second highest mountain range in Croatia. There are many stops along the way that offer amazing views of the Dalmatia coast, so you don’t have to hike to the very top to truly appreciate what it has to offer.
