If you want to avoid crowded roads and maybe you don’t enjoy ferries, in that case also the plane is a possibility. Namely, there are many regular flights to the airport of the island of Krk and to the airport in the town Pula. From those two destinations transport is organised to the hotel Kimen and also to the auto camp Kovacine.
In Croatia you will need for your expenses the Croatian money – KUNA. For 1 euro you’ll get about 7 kunas. Croatia is not an expansible country and everywhere you go, you’ll find good places to eat some of the delicious native food. People in Croatia usually speak English, often also Italian and German language and are very friendly and the most often prepared to help on everything – either to find a spot on the map or lead you to the best beach or place to eat.
