April is a great month to visit Zagreb as the many flowering trees will be in full bloom. Visiting Dubrovnik is also a good idea as the weather is mild and the walled town is relatively empty of visitors.

Only the hardiest souls will want to venture into the water in southern Dalmatia but it's a great month to visit Plitvice Lakes National or Krka Waterfalls when the splendid cascades are swollen with water. Karlovac's rivers are also at their peak, to the delight of kayakers and rafters. See more on spring in Croatia.

FESTIVALS

With the milder weather comes a variety of events. Depending on the calendar, there may be Palm Sunday or Easter festivities. Here are some other April festivals:

Zagreb

Biennial of Contemporary Music

From 12-tonal to atonal, from sopranos to saxophones, ponder the newest sounds at this prestigious festival which takes place in odd-numbered years.

St. George's Day

Jurjevo on April 23 marks the beginning of spring and the growing season. St. George is the patron saint of harvests and fertility. Traditionally a villager dressed up as Green George and went from house to house trailed by kids and distributing good-luck twigs. The festival is still a big deal mainly in the country villages lying north of Zagreb where there are masses and festive bonfires.

Festival Sv. Marka (St Mark's Festival)

This music festival highlights classical music and local folk music performed by national and international artists. Most concerts take place in Zagreb's colourful St Mark's church.

Split

Days of Marulic--Croatian Theatre Festival

Held around April 22, this festival celebrates Split's most renowned playwright, Marko Marulic who completed Judita, the first truly "Croatian" literary work on April 22, 1501. There's lots of theatre from troupes around the country but it's all in Croatian. Of course.

Croatia Boat Show

As the name suggests, everything nautical is on display in this major, international show.

Porec

Porec Vinistra

From the end of April to the beginning of May, this Istrian city celebrates wine in all its glory. Istria is known for its Malvazija but other wines are also represented.
