Crazy in Croatia? Nah, it's just August. The sun is hot, beaches are full and visitors just keep pouring in--at least until the last week of the month when things quiet down a little bit. If you don't have a reservation in a hotel, room or apartment along the coast, well don't expect much. You'll have to scuffle. All is quiet in Zagreb though; locals have fled to the coast and Zagreb nightclubs have closed and re-opened on the Adriatic. The music continues as many July festivals stretch into August.

FESTIVALS

Zadar

Full Moon Festival in Zadar

On the night of the full moon (usually around the beginning of the month), Zadar celebrates its folklore tradition by brining in dancers and musicians from outlying regions. Gastronomy is on display as well as taverns turn out traditional dishes and fishermen sell their catch on the boats lining Zadar's illuminated quays.

The victory over the Turks is celebrated around the beginning of August in the famous Sinjska alka. Raucous and boozy, this festival is a sort of medieval joust in which the young, male contestants try to put their lances through a series of rings. With the costumes, processions and music, it's one of Croatia's best local festivals.   Contact the Sinj tourist office for more information.

Pag Town

Pag Carnival

At the beginning of August, Pag celebrates the local legend of a Pag slave girl by dressing up in traditional costumes, cooking traditional dishes, and dancing to old island tunes. More information.
