Croatian Copacabanas

Supporter madness is slowly heating up in Brazil and there is no doubt that heading out of the Maracana, overheating football fans will find refreshement on the iconic sandy beach of Copacabana. But, Croatia also has her Copacabanas – and this literally!
The sandy beach of Omiš, its Blue flag testifying to the absolute cleanliness of the sea, was long ago named after the best-known beach of Rio de Janeiro, and Brazilian influence has also spread into Continental Croatia.
Copacabana beach on the river Sava in Slavonski Brod thrills both children and adults when the asphalt simmers in the heat. Life in the largest Slavonian town of Osijek has a charmingly slow pace, and so citizens like to get rid of all the 'unnecessary' syllables, renaming their Copacabana on the river Drava Kopika. During the summer, both young and old find refreshment there, all the while dancing to the rhythm of the music coming from the numerous cafes.
Football fans who have not travelled to distant Brazil will no doubt cheer loudly this summer while watching the matches on big screens set up on the beautiful sandy beaches of the Adriatic. Well-known Bačvice, the largest beach in Split, plays to the rhythm of another 'sport' - Picigin, a sort of individual volleyball game played in shallow water with a small ball, a game invented there and which thousands of enchanted tourists adore.
Beach volleyball is a trademark of Bilin žal beach in Lumbarda on the island of Korčula, and, in its immediate vicinity, there is another small Copacabana, Lumbarajska Pržina. In Bol on the island of Brač, there is the famous Zlatni Rat, one of the largest beaches on the Adriatic, which changes its shape with the changing wind and is an eternal source of fascination for tourists who visit it with an almost religious fervour. Another special and vast spacious beach is situated under the San Marino hotel complex in Lopar on the island of Rab; Paradise beach is 1.5 km long and offers many activities for the whole family.
Any mention of the Croatian tourism offer is incomplete without mention of the enchanting city of Dubrovnik. Its Copacabana is called Banja and even the film crew of Game of Thrones could not resist sending the world a popular selfie from this heavenly place.
There is also Slanica on the island of Murter, the beach in Zaton, Bijeca in Medulin, Rabac, Makarska, Brela, Lokrum, Zrće in Novalja, on the island of Pag ... Croatian Copacabanas delight with their natural beauty, amenities and crystal clear sea along the entire Adriatic coast and its fascinating islands, at which we are all world champions!
