The international men’s cycling race Tour of Croatia started today, through six stages on a route of over 1000 kilometers throughout Croatia!
Tour of Croatia started today in Osijek and the goal of the first day is Koprivnica.
Tomorrow, the race moves to Karlovac, passing through Plitvice Lakes and Plitvice Valleys, and ending in Zadar, so this route is considered very atractive!
The start of the third stage, scheduled for Thursday, April 19, will begin in Trogir, which could significantly impact the overall ranking since its goal is at the top of Croatia – St. Jura on Biokovo (1762 meters). The weekend’s fourth stage begins on April 20 from Starigrad (NP Paklenica) to Crikvenica, while Saturday brings new excitement with the „royal“ stage. This stage runs from Rabac to Poklon (PP Učka), where cyclists will first climb from the Istrian to the Kvarner side.
The final stage begins on Sunday, April 22 in Samobor, with the final goal, along with the already traditional finish in the city of Zagreb, at St. Mark’s Square, where the winner will be crowned.
With the fact that this is one of the most important sport events of the year, the Tour of Croatia is rated by many as the most beautiful tourist postcard that Croatia sends to the world. Six days of footage from all over Croatia are broadcasted on more than 170 different television stations in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia.
