Croatia is a breathtaking country situated along the Adriatic Sea in Eastern Europe. Popular with tourists, it offers the perfect combination of natural beauty and rich culture, with its stunning coastline, pristine beaches, sunny weather, delicious food and rich cultural legacy of historic sights. This unique destination encompasses over 1,000 islands, as well as the striking coastal city of Dubrovnik and the impressive capital city Zagreb.
Croatia is best known for its natural beauty and one of the highlights is without doubt its impressive coastline along the Adriatic Sea. The Adriatic Coast to the north and the Dalmatian Coast to the south, offer visitors ample opportunity to soak up the sunshine, admire the stunning coastal views and enjoy the beautiful white beaches. With an array of both sandy and pebbly beaches to choose from, visitors to the region will have no shortage of vantage points from which to admire the country’s crystal clear waters. Relax and soak up the sun or dive into the ocean and explore the underwater world with some snorkelling.
When you tire of admiring Croatia’s magnificent coastal views, you need only shift your gaze north to enjoy the views of the looming Dinaric Alps which hug much of the coastline. Why not take a stroll towards the mountains and explore the many waterfalls and picturesque lakes that the countryside has to offer.
If you’re more of a city person then Dubrovnik, often referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” should be your next stop. Sandwiched between Croatia’s rugged mountains and sparkling blue sea, Dubrovnik has something for everyone with its stunning architecture and spectacular views. Famous for its cobbled streets, medieval architecture and historic buildings, it also boasts an endless supply of modern hotels, chic boutiques and stylish bars. Throw in the beautiful weather, delicious food and friendly locals and it’s easy to see why Dubrovnik is fast becoming a modern alternative to the traditional Mediterranean holiday spots.
