The Adriatic coastline is by far Croatia’s most popular tourist region with around 11 million tourists each year. The coastline and the islands all make up a continuous Mediterranean tourist destination spanning from the smallest island village and hidden cove to a national park or urban coastal town.
Crowned with 1,244 islands, islets, rocks and reefs, and characterised by cleanliness and clearness, the Croatian Adriatic can claim to be among the top sailing destinations in the world.
To visit Croatia is to become part of its landscape of natural wonders.
Its national parks may be the country’s best known conservation areas, but even in the nation’s capital, Zagreb, visitors are surrounded by protected regional parks, forests and even a mountain.
Dubrovnik, Croatia has always been a popular destination, a so-called “pearl of the Adriatic”.
With the massive fame of “Game of Thrones” tv-show, the town became a major touristic hotspot for the fans of the iconic series.
The city became so popular there were even ideas to limit the number of visitors in the walled Dubrovnik Old Town, well-known from the tv as the set of King’s Landing.
Croatia is a small European country that sits along the Adriatic Sea. It was part of Hungary for many years and was joined to Yugoslavia in 1918. In 1991, it declared independence from Yugoslavia.
