Known for its spectacular beaches, stunning national parks and beautiful historic buildings, Croatia is a must-see destination in Eastern Europe. Since the regional conflicts of the 1990’s that saw Croatia gain its independence, it has once again become a buzzing tourist hotspot with people flocking there every year to laze in the sun, take in the sights of cities such as Dubrovnik and Zagreb, as well as marvelling at the majesty of mother nature in the wide range of National Parks.
Croatia’s Adriatric coastline is dotted with over 1,000 islands, uninhabited for the most part, so it’s no wonder the beaches of Croatia routinely top the lists of Europe’s most beautiful. The crystal clear, turquoise waters appear endless due in part to the tiny pebbles that make up most of the coastline, instead of sand.
Parks such as Plitvice, Krka and Paklenica have a wide variety of natural beauty to offer in spectacular lakes and waterfalls while offering a myriad of hiking trails and rock climbing opportunities as well as a stunning array of wildlife to see.
Dubrovnik has long been the city to visit when in Croatia however it is even more globally recognisable since it was used as the city of Kings Landing in the Game of Thrones tv series. Along with the capital of Zagreb and the second largest city, Split, you will have a plethora of things to do and see including museums, restaurants, galleries and theatres. Croatia is an eclectic mix of old and the new Europe and is one place you definitely won’t want to miss.
