Croatia

Croatia is one of our favourite countries to visit. It offers a wide range of activities and things that you can do or see. With its exquisite natural beauty, Croatia is under UNESCO’s world heritage and offers to the visitor the opportunity to walk through the gorgeous Medieval and Gothic buildings, castles and roads. You will also have the chance to swim in the crystal clear blue waters of the Adriatic and enjoy the sun. What’s more, Croatia has an exceptional cuisine to offer; mouthwatering dishes consisted, mainly, from seafood and incredible wine.

Croatia’s extraordinary island-speckled coastline is indisputably its main attraction. Part of the appeal lies in its diversity. Some of the most famous islands in Croatia re Hvar, Brac, Mljet, Vis and Korcula. If you want to stay out of the crowdy places, you can also visit some smaller islands like Krk, Lokrum, Brijuni islands, Cres etc.
