ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Croatia is a land of wonders…miles and miles of Adriatic Sea beaches, fishing ports, Roman ruins, thermal spas, pristine forests and waterfalls, plus a culture like no other European country.
Dubrovnik, nicknamed the "jewel of the Adriatic", is a favored travel stop due to its architectural heritage. Zagreb, the largest and the capital city, is an important tourist center, attracting well over a million visitors annually. On the north side of the city is the historical district with its squares, churches, palaces and galleries.
Each of Croatia's regions offers its own unique attractions and charms. A trip to Croatia must include island hopping, using the various ferries. Croatia has more than 1,000 islands dotting its Adriatic Sea coastline – some quite large and inhabited, some small and deserted.
The Croatians are some of the friendliest people in Europe and will help make the journey as interesting and pleasant as possible.
