With its sublime stretch of Adriatic coast, Croatia has long been regarded as one of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Despite the tragedy of war, its charms remain largely intact and most of the major tourist areas have been lovingly recreated. Croatia is unique, not only for its crystal clear, clean blue sea and thousands of dazzling islands but also for a thousand years of different cultures.

Holidaymakers can enjoy long bike rides though mountain paths, horse riding though picturesque meadows, soaking up the sun on a yacht, or exploring the secrets of the capital Zagreb.

The beautiful historical town of Dubrovnik has seen a renaissance in tourism, with its well preserved medieval buildings it is one of UNESCO’s listed World Heritage Sites. The Dubrovnik Riviera and the surrounding islands are increasingly popular destinations.
