From the shores in the South Dalmatian islands bathed by the gently sun of the Adriatic Sea to the top of Dinara, the highest peak in the country, through swamps filled with wildlife in Posavina or the Mediterranean richness of the forests in Mljet… Croatia’s natural beauty never ends.
Dive into one of the ecologically best-preserved parts of Europe since the 10% of the country is protected. Explore its eight National Parks and eleven Nature Parks among which are the Plitvice Lakes, the only natural good recognized by UNESCO. Its sea is the purest in Europe according to the European Commission and some of its beaches are considered the most beautiful locations in the world.
Feel the energy in this green paradise with a privileged climate and a unique fauna, such as griffon vultures, wild horses, brown bears or dolphins, and flora with more than 3000 different species in certain locations on the Velebit mountain and Kvarner islands. The best place to get lost, the best place to find yourself!
Think family adventures in the forest, romantic moments under waterfalls and pushing yourself to the limit with your friends by stunning lake basins and on exhilarating mountain peaks. But perhaps the best part of all is that there’s no need to travel long distances to enjoy this wealth of fantastic scenery.

Culture and History

History at every step ! Losing yourself in a tangle of charming medieval streets, falling deep into thought over an early Christian mosaic or stepping into an impressive Byzantine cathedral will remind you of how the spirits of Central Europe and the Mediterranean converge in Croatia. UNESCO has even recognised Croatia’s unique cultural heritage by adding it to the World Heritage List. This singular rendezvous of civilisations and influences is also reflected on the dining table, where meat, fish, vegetables and wine prevail. The result is an original national cuisine that is sure to delight your taste buds. The crossroads between East and West, Central European and the southern spirit of the Mediterranean, Croatia has developed a wide artistic, literary and musical tradition over the years. A rich cultural heritage that lives beyond museums, churches and cathedrals.
