Discover Amazing Places in Croatia

Croatia is a country of two halves, with almost 600 miles of Mediterranean coastline, including some high-class resorts and harbours, coupled with a large interior of lakes and mountains. Head for the coast, even in the busiest times of the holiday season, and you can still find quiet beaches and remote coves away from the crowds, and if you can get to one of the one thousand islands, you’ll have even more privacy.
