When advising travelers on where to go in Croatia, my first questions are directed to possible sea lovers.

The country is packed with sites full of life – cultural and historical heritage, stunning towns, and plenty of natural wonders. The long and indented coastline boasts more than 1000 islands. The neighboring countries complement Croatia’s untouched nature with variety and proximity of a different kind of treat: emerald green lush and fresh Slovenia, surrounded by the stunning Alps and decorated with attractive lakes, vineyards and towns.
