WHY GO TO CROATIA?

The Mediterranean as it used to be...
...before the developers came in and wrecked everything.You have walled cities instead of a wall of condos, local markets instead of souvenir shops, fresh locally caught fish instead of fast food.

A Long Splendid Coast
A solid 1778km (1102mi) of Adriatic coast winds around innumerable bays, inlets and coves. Add in about 1200 islands and you're talking a whopping 6000km (3720mi) of seafront. If you can't find the beach of your dreams here, it probably doesn't exist.

Good value for money
While costs have risen considerably over the last five years, Croatia still compares favorably with other EU countries on the Mediterranean, especially for meals and private accommodation.

Unspoiled nature
Clean air, clean water and plenty of meadows, forested mountains, lakes and rivers to explore are the legacy of a relatively under-industrialised country.

Easygoing people
"Nema problema" or "no problem" is the prevailing spirit which is part of the reason naturism took off here. Behave yourself and no one will pester you with nit-picking rules.

An exciting blend of cultures
The coast was long part of Italy while the interior was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. It's convoluted history has produced a taste for both pizza and pastries, classy architecture and Latin exuberance. And when was the last time you saw people dancing with swords?

It's safe
Street crime is rare, assaults on foreigners nearly non-existent and the country untangled itself from Balkan warring in 1995.
