The Republic of Croatia is situated in central and Southeast Europe, its capital is Zagreb, its citizens speak Croatian, and although a member of the European Union, its currency is the Croatian Kuna.

The Mediterranean climate made it a perfect place to visit any time of the year, in dry, warm summers and moderate, wet winters.

Croatia has been developing its tourism since the 19th century, it reached over 14 million tourist visitors in 2013, and it works to welcome more in the future.

Like much of Europe, Croatiaโ€™s history has left magnificent medieval towns and ruins settled by Ancient Greeks, Romans, Venetians, and Ottomans. The Diocletianโ€™s Palace in Split, built in the 300s for the Roman emperor Diocletian, the Dubrovnik City Walls, Euphrasian Basilica built by Byzantines in the 6th century, and the Salona Roman ruins, are the most prominent amongst tourists.

What makes Croatia exceptional is its stunning natural attractions, such as Plitvice Lakes and the Krka National Park, they are both renowned for their series of terraced lakes and waterfalls, and mountain regions such as the Smiljan village which is Nicola Teslaโ€™s place of birth. The country also shares Adriatic coastlines with Albania, Italy, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, which offers its visitors the opportunity for island-hopping amongst its large archipelago of 718 islands.ย 

The rich culture of Croatia is a mixture of past customs brought with traces of ancient Greek, Romans, and Bronze Age civilizations resulted in: unique music, dance, Venetian Renaissance periodโ€™s art, and Catholicism architecture.

Traditional Croatian food differs a great deal from one area to another, for example, Mediterranean cuisines along the Dalmatian coast and islands is based on fish, green vegetables, and seasonings. On the other hand, food in Zagreb is similar to central European countries, which includes meat dishes, and side dishes typically made from potatoes, root veggies, and cabbage.

Finally, the Republic of Croatia is one of the unique European destinations that amazes its visitors with its wide range of memorable touristic areas, nature, history, culture, and traditions.ย
