Get to know Croatia
Croatia is a country with a thousand islands and excellent hosts who will be happy to tell you stories about the diverse traditions, cultural heritage, and exciting history of the country where the Mediterranean and Central and Southeast Europe meet. Leave your worries behind on one of the secluded beaches of the most indented coasts on the planet, explore the picturesque towns by the sea or inland, reconnect with nature in one of the eight national parks, and taste the unique local dishes.
In a relatively small area, you can find many different cultures, mentalities, dialects, climates, lifestyles, cuisines and examples of cultural and historical heritage, as a result of which Croatia has been dubbed ‘A Land of a Thousand Islands´ or `The Mediterranean as it Once was´.
Croatia’s climate varies according to the region: from mild continental in the mountain and sub-mountain regions, to Mediterranean in the coastal region and sub-Mediterranean in the hinterland.
Croatia is the best ecologically preserved area in Europe, with the cleanest sea and the largest number of national parks and natural areas in relation to the size of its territory – a total of 8 national parks. Plitvice Lakes National Park, included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, is most certainly the best known.
Traditional Croatian cuisine is based on Slavic cuisine with influences from neighbouring countries.
Croatia is also the home of the tie, gingerbread hearts, cheese and Pag lace.
