Croatia - a brief guide

Croatia extends from the foothills of the Julian Alps in the north-west and the Pannonian Plain in the east, over the Dinara mountain range in its central region, to the Adriatic coast in the south. Area of Croatia is 56,542 km2, with an additional 31,067 km2 of territorial waters. Population in Croatia is 4.5 million people. Capital of Croatia is Zagreb (779.145 inhabitants - the administrative, cultural, academic and communication centre of the country). The capital, Zagreb, is a typical central European metropolis, combining elegant nineteenth-century architecture with plenty of cultural diversions and a vibrant café scene. At the northern end of the Adriatic coast, the peninsula of Istria contains many of the country's most developed resorts, with old Venetian towns like Rovinj rubbing shoulders with the raffish port of Pula. Further south lies Dalmatia, a dramatic, mountain-fringed stretch of coastline studded with islands. Dalmatia's main towns are Zadar, an Italianate peninsula town, and Split, an ancient Roman settlement and modern port which provides a jumping-off point to a series of enchanting islands. It's on Brac, Hvar, Vis and Korcula that you'll find the best of the beaches, as well as some lively fishing villages. South of Split lies the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, site of an important festival in the summer and a magical place to be, whatever the season. The Adriatic Coast, with its 1185 islands, islets and reefs is considered to be one of the most impressive coastlines in Europe. Finding a satisfactory way to explore this ravishing two thousand kilometers coastline in one holiday is impossible. Sorry, you will have to come back again ;-) Croatia is blessed with truly most glorious coastline which has miraculously escaped the over-development of some other Mediterranean holiday destinations.
If you think life has become too hectic and commercialized regain your tranquility in Croatia. Relax in superb unspoiled scenery, bathe in unpolluted waters and enjoy the healthy range of locally sourced and naturally produced food. Welcome to Croatia!
