Welcome to croatia!

One of Europe’s vacation hotspots, Croatia still manages to maintain an authentic, old world charm. Located in southeastern Europe on the eastside of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia, with its mild winters and temperate summers, has a wealth of cultural, historical, and natural sights and scenery. Zagreb, the capital city, is a center of cultural activity, including the Museum of Contemporary Art. Walk the battlements of Dubrovnik, a historical coastal city and a UNESCO World Heritage site, or explore the Roman ruins and Diocletian’s Palace in the ancient port city of Split. Hike along the turquoise Plitvice Lakes, another UNESCO site, surrounded by waterfalls and forested hills. Sailing and sea kayaking are excellent ways to take in the coastal islands and archipelagos along the 2000 km-long coastline. Soak up the peace, quiet, and sun on the sandy beaches of the largely car-free Elaphite Islands. Croatian cuisine, while diverse in content, is marked by the use of high-quality locally sourced ingredients, particularly olive oils.
