Why Croatia has become such popular travel destination

Croatia is located in southern central Europe. Shaped somewhat like a horseshoe, the country offers an extremely long coastline along with nearly 1,200 islands that are situated offshore. The country is easily accessible, as Italy is located to the west and Slovenia is located to the north.

One of the reasons that so many travelers are flocking to Croatia is the coastline of the Adriatic Sea, which is nothing short of stunning. In addition, the coastline is also known as one of the cleanest in the world. The weather, which is warm and pleasant, provides the perfect backdrop for a wonderful vacation.

Throughout many of the villages scattered throughout the countryside, you will find winding stone streets that date back to the medieval ages, inspiring churches and monasteries, stone homes and rustic farms.

Adventure Travel

While the countryside of Croatia is certainly calm and tranquil, that does not mean that Croatia is short of excitement. There are also many options for adventure travel in Croatia, including opportunities for diving wrecks, sea kayaking, rock climbing, snorkeling, parasailing, taking a hot balloon ride and much more.

Travel to Croatia

Arriving in Croatia is relatively easy through a variety of different methods. Many people do choose to fly into the country into one of the international airports, but if you would like to enjoy more leisurely travel, there are options for that as well. You can easily take a train from one of the other European countries that will afford you the opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty for which Croatia is so well known.

The rich diversity of sights and attractions as well as the deep culture of this country has made Croatia a much sought after travel destination. It has even been named as a number one travel destination by Lonely Planet and is certainly a vacation option that should not be missed within one’s lifetime.
