W ith 3700+ miles of beautiful coastline studded with more than more than 1200 islands, buildings dating back to Roman times and a rich cultural heritage, Croatia has turned into a top destination. Add the vibrant café scene and nightlife of its capital city, Zagreb, and you’ll understand why travelers from all over Europe have been coming here for years, both to vacation and to buy property.
In the north, Venetian towns such as Rovinj draw throngs to area resorts on the Istrian Peninsula. The amphitheater in the nearby town of Pula, founded by the Romans in 177 BC, is the sixth largest in the word. Further south along the stunning Dalmatian Coast the medieval city of Dubrovnik appears almost as if it were a movie set built upon an azure sea.
Although much less visited, the interior landscape at places such as Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site covered with forest and 16 lakes, is also captivating.
