Croatia

Europe

  Croatian Currency:  Croatian Kuna

With a history dating all the way back to the prehistoric period and a location at the crossroads of central and southeast Europe, Croatia is a multicultural country with lots of treasures to discover.

In Dubrovnik, red roof tops contrast against the deep blue Adriatic Sea, while in the Biokovo mountain range you'll find winding walking routes and fields scattered with colourful wildflowers. Meanwhile, islands like Hvar and Dugi Otok offer everything from a world famous clubbing scene to tranquil untouched nature.

Croatia is also home to eight national parks, multiple beach resorts and a whole host of Roman ruins. Get lost in the ancient Diocletian's Palace in Split, and marvel at the Colosseum-esque arena in Pula, one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world.
