Croatia Info & Services
Croatia is in the northern Mediterranean, on the Adriatic, opposite Italy. The coast consists of Istria, the Croatian Riviera and Dalmatia. It has 1,187 islands, but only 67 of them are inhabited. It is one of the most stunning and unspoiled landscapes in Europe, ideal for sailing.
The climate is warm and Mediterranean, providing the basis for pleasant holidays throughout the year. The sea temperature in summer is about 25ºC.
As well as its natural beauty, the country is also home to innumerable cultural and historical monuments and towns, such as the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pula, the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian in Split (a UNESCO world heritage site) and the Romanesque cities of Krk, Rab, Pag, Korcula and Trogir (a UNESCO world heritage site). Dubrovnik is an immaculately preserved 13th century fortified city with Renaissance towers, churches and harbour. The entire city is a UNESCO world heritage site.
There are many beautiful churches; the basilica of Euphrasius in Porec, the pre Romanesque church of St Donat in Zadar, Sibenik cathedral, and many others.
Croatia is a great place to enjoy yourself in many other ways – with excellent food, drink and entertainment wherever you go. Let us show you the best of the country!
