Croatia, since the turn of the century, has started to move out of the shadow of other more established holiday destinations and now enjoys a rightful reputation as a fabulous place to visit in its own right. The country is situated in central Europe and shares borders with Slovenia in the west, Hungary in the north, Serbia in the east, Bosnia and Herzegovina in the south and is home to just over 4 million people.
Hvar Island. In recent times, Hvar Island has again featured on the Mediterranean cultural map, and has become an elite summer resort. No wonder then that Traveller magazine rated it among the 10 most beautiful islands in the world. Hvar Island seems to have a soul, a tangible aroma combining lavender, sage, rosemary, heather, mint, myrtle, thyme and countless other herbs which thrive in its soil, making it the Mediterranean's largest botanical garden. This is an island bursting with life, its vegetation, rocks and sea reflecting every ray of sunlight. This is an island where the Sun feels at home.
Brac Island. The island of stone, sea and sunshine is the largest in central Dalmatia. Brac island has craggy shores and brown rocks, but also boasts wonderful beaches, such as Zlatni Rat (Golden Tongue), a spectacular jewel of nature. From year to year the number of visitors to Brac Island increases, particularly since the island airport was built, and they all find it hard to resist the peculiar charm of this island, which has much to offer.
Split Riviera. Like an endless golden necklace, a series of sandy and pebble beaches stretch along the shore of Split Riviera. Split Riviera is a place in which nature set about creating masterpieces in a relatively small area, a meeting of the impossible has taken place. Here, the vast range of mountains plunges right down to the crystal sea and cool forests are not far from coves bathed in sunlight.
