Croatia Rebuilding

Civil war broke out in the republic as ethnic Serbs, backed by the federal Yugoslav People's Army (JNA), battled with the Croats for territory.

Tourists are returning to the Adriatic Coast of Croatia again. And what a beautiful coast it is too. The coastal road is very wind and does get crowded in high season.

To enjoy the Croatian coastline at it's best, try and plan a drive along the rocky coast before the peak season of July and August.

Croatia Tourism

If you're travelling around Croatia on a budget there are plenty of private apartments and rooms along the coast that are inexpensive, clean, good quality and a great way to meet the locals.

Now firmly back on the tourist map, Croatia offers visitors the choice of some of Europe’s finest coastal and mountain scenery as well as historic and vibrant cities such as Dubrovnik, Zadar and Zagreb.

Some of the places are even above restaurants; for good value seafood and other traditional Croatian dishes.

The Croatian Adriatic coast is one of the world's most friendliest naturist destinations - with the first naturist beach opened on the island of Rab, in 1934.

Around Croatia

Dubrovnik-Neretva County

Known for its fascinating landscapes, mild climate and interesting smaller settlements, the Dubrovnik coastal region is now marketed as the Dubrovnik Riviera.


The city of Dubrovnik is situated in the very south of the Republic of Croatia, surrounded by a group of islands known as the Elaphite archipelago.

A world heritage site, Dubrovnik is definitely worth a visit. Walk around the walls of the old city and think of all the history that's passed through her narrow streets.

If you're in the area from around July 10th to August 25th, you'll be treated to numerous street performances as part of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival.


Korčula is a fortified town on the protected east coast of the island of Korčula.


Lastovo, once a part of the Dubrovnik Republic, is situated south of the island of Korčula.


Mljet is the first large island we come upon while sailing in Croatian waters the from the southeast.

The Island of Mljet has a daily ferry connection with Dubrovnik and in the summer, with the Islands of Korčula and Lastovo.

Pelješac Peninsula

Ston was one of the most important towns in the Dubrovnik Republic.

Novalja - Island of Pag

Located on the island of Pag, Novalja is famous for its wonderful beaches.

Ferries run from Prizna to the island of Pag, or you can travel by land via the Pag bridge.

Buses link Novalja with Rijeka, Zagreb and Split.

Pag Island Accommodation.


A typical day on The Island of Rab starts with a healty breakfast before going to the beach and enjoying the sun and sea; followed by a light lunch and a nice nap in the shade of pine trees. Of course, some people prefer to bike, hike, and even kayak around the island.

Rab Island Accommodation.

Split-Dalmatia County

Split-Dalmatia County is the largest county in Croatia.

Enjoy the Croatian coast from Zadar to Dubrovnik.


Located on the Adriatic Coast, Split is the largest city in Dalmatia and second largest city in Croatia.

Many of Split's historical and cultural buildings can be found within the walls of Diocletian's Palace so it's a great place to start a walking tour of Split.


Zadar has a nicer sunset than California - so said Alfred Hitchcock in 1964, thanks to its position on the East Adriatic.

Zadar Airport is located 8km from the city of Zadar.

Hotels in Zadar.


Experience the past and the present of Zagreb by passing through the streets of the Lower and Upper Town; by visiting the famous arcades and sculptures of Mirogoj Park Cemetery; by entering inside the Zagreb Cathedral; or by taking in the everyday lively atmosphere of Dolac Market.

Even though there are four tenses in Croatian that express the past (perfect, pluperfect, imperfect, and aorist), only one is commonly used in everyday conversations. This is the perfect tense or 'perfekt' as it is called in Croatian.

How to Speak Croatian?
It's handy to get a few Croatian phrases under your belt before you travel to Croatia.
