Croatia is located at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean, with Croatia’s Adriatic Sea coast containing more than 1,000 islands. Ranked one of the most popular summer destinations in the world, the bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the coast. Travelers may be interested in nautical tourism, as there are numerous marinas with more than 16 thousand berths, or cultural tourism relying on the appeal of medieval coastal cities. An abundance of markets offer boat-side visits when you anchor in a quiet bay, or inland street markets with displays of butchers, fishmongers, bakers and household products. It’s a small country, however, there are many things to do in the preserved natural inland areas such as rafting, canoeing, hiking, biking, sailing and fishing. Stay in a mountain resort or agritourismo for a local experience. They say if you like Italy, you’ll love Croatia!
