Map of Croatia

Croatia has always been a popular and interesting destination. The unique nature, beautiful beaches, clear sea, the islands, nice people and good food make the holiday in Croatia unforgettable. Croatia has a good geographical location with good transport connections for travel by car, plane and ship. Croatia lies on the Mediterranean right next to the “boot” of Italy. Italy is not directly adjacent to Croatia; the border is intersected with a smaller part of Slovenian coastal area. The other neighboring countries of Croatia are Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro. All neighboring countries, except Hungary, formed with Croatia in the past (1963-1992) the Republic of Yugoslavia. Now Croatia is independent and hoping for an early accession to the EU. Until then, Croatian currency is the kuna. Croatia is a small country, but offers almost 6000km coastline on the mainland and the island for a great holiday.


Croatia is a country for a nice relaxing holiday. The coast of Croatia is divided into three regions which one can choose as a tourist destination: the green peninsula of Istria, the Kvarner Bay and the southernmost region of Dalmatia, which is divided again into Northern Dalmatia, Central Dalmatia and Southern Dalmatia.

Istria has a clear advantage through its proximity to Western Europe. From Hamburg to the south of Istria, where the historically important and famous city of Pula is, and also the rich tourist resorts like Medulin, Banjole, Premantura, Pomer and Fazana the distance stays reasonable at just 1500km. A route is popular and acceptable for a family vacation in Croatia, although families with children should have a stopover in Austria when you choose a longer distance. Even closer are on the west coast of Istria the resorts Umag, Novigrad, Porec and Rovinj, on the east coast and the town Rabac. The heart of Istria is beautiful, forested green and offers a peaceful vacation in villas with swimming pools.

The Kvarner Gulf is a region with very good transportation system and attractive holiday destinations with cheap apartments. Kvarner Bay begins on the mainland after the Ucka tunnel with the historic town of Opatija. Further to the south is industrial city Rijeka, a part of Crikvenica Riviera together with Jadranovo, Dramalj, Crikvenica, Selce and Novi Vinodolski up to city Senj. In Kvarner Bay there are two largest islands on Croatian Adriatic, Island Krk and Island Cres. Holidays in private apartments or cottages are available on the island of Krk and Cres. The most famous places on the island of Cres are Cres town, by itself, as on the island of Krk, the same named town of Krk. Besides that, on the northern coast of the island of Krk are resorts Silo and Vrbnik, on the southeastern coast the resort Baska, Punat in the south and on the west coast are Malinska and Njivice.

Dalmatia owns the largest part of the Croatian coast. To the north of Dalmatia, there is the island of Pag with the same named city of Pag and Novalja with the party beach Zrce. Just south of the island of Pag we come to the coastal town of Zadar with the historical, car-free Old Town. Below the Krka National Park is the island of Murter with the resort Jezera, which is famous for the Big Game Fishing. Holidays in apartments in North Dalmatia are possible in the places Vodice, Sibenik, Primosten and Rogoznica.

Seamlessly joins Central Dalmatia with Trogir and island of Ciovo in before you come to the second largest city of Croatia - Split. Prior to Split there is the Central Dalmatian island group which consists of Solta Island, Brac Island, Hvar Island and Vis Island. The most popular places for holiday apartments in Croatia are Hvar, Vis and town of Bol - famous for its beach, Zlatni Rat (translated "Golden Horn"), which depending on tide changed its shape. Before Biokovo Mountains you can find the Omis Riviera with the resorts of Dugi Rat, Duce, Omis and Mimice, south of the Makarska Riviera with the resorts Brela, Baska Voda, Makarska, Tucepi and Podgora.

Further the coast of Southern Dalmatia is interrupted for several miles with Bosnia and Herzegovina territory. The only town on the Adriatic coast of Bosnia is called Neum. Directly on the opposite side is Peljesac peninsula, very suitable city for holidays in Croatia also known for excellent wine and excellent shellfish. Vacation in holiday houses on the island of Korcula is also a good choice. On the east coast you can find the same named town of Korcula and on the west coast the resort town Vela Luka. In the southernmost region of Croatia, the historical and cultural city of Dubrovnik triumphs on the coast. In times of war no city was more damaged than Dubrovnik. Until now, substantially all the monuments and memorials in the old town are renovated and restored. Dubrovnik has been the most visited city in Croatia. On the way to Montenegro, there is the resort town Cavtat.
