Croatia is a fairy tale about a country of 1,185 islands, her rich heritage, magical nature, and her brave Men whose great deeds have put Croatia on the map of the world. It is a story about a land whose charms have been celebrated since ancient times.
Croatia has always been a place of true inspiration. Dante Alighieri spent some time living and travelling through and people say that his great-grandson Nicolo Alighieri was a pharmacist in Zagreb. There is a book “Dante`s path through Croatia” which describes his life in Croatia. George B. Shaw described Dubrovnik as the pearl of the Adriatic … And there are many more others who fell in love with this country.
A solid 1.778 km of Adriatic coast winds around innumerable coves, inlets and bays. Add in more than a thousand islands and you’re talking a whopping 5,835 km of seafront. If you can’t find the beach of your dreams here, it probably doesn’t exist.
