INTRODUCING CROATIA
Local Name: Hrvatska
Once part of the Roman, Ottoman and Austrian Habsburg empires, Croatia finally declared its independence from the former Communist state of Yugoslavia in 1991.

Ethnic fighting in the western Balkans (in the 1990s) brought havoc to Croatia; historic cities and towns like (Dubrovnik and Zadar) were devastated; and even temporarily abandoned.

Happily, Croatia's tourism is on the rebound, as its coastal resorts, Roman ruins, the capital city of Zagreb, and very pleasant weather make it one of the hottest destinations on the continent. Croatia is a beautiful land, with a jagged coastline (the Dalmatian), one dotted with dozens of islands. Inland, the lower mountains and hills of the Dinaric Alps slice through the country. If you are a nature lover, Croatia offers camping, mountain hiking or biking, rafting, scuba diving and skydiving and more. Besides its natural beauty, it also offers a unique history with a mixture of cuisines, many internationally recognised hotels and helpful individuals.
