In Pictures: Mediterranean Croatia

At the heart of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is Dubrovnik, a town of just 40,000 that  in medieval times was an independent city-state and rival to Venice. Nowadays the distinctive stone-and-red-tile buildings are seen by the many tourists who come to see one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Cavtat, a simple boat ride away from   Dubrovnik, is a popular tourist destination with restaurants and shops filling the seafront. It is no wonder tourists flock here, the scenery is picturesque. If you’re looking for Mediterranean beauty, but don’t wish to pay the price tag that often comes with European destinations, Croatia is perfect. This Eastern European country is truly breathtaking and affordable. A great way to see Croatia and its many islands is to grab a boat ride. There are many islands such as Mljet, an hour from Dubrovnik, that are only reachable by boat, and they really are worth the trip. Like the rest of the Mediterranean, Croatia is home to delicious wine. Perhaps not as famous as Italian or French wine, Croatian wine will not disappoint. Croatia enjoys a vibrant culture full of food, wine, and family. A rich history of struggles and triumphs ensures that Croatians still value culture and family.

Croatia is as the Mediterranean once was. It is one of Europe’s lesser known gems—but one of the most beautiful.

With over a thousand islands, vibrant cities like Dubrovnik, and quaint villages with stone-and-red-top buildings…there is a lot to see in Croatia.

Tourists are already flocking to this Eastern European country to make the most of the beautiful surroundings, sunshine, and affordable costs. Indeed, head outside the main tourist areas and you will find Croatia to be a very affordable country.

Most of Croatia’s coast is along the historic Dalmatian region—a place that perfectly meshes Italian and Eastern European inspirations in architecture, food, and even language. The coast is dotted with fairytale towns full of narrow, cobbled streets, café-covered squares, and tall-steepled churches. This is where Italians head for vacation—which says it all really.

Although the “East” is still often a fraction of the cost of Western-European countries, you’ll find modern amenities, global brands, and sophisticated city living alongside immaculately-preserved medieval and Renaissance architecture.

Croatia, with its Mediterranean lifestyle and low costs, really should be on your radar.
