What can you expect from Croatia?

It is finally “cool to be Croatian” and thanks to the World Cup and extended media coverage, Croatia no longer really needs an introduction the way it once used to. The whole world now knows Croatia exists! Not only is Croatia the country I was born in, but it’s also the country I have called home for the last five years. It goes without saying that you can expect all the posts on my blog about Croatia to be filled with a natural love and passion for people to visit my beautiful country.

So what can you expect from visiting Croatia? I always say that Croatia is the whole world in one country, there is something for everyone no matter what kind of traveller you are. Each region of Croatia is respectfully different and unique. If you’re looking for some sun and sea, you’ll fall in love with dalmatia. If you’re looking for a cosmoplitain city vibe, Croatia’s captial city Zagreb is ideal for you.
