Croatia is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. In 2005 a poll among journalists named Croatia a top destination, owing to its well-preserved Mediterranean atmosphere.
Dubrovnik, located on the Adriatic Sea, is a city visitors will not soon forget. It is one of the nation's top tourist destinations, and for good reason. Since the 7th century, Dubrovnik has survived many battles and has a rich heritage. Just off the coast of Dubrovnik, visitors can view or take a ferry to the spectacular Elafiti Islands.
Some prefer to sightsee on bicycles. Biking in Croatia is popular for those who prefer to leisurely explore the countryside. Many visitors find that Korcula is best seen by bike, and the island offers many things to see and do while relaxing on the coastline or scuba diving on the colorful Adriatic reefs just off Korcula's beaches.
Among the 1,185 islands of Croatia are the Green Islands, home to hundreds of lemon and orange trees. The citrusy fragrances drift through the trees, adding charm and charisma to the ambiance and delighting visitors.
Tourists to Croatia are always enchanted by the folklore, the pride of Croatian culture. Throughout the ages, generations of Croatians maintain Croatia's history and significant events as folklore is a native tradition to be cherished. Visiting the diverse Mediterranean villages and islands of Croatia give tourists ample opportunity to hear folklore through narrative, song and dance.
