Summer destination. CROATIA-Full of sun

 

If you’ve heard of Croatia, it’s most likely because of football (3rd in the world on football WC 2008.). I’ve been to different continents and a big percentage of Croatia’s fame is sports. But recently more and more people know about Croatia’s coastline. It is a relatively young country (Croatian independence was internationally recognized in January 1992) but it still managed to become the part of European Union.

Beautiful nature and clean environment make distinctive three parts in Croatian geography. The one where everybody would like to spend summer holiday is the coast of the Adriatic sea. It is a rugged coastline with 1.245 big and small islands, peninsulas and coves.

Croatia is full of sun but if you’re not a type of person who wants to spend their summer swimming in the sea, there’s a mountain part which is elevated and full of beautiful clean rivers and waterfalls.
