This is appealing for tourists who want to get away from the concrete jungles. A Yale University survey completed ranked Croatia 12th in the world for preserved, unpolluted natural habitat. Croatia came in well above other European countries traditionally considered unspoilt such as Italy, Spain and Greece.
To say Croatia’s geography is diverse is an understatement. Within its 56,542 square km expanse you can find a little bit of something.

The climate ranges from continental to Mediterranean. visit the beautiful Adriatic shores one week and then take in some incredible mountain vistas the next.

With its incredible expanse of Adriatic Sea coastline, beautiful weather, unusual architecture and unspoilt landscapes, Croatia is very popular for tourists.
Accessibility and Infrastructure
