Croatia Holidays and Travel Guide

Stretching alongside the Adriatic Sea, with coastline of a thousand islands, Croatia has been for a long time one of the most popular holiday and travel destinations in the Mediterranean. Not only with the Europeans, but also with international travellers and holidaymakers. Every year more than 10 million visitors spend their annual holidays in Croatia, visiting its coastline, islands, villages, and national parks - from the Istrian peninsula in the northwest to Dubrovnik in the south.

In the past few years, the top destinations were Rovinj, Poreč, Umag, Medulin and Dubrovnik. This year, in 2020, despite the Covid-19 epidemic, Croatia's visitor numbers are around 50-60% of the usual. Most of the visitors come from Germany, Slovenia, Austria and now in August from Italy. The most popular destinations this year have been the island of Vir, town of Rovinj, Medulin, Novalja (Pag island), Mali Lošinj island and the capital Zagreb.
