Croatia

Let Adriatic breezes waft over you on a white sand beach at the base of rugged mountains. Dine on fresh local seafood with an Italian flare. Eight national parks hold lakes, waterfalls and islands for explorers and sunbathers alike. Ancient cities, Roman ruins, and the sparkling Dalmatian coast make Croatia a destination unlike any in Europe.
