Croatia is an Eastern European country with a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Encompassing more than a thousand islands, it's also crossed by the Dinaric Alps. Its inland capital, Zagreb, is distinguished by its medieval Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and diverse museums. The major coastal city Dubrovnik has massive 16th-century walls encircling an Old Town with Gothic and Renaissance buildings.
Perfect Weather: Temperatures start warming up in April, though it's still too cool for swimming and spring rains are common. In May and June, temperatures nationwide are warmer and days longer, making this an ideal time to visit.

- The Republic of Croatia is a country in Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain, the Balkans and the Adriatic Sea.
- Its shape resembles that of a crescent or a horseshoe, and its mainland territory is split in two non-contiguous parts by the short coastline of Bosnia and Herzegovina around Neum. The country is divided into 20 counties.
- In Zagreb, visitors can take in the historic monuments of Gornji Grad, or Upper Town; the Cathedral; St Mark's Church, noted for its tiled roof; and the Sabor, the Croatian parliament, before moving on to the museums of 19th century Donji Grad, or Lower Town.
- The small medieval city of Trogir offers Romanesque cathedral and Venetian gothic stone buildings.
- Croatia has a varied climate, with continental climate conditions in the north and Mediterranean weather on the Adriatic coast. Most visitors to the country go between June and September, but in the late fall and early spring, it isn’t as hot and prices are also less expensive.
