Description: Detailed large political map of Croatia showing names of capital cities, towns, states, provinces and boundaries with neighbouring countries.
Croatia is in Southeastern Europe and stretches along the Adriatic coast bordering Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary and Slovenia, with the River Danube running along its northern border. The official language is Croatian, although ethnic minorities speak Serbian, Slovenian, Hungarian and Italian. Most people dealing with tourism generally speak English.
Croatia boast a magnificent coastline with over one
thousand islands dotting the clear blue waters of the
Adriatic rendering it a favorite resort for all beach
lovers. Another fascinating aspect of Croatia are its
historical sites, such as the walled city of Dubrovnik,
Split and Trogir, all three UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Other historical sites are towns of Hvar and Korčula on
the Dalmatian Islands as well as the golden Byzantine
mosaics of Poreč’s St Euphrasius Basilica in Istria.
Zagreb, the capital permeates a truly European atmosphere, offering architectural sites, historic castles, quality wines and a culture for the culinary art.
For outdoor activities the mountain ranges of the Northern Velebit National Park are a haven for hiking and rock climbing, while the Cetina Valley makes a challenging site for white-water rafting. The Adriatic offers ideal conditions for sailing, scuba-diving and sea-kayaking in sites such as Zlatni Rat on Brač or the pebble beach of Baška on Krk.
Croatia’s climate varies a lot offering continental conditions in the north and Mediterranean ones on the Adriatic coast.
