  • Such an inspiring article!! Could you be so kind and exchange the name of the first photo? The correct name is Vrboska Town in Hvar.

    Thank you!

  • We were quests of a family Croatia. As beautiful as the pictures are, it is even more beautiful in real time! The country and the people are wonderful! We will be going back again to visit and who knows, maybe to live. Truly one of Gods wonderful blessings to humanity.

  • God Bless Our Beautiful Croatia!
    Friendly People!
    The blues Adriatic Sea!
    Organic Food!
    !3th Century old European Country!
    WELCOME!

  • Beautiful photos but so many of Dubrovnik (which really is beautiful) but what about Šibenik (also a beautiful ancient town), Kornati archipelago…. Completely missed the middle Adriatic. Little disappointed seeing that I live on the island of Murter which is the gate to the Kornati archipelago.

  • These photos are truly amazing. I was talking to my brother-in-law whose family is from Croatia about taking a cruise including these areas. The next day my sister-in-law posts these. I am going to research this on Monday. Any suggestions. It is suppose to leave from Venice.

  • Que bonitas fotos me encanta si Dios quiere pronto estare visitando ese maravilloso Pais

  • The re is no prettier country then our “beautiful” Croatia.These pictures say it all.

  • Thank you for sharing such wonderful photographs of Croatia. I’m lucky enough to spend half the year in Porec, Istria and the country is even more beautiful in real life. The people are wonderful, the food is amazing and the local wines, prsut, truffles, olives and olive oils are absolutely divine. Anyone Thinking of a holiday should really consider Croatia.

    P.S. I would have loved to seen some more photos of Porec and the wonderful Istrian ‘Hinterland’ such as Hum (Worlds smallest town, Motovun, Groznjan etc. Maybe next time?
