Croatia Is the Affordable European Destination You Need to Visit

It is no surprise that Croatia’s tourism industry is on the rise.

This beautiful Central European Adriatic country, for its beautiful beaches, historic sites, picturesque national parks, and delicious food, was named the 2016 Readers’ Choice Destination by Tourism & Leisure magazine.

Frankly, after just a few years, the country’s popularity with international travelers shows no sign of decline.

One of Croatia’s most important gems is still the Dalmatian Islands, known for pristine beaches, limestone cliffs, crystal clear waters, and beautiful vineyards and olive trees. It is one of the country’s four historical regions. If you are planning a trip to Croatia, whether by plane or cruise, you may stop in this idyllic place.

But Croatia is more than just beautiful beaches. Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the best national parks in Europe and a must-see for nature lovers or adventurers. Throughout the country, gourmets, wine connoisseurs and coffee lovers can taste exquisite food, delicious wines and rich Javanese. And, if you’re a history or TV fan, many ancient sites in Croatia have been filming locations on the HBO show Game of Thrones.

You might think that all of these beauty, history, and Hollywood glamour could come with high prices, but arguably, the best part about traveling to Croatia is the friendliness of the budget. Since the country was part of Yugoslavia until 1991, it has been an inaccessible place for many travelers, making it an often overlooked vacation option.

Frankly speaking, if you are looking for a destination that can literally save your wallet, you will do better than this sunny Mediterranean region. However, if you still don’t believe it, there are some good reasons to make Croatia your next vacation.
