Croatia emerged as an independent state in 1990 with the break up of the Republic of Yugoslavia. Its ease of travel (2-3 hour flight) from anywhere in Europe, its spectacular coastline, cuisine and cultural heritage make it a natural holiday destination.

The coastline, which faces Italy across the Adriatic Sea, is studded with over 1200 islands of which 48 are inhabited. The total coastline length of the islands and the heavily indented mainland coast is an extraordinary 5800 kilometres with hundreds of pebble and sandy beaches, sheltered bays and stunning headlands. Croatia has a Mediterranean climate similar to Italy or the South of France. The Croatian coast typically experiences over 300 sunshine days a year. The Adriatic is beautifully clear and unpolluted and with summer sea water temperatures of well over 20 degrees is ideal for swimming.
