It is no secret that tourism is booming in Croatia, but just because all your friends and family have been here and got the t-shirts doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experience this amazing country yourself - there are many reasons why Croatia is so popular. 

Croatia is a country of more than a thousand islands and plenty of sunshine, making this a holiday destination of choice for many travellers. Then, many people come here to see the Roman ruins and the historic architecture such as the Diocletian Palace in Split and the walled city of Dubrovnik. In fact, Croatia has seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites for you to enjoy, all within close distance of one another. 

But of course, no visit to Croatia would be complete without a visit to the stunning white sand beaches of the Dalmation coast or island hopping in the summer, including a stop off at the island of Pag, which is the one of the biggest party areas in Europe with bars and discos operating 24 hours a day during the summer. So whether it’s history and architecture or sun and summer fun you are looking for, Croatia is where you will find it. 

Croatia enjoys 162,900 hours of sun each year. The sun worshipers paradise, Croatia gets even more sun than Australia! If you have been researching Croatia for a while, you may have heard about the seafront in Croatia that goes by the name of Dalmatian Coast that we mentioned above. As I am sure you have wondering, the dog breed that got worldwide attention for the hit Disney film “101 Dalmatians, comes from this region. Those cute black and white spotty creatures have been known in the area since the age of the Roman empire. Cats are also a big deal in Croatia, they are absolutely everywhere. Usually to be found looking for attention for tourists or having a midday snooze in the sun.

The uniquely named ‘Hum’ in Croatia is officially the world's smallest town according to the Guiness World book of records. It is believed that the town has a population of as small as 17 to 23! 

For fans of the actor Russel Crowe in the movie Gladiator, the amphitheatre in Pula is definitely a must visit. The story is told that one of most bloody Roman gladiator fights took place here. The 6th largest amphitheatre in existence can also be found at Istria in Croatia and is fully conserved, one of only 3 in the world.
