Croatia Rebuilding

Civil war broke out in the republic as ethnic Serbs, backed by the federal Yugoslav People's Army (JNA), battled with the Croats for territory.

As Croatia rebuilds her country, the tourists are returning to the Adriatic Coast again. And what a beautiful coast it is too.

The coast does get very crowded in high season and the road is windy. To enjoy the coastline at it's best, try and plan a drive down the rocky, Croatian coast before the peak season of July and August.

Croatia Tourism

If you're travelling around Croatia on a budget there are plenty of private apartments and rooms along the coast that are inexpensive, clean, good quality and a great way to meet the locals.

Now firmly back on the tourist map, Croatia offers visitors the choice of some of Europe’s finest coastal and mountain scenery as well as historic and vibrant cities such as Dubrovnik and Zagreb.

Some of the places are even above restaurants; for good value seafood and other traditional Croatian dishes.
