17 photos that will make you fall in love with Croatia!

English poet, Lord Byron, described Croatia as the pearl of the Adriatic. And boy, was he right. This tiny country is made up of more than a thousand islands, 11 nature parks, 8 national parks and a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea. All of this contributes to making Croatia one of the most stunning countries I’ve ever seen.

But it’s not just the nature that makes this country beautiful and unique. It’s major coastal city, Dubrovnik, has massive 16th-century walls encircling an gorgeous Old Town. You have probably caught a glimpse of it while watching Game of Thrones. Zadar is home to the world’s first pipe organ that is played by the sea’s waves. And, there is a Sphinx in Split that was brought over from Egypt for Diocletian and is over 4,000 years old. I have to admit, I didn’t know too much about Croatia before visiting, but was blown away but the history, the architecture, the people and the natural beauty. These are just a part of what made me fall head over heels in love with this amazing country! I hope you will too.

  3. You Got It Girl!!!!….. One would not think but Croatia is very beautiful and I must add they have the BEST drinking water I have ever tasted (water snob here lol). Since I live here in Le Marche and going there is just a Ferry ride from Ancona Italy… I have a few friends that go to the dentist there, 1 because they are better, 2 because they are cheaper. My husband sometimes has has work there (Italian carpenter) because many people from my area have their summer homes there so I am lucky enough to visit. We also met up with old friends of mine (not seen in 15 yrs)on the Isle of Kirk at a “Natural Camp Site” personally I thought Natural meant vegan loving of nature. But reluctantly had to, bite the bullet and go nude. First time for everything. LOL…
    Your photos are incredible, the blue waters of Split, look like butter.

    I was there last year, but up in the northern parts, the Istria Peninsula. Next visit, I’ll head south to the parts you showed, and you should head north to Istria. Great wine and food, and lots of small hill towns.
