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.
