Croatia

Kotor Bay

Croatia is a south-central European country with an extensive coastline down the Adriatic Sea. It borders Hungary in the north, and Montenegro to the south. The Croats settled in early 7th century, forming two principalities, Dalmatia and Pannonia. In 1102, Croatia entered into a union with the Kingdom of Hungary (the Dalmatian coast was controlled by Venice until the 18th century). The region became a part of the Habsburg Empire in 1527, and in 1918 became a part of the Kingdom of SHS, later renamed Yugoslavia. In 1991 Croatia proclaimed independence by holding its first democratic elections. The country includes seven World Heritage sites and eight national parks. Its capital is Zagreb. Tourism in Croatia is well-developed, with most of the traffic going to the well-preserved coastal Renaissance towns. Several companies run flotillas of yachts along different stretches of the coastline, which is also popular with divers. In the interior of the country highlights include the capital Zagreb, the Baroque capital VaraĹždin, and a plethora of medieval castles.
