Destinations, All places in Croatia

One of Mediterranean's hidden gems, Croatia with more than 1000 islands is a sailor's paradise. Its southern coasts are especially interesting featuring the ancient Greek port of Trogir or the beautiful city of Split. The Dalmatian Coast boasts the barren and isolated Kornati archipelago and other islands with centuries of history, such as Korcula, Hvar or Brac, with the 'Golden Horn' beach that many consider to be the most beautiful in the whole country. For those who prefer peace and quiet, there are plenty of other beaches without anything that might spoil the view, hidden coves, and rocky platforms.
