WITH GREAT LOCATIONS AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE, CROATIA IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S HOTTEST DESTINATIONS. THE ANCIENT WALLED CITY OF DUBROVNIK IS ONE OF ITS MOST IMPRESSIVE PLACES TO STOP BY.
With an impressive fireworks display that lit the sky in capital Zagreb, Croatia joined the European Union at midnight on July 1, 2013. Ascending to the ranks of the grouping was strong motivation to avoid future conflicts ‘ apart from the future economic benefits ‘ some technocrats said.

During the Croatian Independence War, sieges were laid and city walls defended by citizens; at the southern tip of the country, Dubrovnik was the prize everyone wanted.
