Croatia is a middle european Adriatic country, which lies between Slovenia of the west, Hungary on the north, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina on the east, while the Adriatic Sea divides it from its neighbour Italy. The convenient geographical position, as well as the good traffic connections make it easy to reach its numerous destinations in short distances.

 

Among its obvious geographical appeal, Croatia has been a major tourist attraction due to its starring role in the HBO series Game of Thrones, its well preserved first-century Roman amphitheatres and its crystal clear oceans and picturesque pebbled beaches.
