Croatia is a beautiful country situated roughly near the centre of Europe with a population of almost 4.3 million. As such, this makes it a great destination for holidaymakers, as well as acting as a great trading route to other countries. The country itself covers almost 22,000 square miles and enjoys a diverse Mediterranean climate as well as a coastal border that stretches almost its entire length. The Croatia we know today declared independence after its War of Independence against Serbia and Yugoslavia in 1991. Since that time, Croatia has gone from strength to strength politically and economically and, as mentioned earlier, is continuing to grow as a popular affordable tourist destination.
