About Croatia

The Croatian national territory totals 56.594 km2 with 31.479 km2 of coastal waters for sailing, swimming, and diving.

Croatia occupies the largest area of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, which penetrates deep into the European continent as a part of the Mediterranean Sea. The narrow Dinara Mountain Range separates the country’s Mediterranean region from its central European continental section, which spans from the eastern edges of the Alps in the northwest to the shores of the Danube in the East, encompassing the southern part of the fertile Pannonian lowlands.

And if the beauty of such landscapes weren’t enough, here’s a refreshing piece of news: tap water is drinkable across all of Croatia.
