If you plan on visiting Croatia, you most likely plan to visit Dalmatia. Dalmatia is an Adriatic region in Croatia spreading from Zadar to the north to Peljesac peninsula in the south, including many lovely islands like Brac, Hvar, Vis, etc.
The most visited region in Croatia, Istria is a heart-shaped peninsula located in the northern Adriatic.
Istria is rolling hills, medieval hilltop towns, historical coastal towns, rocky coast, breathtaking views, tasty food, excellent local wines, and olive groves. Many visitors compared it with Tuscany, and sometimes call it “Tuscany with colors”.
Croatia is blessed to be a land of natural riches. Not only does it boast of possessing almost 2000 kilometers of rocky, indented shore but also of having more than a thousand islands being blanketed with natural vegetation.
Konavle region is a rural region south-east of Dubrovnik with Cavtat as its municipality center. It is southern most part of Croatia. It is a small region with a distinct character: its rocky coast on the South, its scrub covered mountain to the North and its green valley in between.
Opatija is a seaside resort town on the east coast of Istria. Back in the 19th century, Opatija has been a fashionable holiday resort for the international upper class. Today it is definitely not the holiday destination it used to be. In my opinion it is definitely not worth visiting in summer.
