9 Places in Croatia Every Visitor Must See ...

Know any places in Croatia? This small country formed after the breakup of Yugoslavia is just made for a great holiday. Small by size, but great in natural diversity, rich historical and cultural heritage and, above all, in hospitality of local people. Many of the most attractive places in Croatia are found along the extremely indented coastline which also features over a thousand islands, islets and reefs. Scenic mountain areas, fertile lowlands and unspoiled nature of national parks are among the other wonderful sights of Croatia. Here's my pick of 9 Places in Croatia Every Visitor Must See:

1. Hvar

Situated on the picturesque island of the same name, the ancient city of Hvar is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Croatian coast. Located at the foot of a verdant hill and surrounded by the sea with numerous islets scattered over the horizon, Hvar amazes with its natural beauties. The old Hvar Citadel dominates the hill above the town and represents one of the highly recommended things to see in Croatia. The old city's core will charm you with its Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Highlights include Cathedral of St. Stephen, the Franciscan Monastery and the famous Hvar theatre built in 1612, among the oldest in Europe.
