Have any of you ever been to Croatia? No? You should. If you love diversity, Croatia is the place for you. Beautifull sea, more than 1200 islands, clean rivers, lots of mountains, plains, national parks and many other great things to enjoy. If anyone has been to Croatia, I'd love to hear your comment please. Thank you. =)

I have not been there, but from the pictures that I have seen of the country, it looks like a very beautiful place. I must admit to being surprised a few years ago when I learned how nice the scenery was there, as my initial views of the country over the years were of it being a war torn country with not much to offer. If I ever get over to Europe, which hopefully one day I will, then I will check it out. I do know of some people here in Australia who have Croatian heritage.

Well, I can recomend lots of parts of Croatia, it all depends what you like. If you are an outdoor type of person, that likes nature, hiking, rafting or any other kind of adrenaline tourism, I would recomend part of croatia called lika, it is filled with numerous rivers, creeks, mountains, caves, lakes, anything a outdoor person might want. If you love the beach I would recomend visiting our islands, whichever you choose, you can't go wrong(Kornati is a real pearl) or settling in on of the towns on the coast. If you like culture tourism, I recomend visiting Dubrovnik, a world famous town(used to be a town-state till 17 century)that has kept it's old centre just as it was centuries ago. Also the sea and nature there is beautiful. Also if you like ski tourism, Gorski-kotar is a good place to visit, a special place, lots of mountains and snow, and it's just 40 minute drive to get to the sea and the beaches. Well, that's the short story on it, if you are interested in more info, just leave a comment, I'd be happy to answer you. =)

Language is a bit tricky, similar to most of the Slavic languages, maybe Russian,or Polish.

Yes, I have been to Croatia in 2003. I would love to go there again in the future. I got a bus all the way down to Dubrovnik. I loved that beautiful looking city. I enjoyed visiting the old town and the woody looking island. After hopping down to Montenegro I went on a boat to Mljet Island. I adored the national park with the lake. It was amazing when I went up to Trogir. I stayed at a campsite by the beach. I enjoyed looking around the splendid old town. I wish I had gone to Plivice Lakes but I ran out of time. Finally I went up to Slovenia.

i never visit croatia. maybe because it`s too long from my country (Indonesia). but croatia is well known because part of Yugoslavia and because of soccer. most of football lovers from my country know dario simic, alan boksic, davor suker etc. they are great football players.
