Here are some amazing reasons why you should visit Croatia in 2022.
No guide to Croatia would be complete without talking about the coastline. You can enjoy some of the best bareboat charters in Croatia and see some stunning coastlines by boat, surf, or foot.

One thing that Croatia is well known for is its amazing waterfalls and nature trails. Croatia has some of the most mystical and magical waterfall trials in Europe so if you love to be out in nature this is a must during your trip.

If you are an outdoorsy person this is somewhere you absolutely have to go.
One of the best things about Croatia is the rich history it has to offer. If you are a history buff and you love to learn about how our world got the way it is, Croatia is a veritable goldmine of information and ruins. Croatia was influenced heavily by the Romans and as such it has many medieval ruins and castles within its borders that teach us a lot about this country and Europe as a whole. Explore many UNESCO World Heritage Sites during your stay and enjoy the true majesty of this place.
Croatia has over 1,200 islands on its coastline and this means you have a whole new world to explore when you come to visit. You can head straight to the most famous islands such as Plavnik, Susac, or Kornati to enjoy the peace and the wildlife, or head further afield to some of the tiniest islands that are really only the size of rocks. Losinj is a great choice if you want to do some dolphin spotting – you can also enjoy jet skiing from island to island to make the most of this place.
Croatia is known for having some amazing festivals in the summer, and if you are someone who loves music – Croatia should be somewhere on your worldwide bucket list.
