Description

Sea, mountains, and plains: these are breathtaking landscapes. Croatia offers an abundance of places of interest both for those seeking to explore the outdoors and those wanting to experience history and art. In addition to enjoying beautiful islands, great swathes of coastline and transparent waters ranging from the deepest blue to turquoise and to pale green, visitors can also explore architectural and artistic treasures, discovering the rich past that reflects the roles and influence of the many cultures that shaped modern Croatia. Nature lovers will delight in the mountains that rise close to the coast, their rocky outer ridges giving way to inner valleys of verdant woods and unexpected streams. The vast plains and the green hills of the north tell of local traditions and customs wed to the land and the change of seasons. Not-to-be-missed monuments and museums abound. Croatia is all of this and more. But above all, it is a country in which every region and every village has a checked history, all rewarding the visitor with their atmosphere of bygone times combinations of sights and sounds, colours, and scents that linger in air.
It is in full colour throughout; a new title in the popular "Countries of the World" series; it provides a fascinating insight into this beautiful country.
