Croatia did loose the World Cup but they fought hard to represent their country and remind the world who they are. Which makes me want to remind you how beautiful Croatia is and why Croatia is one of 2018 hot spots.
Croatia has a rich history that involves Romans, Venetians and Germans. Most recently is the violent separation from Yugoslavia a decade and a half ago. Despite the war, Croatians are a relaxed group that are welcoming to travelers. Their miles of seafront, over a thousand islands, mountains and waterfalls remind people of the beauty despite the devastation.
