About the destination

Known for its rich cultural heritage, Croatia is an increasingly touristy country with medieval villages, beaches, national parks, not to mention large tourist cities and thousands of small islands. Having Austro-Hungarian and Venetian influences and retaining a heritage of Slavic and Roman peoples, Croatia has many medieval villages built by Slavs. The territory of Croatia was invaded by Yugoslavia several times, including after World War II. In early 1992, Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia. The country was divided into six tourist regions: Istria, Kvarner, Dalmatia, Central Croatia, Slavonia and Zagreb. Finally, Croatia has several sites that are listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.


The official currency of Croatia is the Croatian kuna (HRK). However, if you plan to use your cards at your destination, be sure to inform your financial institution of the dates of your stay in Croatia.
