Croatia boasts some of the most outstanding beaches of the Adriatic Sea. From pretty fishing ports to monasteries, magnificent churches and ancient sites, this small country of five million people (a mix of Croats, Serbs, Slavs, Hungarians and Slovenes) offers a wealth of places to see. HI hostels here are well located to take in the medieval glories of the capital, Zagreb or the fine, walled town of Dubrovnik. The hostels are also perfect for visiting the sun-drenched shores of the Istrian Peninsula, the coast of central Dalmatia and the thriving island of Krk, where folk traditions are very much alive. In Croatia, you can sail or sea-kayak around unspoilt islands or dive to shipwrecks and caves. The beautiful landscape is perfect for hiking over wooded mountains. You can also visit some of Europe's finest Roman ruins and explore the streets of medieval towns. Formerly part of Yugoslavia, the Republic of Croatia is now an independent nation full of charm and beauty.
