The beauty of Croatia has to be seen to be believed. Here are 17 reasons why you need to add Croatia to your travel wish list RN.

1. The glittering turquoise waters

Immersing yourself into the crystal-clear Croatian water is other-worldly and one of those experiences you can’t quite believe is real.

2. The beaches are something special
With the sound of rippling waves acting as your perfect holiday soundtrack, the white sandy beaches are the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

3. It’s beautiful on the inside too
Venturing inland reveals Croatia’s stunning Unesco-protected national parks.

4. You don’t have to choose between a relaxing holiday and an action-packed adventure

From stand-up paddle boarding to zip-wires there’s something to suit everyone’s inner adventurer, before relaxing on the boat reminiscing over the day’s escapades.

5. The climate
As one of the sunniest places in Europe, Croatia experiences over twelve hours of glorious sunshine daily during the summer!

6. It had a starring role in Game of Thrones
And who doesn’t want to explore King’s Landing, Meereen or the Red Keep’s gardens?

7. The rich history
