Adventure in Croatia is safe for travelers
As the hostile war activities ended in 1996, Croatia again became a very safe country for travelers. While a low crime rate makes it one of the safest places for visitors. Although a small country, Croatia has a rich variety of beautiful landscapes and preserved natural areas from mountains to plains, from rivers to the sea with a long and rich history.
Croatia is alive with well-preserved old towns, castles, palaces, monuments, and native architecture. Together with the tradition, folklore, art scenes, and music, Croatia is a unique and exotic place to discover. The industry is not big here and it has had little impact on the environment.
