Despite being a small country with a population of only 4.5 million, Croatia (capital: Zagreb) hosted more than 10 million visitors last year and has been spoiling tourists with its beautiful landscapes and storybook towns for several decades. Croatia was chosen as destination of the year by several trade magazines and it´s no surprise when you see what´s on offer. The country has several distinct geographic regions which include a sunny coastline, a mountainous interior and an impressive archipelago of islands. Throw in gorgeous seaside cities, seven UNESCO world heritage sites, and an impressive national parks system, and you´ve got the makings of a wonderful holiday. Swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic, hiking in the Paklenica National Park or surveying the Renaissance ruins in Dubrovnik are all done in a day in Croatia. So fly with Austrian Airlines to Croatia and be amazed by this spectacular destination!
