Top tips for finding the perfect Croatia hotel
Many of the main tourist attractions in Croatia can be found in its capital Zagreb, Croatia's most populous city, and Dubrovnik. Staying in either of these locations, you’ll get to see some of the most important landmarks in the country and experience authentic Croatian culture.
