About Croatia  
Welcome to Croatia, a land of diversity. It is a land full of contrasts whose beauties have been celebrated since ancient times: from the inland, where hills are adorned with vineyards, castles, lakes and waterfalls, to the steep Dalmatian coast, where crystal-clear water and more than a thousand islands stay against the background of mountains. It is a land where the colors of the sunny and warm Mediterranean happily blend with the tranquility and freshness of mountains and the gentle sway of the golden plains of Pannonia.  

Croatia is a country with a fourteen century-long history, a rich cultural heritage and spectacular natural beauties. It is one of the ecologically best preserved parts of Europe. The country includes seven UNESCO World Heritage sites and eight national parks. Croatia is also the birthplace of a number of historical figures. Included among the notable people are three Nobel Prize winners and numerous artists and inventors.
  National Parks of Croatia
Although a small country, Croatia has eight national parks. With Risnjak, Paklenica, the Plitvice Lakes and Northern Velebit in the mountainous area, and with the Kornati Archipelago, the island of Mljet, the Brijuni Archipelago and the Krka waterfalls in the coastal area, Croatia is indeed a jewel of the primeval beauty of nature. A rare European country with so many national parks in so small area!
     
  World Heritage Sites in Croatia
Croatian culture is the result of a fourteen century-long history which has seen the development of many cities and monuments, but there are also important remnants of the earlier periods still preserved, many of which today, as zero category monuments, are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The UNESCO has marked seven places in Croatia as World Heritage.
     
  Notable people from Croatia  
The culture of Croatia has roots in a long history. Croatia is the birthplace of a number of historical figures whose great deeds have forever etched the name of Croatia in large letters on the map of the world. Some of the people Croats take special pride in include: explorer Marco Polo, inventor of parachutes Faust Vrančić, physicist, astronomer, mathematician and philosopher Roger Joseph Boscovich (Ruđer Bošković), sculptor Ivan Meštrović, inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla, etc…

Did you know that one of the world's greatest inventors, Nikola Tesla, was born in 1856 in the small village of Smiljan in Croatia?
