From the shores of the South Dalmatian islands of the Adriatic Sea to the top of Dinara, the highest peak in the country, through swamps filled with wildlife in Posavina, or the Mediterranean richness of the forests of Mljet, Croatia’s natural beauty never ends.Croatia presents one of the ecologically best-preserved parts of Europe with 10% of its territory having a protected status (8 National Parks and 11 Nature Parks). Its sea is the purest in Europe according to the European Commission.
Its great climate formed a unique fauna, with more than 350 bird species, wild horses, deer, brown bears or dolphins, and flora with more than 5500 different species.
