I had the chance to see Croatia this summer. It was ahot summer there, I could barely live with it.
Croatia has more than 1000 islands and very green-blue transparent water. You can see the fishes and the way the sun is reflected in the clear waters.
But there is a BUT. I found the Dalmatian coast very very touristic, cities like Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik are so populated by tourists, most of the time I feel tired of not having enough space to discover the beauties of these locations as I would wish so.
The people are very touristic orrientated, but I understand their situation. As one woman told me, they live and can subsist only because of tourism.
The thing is that the hotels are so expensive in Croatia that the only way you can accept is to stay over night in someone´s house. Most of the people rent rooms in their houses, which is ok, as the price is convenient for everybody. People seem nice, they want to please their guests, and the young ones speak English, and older people are speaking Italian and German.
I liked Split very much, the Isle of Krk, Krka National Park, Dubrovnik, Zadar and many more.
