The Croatian coastline is 5,835 km long, of which the mainland is 1,777 km long and the coastal zone encircling 1,185 islands and islets extends to the length of 4,058 km. Croatia has about 4.5 million inhabitants, with almost one million people living in its capital Zagreb. The Adriatic coast has a typical Mediterranean climate and with an average of 2,600 hours of sun is one of the sunniest coasts of the Mediterranean.
Croatia is a country, which on a relatively small area offers great natural and cultural diversities. There are few such small areas in the world that have as many as eight national parks and a large number of protected nature parks, as well as crystal clear sea. This is the European meeting point of the East and West, the Central-European and Mediterranean mentality, whereas the extraordinary wealth of cultural heritage testifies to its long and eventful history.
Cultures and civilizations that followed in succession over the centuries left their indelible traces. Many of them are heritage monuments, inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage Site List: Diocletian's Palace in Split, Basilica of Euphrasius in Poreč, Romanesque town of Trogir, Old Town of Dubrovnik, Šibenik's Cathedral - the work of Juraj Dalmatinac… There are magnificent ancient monuments and complexes from Pula, to Zadar all the way to Split, and much more to see on almost every inch of the land where traces of man's inspiration and ingenuity will surely take your breath away.
Croatia is a country of great history and even greater people: Herman Dalmatin, medieval philosopher and natural scientist of the Western European circle, a native of Istria; Marco Polo, world-famous explorer, a native of Korčula; Matija Vlačića Ilirik (Matthias Flacius Illyricus), Protestant writer, Reformation follower and close collaborator of Martina Luther, a native of Labin; Julije Klović (Iulius Clovius Croata), one of the most famous Renaissance miniaturists, known as the "Croatian Michelangelo", a native of Vinodol; Ruđer Bošković from Dubrovnik, one of the greatest European physicists, mathematicians and astronomers of his time; Nikola Tesla, one of the world's greatest inventors, a native of Lika. Croatia is the homeland of numerous inventions, well known all over the world - tie (cravata Croata), torpedo, fountain pen and power block.
To confirm the famous saying: "A sound mind in a sound body", this small Mediterranean and Central European country is the homeland of top athletes and Olympic medal winners: world famous boxing champion Mate Parlov, tennis players Goran Ivanišević, Goran Prpić, Mario Ančić and Ivan Ljubičić, the golden national handball team and one of the world's greatest handball players Ivano Balić, national water polo and basketball teams, rowing champions Siniša and Nikola Skelin, swimming champion Duje Draganja, terrific athlete Blanka Vlašić, skiing queen Janica Kostelić and her brother Ivica Kostelić, Croatian national football team and one of the world's greatest football players Davor Šuker, are just some of the top names in the recent sports history of Croatia.
