I was born and raised in Croatia. Croatia is beautiful country with beautiful nature, great destination for holidays.
For a vacation you can really choose almost anything what you want.... hills, sea or plain.
True, we could work a little bit on the tourist offer, but the natural beauties successfully compensate for the negligence of individuals. Maybe future generations will fix something about that.
Enough about the popularity of Croatia says that some movie hits were shot in our country:
Game of Thrones - in Dubrovnik (2011, 2012, 2014)
Diana - Caught in Flight - in Opatija (2012)
Borgia - in Dubrovnik
