Croatia - My Beautiful Homeland

Updated on September 14, 2010

Dedicated to My Beautiful Motherland - Croatia!

Have to say right at the beginning - I love my country! And if you have been to Croatia, you can understand my love for it's people, untouched nature and exquisite beauty! If not, take a look around and I'm sure you'll like what you'll discover about this little country with warm people, great music (just right for party), delicious food, clean and unspoiled natural resorts and clear blue sea!

This page combines all the best so far published and seen on Squidoo.com. Some of these lenses are mine, some of them are published by other Croats. And believe it or not, there are even some which are made by people who have visited and carried back to their country memories so good to inspire them to make a lenses dedicated to country which isn't theirs by birth but will ever remain in their hearts!

Just a caution: I plan to add many further resources in future, so stop by again... soon! :)

Presenting Croatia In All Her Beauty!

What you'll find here...

I have given a lots of thoughts how to present Croatia in the way I see it so that it becomes familiar to you, who landed on this page. So I'm not going to state a facts and figures about Croatia, I'll try to show you all the beauty of my country with many pictures and clips as I believe that pictures can send out much stronger message. In between I'll try to add many links for further reading for all of you who are interested to find out more, but also few interesting 'did you know' facts that you might not known!

Croatia - Land of Islands

1185 Islands by Adriatic Coast

Croatia is truly a land of islands because it has 1185 of them and each one is different, exceptional and with its own story. Islands, islets and cliffs are located in front of 1777 kilometers of the Adriatic coast.

People often can't determine the color of the Adriatic sea. Sometimes it's dark blue, sometimes greenish-blue. The fact is that the sea, depending on the time of day and the angle of the sun's rays overflows into a thousands nuances. However, it is always beautiful and unique.

Out of the 1185 islands and cliffs, one will surely be your best travel choice. Come and choose it!

Come! I'm inviting you! And I'm sure you'll have great time!

      Me in oppressive heatwave inflicted Oz (loathe high humidity) with a small pocket, yes I'm from the poorer side... Got Croatian music, and a packet of Croatian 'KRAS' waffer biscuits...Yummm! :) Local biscuits here are pumped full of sugar and chemicals, that made me really feel sick...Never those 'KRAS' biscuits, yummmm!....:)

      Incidentally one of my parents comes from Zagreb, but also spoke fluent Russian. One has noticed that I have Eastern European blood stirring within me, though I dont speak a word of Croatian or Russian, but I'm heavily drawn to the music....I humbly play harmonica...:)

      My daughter has just come back from there and she says it is beautiful beyond any telling of it. Was very impressed. As a father I trust she stayed away from some of those naughty beaches. Blessed by an Angel.

      It certainly looks a beautiful country - you seem to have it all in Croatia: mountains, national parks, and all those islands along the Adriatic coast. I hope to visit one of these days.
