After a long period of political turmoil and isolation, Croatia has started to garner massive popularity which is no surprise considering the miles of sunny beaches, dramatic nature, and ancient monuments that dot the Dalmatian coast. The country has amazing natural beauty, interesting history, and a relaxed lifestyle where excellent food and wine are the norm, but what separates Croatia from other great coastal holiday destinations is its affordability. You get much more for your money that you’d expect while enjoying world-class services, accommodation, and attractions. Here are the best hotels in Croatia:
