Croatia has gained immense popularity over the last decade for many compelling reasons. Croatia is a geographically diverse country, discerned into three regions: Croatia-Slavonia (northern part), Istria (the largest Peninsula on the Adriatic sea), and Dalmatia (the southern coastal tip of the country). The Dalmatia region is the most visited among the three, as it is a famous summer holiday destination, thanks to its warm Mediterranean climate. Istria, blessed with the Mediterranean weather conditions as well, is a food destination and, thus, offers a unique chance to taste the traditional Croatian cuisine. These areas are full of tourists coming all around the world, especially, in July and August, which are the hottest and driest months (from 20°C/ 77-86°F to 30°C/80-90°F). According to many visitors, this is the best time to visit Croatia.
Contrarily to the other Balkan countries, where the Ottoman Empire's influence is still apparent today, in terms of culture and architecture, Croatia remained closer to the Roman element and the Western-European aspect. Quite interestingly, the number of Croats residing outside the country is almost equal to the ones actually living in Croatia.
