Increasingly popular, Croatia is a charming combination of Slavic and Mediterranean cultures. The country has become famous for its beautiful cities full of history such as the capital city Zagreb with its impressive cultural riches, the ancient Roman city of Split located on the Dalmatian coast, Trogir with its Renaissance architecture and the so-called "pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik. The latter is particularly attractive to those looking for sophisticated apartments in the city centre as well as for luxury villas overlooking the sea. Aside from these major cities, Croatia is also known for its numerous islands, particularly Hvar which is frequented by the international jet set thanks to its prestigious properties and the stunning natural scenery. Another prime location is Opatija, often called the "Monte Carlo of Croatia" due to its long association with the upper-classes, where it is hard to resist the allure of the splendid luxury villas located along the coast. Aside from the culture and beach resorts, residents of Croatia also have access to a number of natural parks, such as Plit, a true paradise for nature lovers.
