The Place and The People
With a World Cup appearance in 2018, the picturesque Game of Thrones royal city, and a stunning natural coastline, Croatia is quickly becoming well-known across the globe for its beauty, culture, and friendly locals. Located just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, Croatia is a place often referred to as Europe’s largest natural park boasting 1,246 islands and inlets for sailing, unforgettable views, and a rich array of marine wildlife. On land, almost 10% of Croatia is made up of nature parks and reserves, with wonderful Gothic and Renaissance buildings set amongst rolling hills.
While the beauty of the country never fails, Croatia is also home to important nonprofit organizations, research centers, and more, all playing a pivotal role in keeping Croatia pristine. Volunteer with The Blue World Institute alongside conservationists making an impact on the wildlife of the area – with plenty of dolphin viewing along the way!
