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 known across the globe for its beauty, culture, and picturesque island landscapes. Located just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, Croatia is often referred to as Europe’s largest natural park, boasting 1,246 islands, 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 that rival Tuscany.
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. We’ll get involved with this movement by volunteering with The Blue World Institute – the leading Adriatic bottlenose dolphin conservation organization in Europe.
