''Welcome to the island of love. A few kilometres from Zadar, the Galesnjak Island, also known as Cupid Island is the only island in the world with a heart shape. That shape was discovered by a cartographer in the late 19th century. The island is very small within an area of 130 square metres. It does not house any hotel or restaurant.'', EBD describes the small Croatian island.

''There is a reason why the two or three weeks you are going to spend on the Adriatic are called holidays. Rest and relaxation on the beach or in other words swimming and sunbathing, are the favourite activities of most tourists on summer vacation. Luckily, Omiš offers almost endless possibilities in this aspect, too. From big sandy beaches to small secluded pebble coves, from long shallows ideal for kids to the deep big blue opening up before you just metres from the shore – Omiš truly has something to offer to everyone'', writes European Best Destinations about a small Croatian town near Split.

The popular European organization also describes one of the most beautiful Croatian national parks, ''The Plitvice Lakes National Park is ranked at the top of the most beautiful parks in Europe. These 16 large lakes, connected by nearly 100 waterfalls, are dazzlingly blue. Here, nature reigns. It offers you the most beautiful shows in this park that has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage for more than 35 years. You will fall in love with this incredible place''.
