The European Parliament has carried out seawater pollution testing on popular beaches across Europe.
A few days ago the EU Parliament posted a video on its Twitter profile advising people where to swim this summer. One of the hot spots for tourists is a beautiful beach Podrace on the Makarska Riviera in Croatia.
In order to ensure EU citizens a healthy and safe environment, the European Parliament conducts seawater testing on many beaches throughout Europe. Around 21,000 European bathing sites are tested regularly for pollution.
According to the EU Parliament, more and more sites pass tough EU bathing water rules every year. Almost 96 percent of them are fine for swimming, whilst 85 percent of them are rated excellent. The Croatian beach has found its place in the top three swimming locations and has taken the victory in the category of sea beaches.
