Croatia is a country of immense history, culture, and geographic beauty. While Croatia is small in land size, there is plenty to see, from historic urban areas to gorgeous landscapes. Below are my ten favorite photos from my visit to Croatia. I spent most of my time in Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Split, and Dubrovnik, so my pictures all come from those locations. I hope you enjoy “Buzzin’ Around Croatia in 10 photos.”
