What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Adriatic Sea visits, enjoying a view of Sljeme mountain from our neighborhood, experiencing 4 seasons every year. Beautiful European spring flowers. - Apr 8, 2016
The best part of living in Croatia was traveling around the county. In previous assignments, I felt like I had pretty much been everywhere in the country that I wanted to go by the time my tour was about half over. Not so in Croatia where my list of places to go kept getting longer right up until I left. Don't miss the islands, and also plan to spend some time in the continental and mountainous parts of the country, which are spectacular in their own rights. - Aug 5, 2014
Definitely the best part is the coast of Croatia. From Zagreb it is around 90 minutes to the nearest point and the Adriatic coast is awesome - clear, clean water. Just drive anywhere to the coast (it is all public) and jump in the water. Then climb out, get a pizza, and jump back in. Well, that's what I like to do. Then there are the old cities like; Split, Rovinj, Dubrovnik and Pula, just to name a few that are fascinating places to see and then go jump in the Adriatic! - Jun 16, 2014
This should give you some insight about our tour... Our highlights of being posted in Croatia have been traveling down to the coast, and also visiting the neighboring countries. So if it's not a long weekend out of town, don't expect a good time from the city of Zagreb. There are been a few fun festivals and celebrations but our true highlights have come from getting OUT of Zagreb. - Feb 18, 2014
The Croatian Coast, it's really the only thing that this place is worth coming for. - Dec 16, 2011
My favorite times have been just in the city at night. The main square, Trg Bana Jelacic, is a great "hang out" spot. - Oct 16, 2010
