Croatia is placed among the ranks of Scotland, England, Vietnam and New Zealand.
Rough Guides is well known and respected internationally for its travel guides, with travel titles covering more than 200 destinations worldwide, the Penguin Books organisation finds itself among the top of the top when it comes to all things travel related.
Croatia often receives international praise from some of the best known and highly respected travel portals, websites and publications all over the world, and since the launch of Game of Thrones and various other hit TV and film productions, the amount of recognition Croatia, particularly Dalmatia and the coast receives as a top tourist destination has only increased. It seems that Rough Guides is just one in a long line of world renowned reference publishers to shine the international spotlight on the country as it lists the Republic of Croatia among the top twenty most beautiful countries on earth.
Alongside other European beauties like England, Wales, Scotland, Slovenia, Switzerland, Norway and Italy, as well as countries much further afield like Indonesia, the United States, Peru and New Zealand, Croatia finds itself at number 19 on Rough Guides’ extensive list of the most beautiful countries, as voted by readers.
With Hvar as its photo backdrop, Rough Guides writes ”Croatia attracts tourists from all over the world thanks to its historic cities such as Dubrovnik and Split, and – as @okemp1989 (Twitter user) put it on Twitter – ”that coastline” which stretches for almost 2000km.”
