National Geographic Magazine declared Croatia "the most
beautiful country in the world" in 2005, and no wonder: Its
glorious coastline runs for more than 1700 km from the north's
gorgeous, heart-shaped Istrian peninsula (dubbed by some as "The
New Tuscany" - yes, it's that pretty!); down to the ancient,
red-roofed wonders of Split and Dubrovnik in the south - each
boasting its own World Heritage Site.
