Work and travel in Croatia: International Experience Canada
What Croatia offers
Croatia is shaped like a horseshoe with wide plains, mountainous regions and a long indented sunny coastline with over a thousand islands. Almost ten percent of the country is protected within eleven nature parks, eight national parks and two strict nature reserves. There are also eight United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites in Croatia.
There are many ways to experience the magic of Croatia. Roam the centuries-old cobbled streets, discovering UNESCO sites as you go. Spend some time by the beautiful turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea as you sail the many Islands of Croatia or hike, cycle or raft along one of the eight stunning national parks.
Croatia offers a varied range of food, largely because the country straddles two distinctive culinary regions, the seafood-dominated food of the Mediterranean and the schnitzel-and-strudel style of Central Europe.
