Turquoise waters, abundant historical sights, and delectable Mediterranean food and wine are just some of the reasons that an increasing number of people are visiting Croatia each year. Croatia was the first European country to establish commercial naturist resorts, so it should definitely be on your must-visit list if you live the naturist life. There’s a wide range of accommodation available in the country, but Croatia’s luxury hotels represent some of the finest in Europe.
