I fell in love with Croatia after visiting it for the first time in 2015… but from that moment onward, I kept coming back, spending more and more time in the country and its beautiful cities.

In 2018, I purchased Croatia Wise from its previous owner in order to combine my love for the country with the pleasure of sharing with the world all my findings about it, the joy of my travels there and useful information for those looking to find out more about Croatia and all its cities.
