Croatia

Croatia It's easy for the former Yugoslav states to be lumped together, so Croatia is overlooked and underrated. The country has a lot to offer with its food, weather, hospitality and sightseeing. As a tourist destination, it's especially desirable, because it's inexpensive when compared with neighboring countries. The variety of the landscapes, from inland to the coast, is great. I cannot emphasize enough how beautiful the Croatian women are. Info: www.croatia.com -- Eric Turner, Los Angeles
