Croatia 'one to watch'

Croatia 'one to watch'
25 Jun 2013

Croatia has been named the holiday destination to watch out for this summer, with currency sales up 55% in the first five months of this year. 

And Post Office Travel Money says this trend is 'accelerating', with kuna sales rising 61% in May compared with the same month last year. The kuna is now in 6th place on Post Office's best-seller list - its highest ever position. 

'Croatia really seems to be Europe's in-vogue destination,' commented Andrew Brown of Post Office Travel Money. 

'Croatia has been growing steadily in popularity over the past five years but the latest surge suggests the country is about to become even more popular.'

Top places to visit in Croatia include the coastal city of Dubrovnik, which is known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. 

Among Dubrovnik's attractions are the beautiful buildings in the old part of town. It is recognised by Unesco as 'a remarkably well-preserved example of a late-medieval walled city'.ADNFCR-408-ID-801603818-ADNFCR
