Croatia Named Top 10 Best Country to Travel in 2024 by Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet, the renowned travel guidebook publisher, has declared Croatia as one of the top countries in the world to travel 2024, featuring the country’s exceptional charm, captivating landscapes, and rich cultural heritage

On its 50th anniversary, Lonely Planet has published a list of the 50 best global destinations across five categories, with Croatia securing its place in the category of the top 10 countries to visit next year.

“Lonely Planet’s choice confirms Croatia’s status as one of the highest qualities, and simultaneously most beautiful, global countries, whose global visibility is increasingly significant. Its natural heritage, rich culture, the friendliness of its people, as well as strong drivers of progress in various aspects of tourism, are the cornerstone of our offer, which is becoming more and more recognizable throughout the year. I believe that our numerous guests have already been convinced of the attractiveness of the Croatian tourist offer and the dedication of the entire Croatian tourism sector, while those in the future will be convinced,” emphasized Kristjan Staničić, director of Croatian National Tourism Board.

Lonely Planet described Croatia as a country with a beautiful sun-drenched coastline, numerous islands, challenging mountains, and historic cities. The description also highlighted Croatia’s entry into the Schengen area, the opening of the Pelješac Bridge, and other infrastructure projects.

Croatia is the only European country being recognized by the publication under that category. In addition to the list of the best countries, Lonely Planet has also published lists of the best sustainable destinations, the best city, the best region, and the destinations offering the best value for money.
