Croatia has become an increasingly popular tourist hotspot over the last few years - a trend which looks set to continue emphatically this summer. The eastern European country was recently named the holiday destination to watch out for in the coming months, with currency sales up 55% in the first five months of 2013. Kuna sales jumped 61% year-on-year in May, meaning it is currently 6th on the 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. “It 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.”

Value for money is one of the reasons why so many holidaymakers are choosing Croatia, particularly those flying from UK airports such as Heathrow and Stansted. Recent research into resort costs suggests that a holiday in the country offers travellers more bang for their buck compared to many other European destinations. The coastal city of Dubrovnik, which is known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, is one of the top places to visit in Croatia. Boasting 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’.
