Since the end of the 19th century and the evolution of the industry, nature around the world took the role of the most obvious victim there can be. Forests, the animal world and especially water have strongly decreased in their quantity and quality, unfortunately.
As a result of these global processes, many countries to this day have their natural sources of water significantly lowered, and the quality is so bad that people can’t drink their tap water since it can do horrible things to their health.
In the world of struggling with water reserves, purifying what was left, Croatia is holding the spot in the very elite club of countries with very big amounts of sources of clean water that is more than safe to drink!
According to research conducted by UNESCO, Croatia holds a high 5th place in Europe in the purity of water sources that are used to drink and in household and 42nd in the ranking of the whole world (take in consideration that there are almost 200 countries in the world!)
But it’s not only tapping water that makes Croatia proud. As you all know, the Croatian seaside looks just magical and amazing as you can only imagine in case you haven’t visited the Croatian coast (and we urge you to do it!).
The secret is not only about beautiful beaches and the air that cures any type of respiratory problems, it’s also about how clean the seawater is along the Croatian coast. In annual researches conducted by the European Union, over 900 beaches were put on analysis and the results spoke for themselves – 97% of Croatian seawater is extremely clean and more than just safe to enjoy.
And the reserves of water? No worry here, Croatia has unimaginable amounts of clean water deep underground, mostly around Dalmatian cities such as Solin and Trogir and we’ve used around only 4,5% of it.
We told you, there is a reason why many refer to Croatia as a mini heaven on Earth!
