Central Croatia

You must have read all about our famous division of Croatia 🙂
(just between us; you are not the only one who likes it!) It’s a bit different than the usual one, but it’s user-friendly, they say!
I’m glad you did, and I’m glad you’re here now.

Central Croatia is divided into 5 parts around the main cities; Karlovac, Sisak, Koprivnica, Bjelovar and Podravina (which is the most eastern part of Central Croatia, according to our division)

I sincerely hope you’ll find what you’ll looking for.
If not – use the search navigator or just blame it on me.
