Croatia in the Far East
Croatia is becoming a new European destination for Korean and other Asian visitors, offering what France and other strong tourism countries cannot offer, states The Korea Times, which published an interview with the President of the Tourist Board of Zagreb, Ms. Amelija Tomašević. She stated how a lot of Koreans are acquainted with many European destinations and how the time has come for them to turn to Croatia which is different from the rest by its rich culture, history and is above all, the home of well preserved and untouched nature.

Along with this, Korean tourists do not require a visa for Croatia and the airport in Zagreb is an ideal European landing ground because of its location, offering many flights from the Capital of Croatia to other European destinations.

Amelija Tomašević reported that the Tourist Board of Zagreb has recently published a brochure in Korean and that it is ready to meet all the required needs of Korean tourists. She announced that she will engage with the government on getting work permits for Koreans in Croatia, to enable them to work as tour guides for Korean tourists visiting Croatia because there are almost no Croats who speak Korean.

The author of the article, Lee Hyo-sik, introduced readers to basic information and stated that Zagreb is the Capital of Croatia, which became an independent state in 1991 after the fall of Yugoslavia. It says that Croatia is located in southeast Europe between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia and the Adriatic Sea, which it shares with Italy. He points out that Croatia is famous for numerous national parks, and that Croatian authorities give special protection to ten nature parks and two natural reserves, while around ten percent of the territory is under special protection by strict laws.

The author also states that Croatia has a diverse climate. In the north and east it is continental, along the coast it is Mediterranean and in the south and central area the climate is half-mountain and mountain.
