Primorje-Gorski Kotar County

Historic Sites Sightseeing Beaches
Commonly called "Croatian Switzerland" and "the green lungs of Croatia," Primorje-Gorski Kotar County boasts nature reserves and elite summer resorts. The mountain slopes rise above the coastal towns, shielding them from the scorching Mediterranean heat. The location, grand spa hotels, and mild climate attract a chiefly mature crowd. From the rocky peaks, which are home to rare flora species such as edelweiss and hairy alpine rose, you can see over the whole of Istria all the way to the Julian Alps. The streets of coastal towns are lined with lovely belle époque villas that remain from the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When using our Croatia tour planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
