This week, editorial director Kelly Regan and author Karen Olsen take us on a virtual tour of Croatia.

What makes Croatia special, beyond the spirit of the people, is the boundless natural beauty, diversity of landscape and the rich history it possesses. Join us for our Croatia podcast and learn about how to get there, the best times to go, how to find the most beautiful beaches on the Adriatic, and where to eat your own freshly caught fish!
