Covering a surface area of 56,594 square kilometres, Croatia borders Slovenia and Hungary to the north, Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the east. The country has a coastline of 1,800 km (1,100 mi) as well as 1,246 islands. Along the coast is a multitude of beaches, coves, small bays and marinas. It has become an incredibly popular seaside tourist destination in Europe.

While there are mountains found in Croatia, it is the only country in southeastern Europe without a peak above 2,000 m (6561.68 ft). The Dinaric Alps host Dinara, the highest mountain in the country. It stands 1,831 m (6,007 ft) tall. The majority of Croatia is made up of lowlands, most of which don’t have elevations above 200 m (656.16 ft).

Located in the northwestern part of the country, along the Sava River, is Zagreb, the capital and largest city in Croatia. It is the only metropolitan area in Croatia with a population of over a million people.
