The country has a coastline of 1,800 km (1,100 mi) as well as 1,246 islands. Along the coast are 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 south eastern Europe without a peak above 2,000 m (6561.68 ft). The Dinaric Alps host Dinara, the highest mountain in the country. It stands at 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).
