Croatia's holiday credentials praised by Teletext

Described by the group as the 'new Tuscany' for British holidaymakers, Croatia, it says, has become a more and more popular destination with this section of the public in recent times, which is reflected by the fact that the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) will be holding their biggest conference of 2013 there in October.

This announcement, the article speculated, is a clear indication that tourism chiefs in the UK are now looking to further promote Croatia's many strong points with those interested in enjoying a first class overseas trip soon.

Teletext outlined some of the reasons why it is no surprise that Croatia is now in such demand as a getaway option, citing its 'historic sights, hilltop villages and beautiful countryside' as particular highlights.
