For many Central Europeans the frequently chosen destination is the nearby south. In the north of the Mediterranean Sea is a long side basin, the Adriatic Sea. The sea got its name from the Italian city of the same name, which is located in the province of Rovigo. Tourists have the choice between the Italian and Croatian Adriatic coast. The Adriatic Sea with its coasts and islands offers the guests sights and beautiful landscapes. It separates the Apennine Peninsula from the neighbouring Balkan Peninsula.
