For a tiny country with a population of 4.5 million people and only about 25 years of history as an independent participant on the world sports scene, Croatia produces an extraordinary amount of world class athletes in a wide variety of sports. German sports magazine Bild recently declared it the best sports country in the world.

Most will remember the Croatian soccer team's dramatic rise to winning the silver at the recent World Cup and Luka Modric winning the Golden Ball for the best player in the world.

But there are also many other names any sports fan will recognize - brother and sister Janica and Ivica Kostelic who have won almost every medal available in skiing, Goran Ivanisevic who won the Wimbledon on a "wild card" entry, Ivano Balic and his "World Player of the Year" award two different times. American NBA will never forget Drazen Petrovic, Toni Kukoc and Dino Rada, who opened the NBE doors for a continuous stream of new generations after them. Croatia came back with 10 medals from the last summer Olympic Games in Brazil. It continuously ranks in the top of the world water polo and handball leagues. The list of extraordinary achievements is quite long and reaches across a wide variety of sports.

What is it about this small country that produces such extraordinary athletes at such a high rate? Come and find out! Why not spice up your next incentive program in Croatia with a "friendly game" of soccer, hockey, handball or water polo with a local team?
Or race in a triathlon by the Adriatic Sea? Your team can participate in an organized local sporting event, or a private one can be created just for your group. Create some unforgettable memories running an early morning run on the Dubrovnik City Walls, before they open to the public. Or create a spectacular triathlon running, swimming/kayaking and biking across the beautiful Elaphiti Islands. Have a beach volleyball tournament in one of the secluded Adriatic Sea bays, or a sailing regatta with some world class skippers from Split and Dubrovnik sailing clubs as your team coaches.

As your DMC partner, DT Croatia will help you pick the right activity for your group, the location and the time of the year, to let the Croatian sporting spirit help your team discover its inner drive to win.
