Have you ever spent a night in pristine nature among the treetops? There is something really magical about it. Ever since I was a child it was a dream of mine, growing up, watching movies and seeing all the fun and adventures kids were having in their tree houses, I wished to experience the same.
And though I grew up, the wish remained – luckily, tree houses are not just reserved for kids anymore but are seeing a rise in popularity. In the last couple of years, people have been discovering new ways to enjoy nature and to connect with it at on as many levels as possible. And what better possible way than to spend your time among the treetops? Here are a few of the most wonderful tree houses in Croatia where you can have a great stay.
