Croatia is the first country in Europe to start with commercial naturism, other countries in Europe was limited to clubs. The first naturist camp opened in Istra and Dalamatien in 1960. At that time, there were more than 100,000 naturists who spent their holiday in Croatia. Tourists tend to come from Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, as well as other liberal countries. Up to 15% of the Croats practice nudism! Naturist beaches in Croatia are marked as “FKK”. This is the abbreviation for the German word “Freikörperkultur” (free body culture). The FKK sign is ubiquitous all along the Croatian coast.
