Croatia Has 3rd Cleanest Water In Europe

Croatia’s sea was ranked 3rd in the world for quality according to the European Enviroment Agency’s annual bathing water report for 2012. Croatia was behind Cyprus and Malta in the report which has been produced for the last 20 years.

Throughout 2012 samples from over 770 beaches in Croatia were tested with 98% of the samples returning excellent or good results. Bathing sites at beaches, rivers and lakes across Europe are regularly tested for harmful pollutants and bacteria, such as E. coli, which may indicate the presence of sewage or livestock waste and help form the European Enviroment Agency’s annual report.
