    What do you think of it?
    What about ad placements, are they ok? Too many?

    I'd say combine the header and tagline into a banner image to spruce up the top of the page. I don't think there are too many ads, really.

    Nice Website, great photos.
    I'd recommend you add some videos of the important places. Look at this site geobeats.com. Maybe you could pick up some videos from them. I find it so good that I look at their videos before planning to go anywhere.

    Thank you all for feedback. Will definitely do a website title background. Ads, I think are not overcrowded, since there is plenty of content.
    For videos, I will try to get some good ones that present Croatia beauties ;)

    Thanks again for your input. If anyone still has comments, everyone is more than welcome to.

    @dc0ded - I have no idea why you could not access it, server was ok at all times :(

    It's a nice and cool website. The ads placements are okay for me. The layout is simple and plain.

    1. Move the country flat all the way to the top just below the login & register. Appears too clutter.
    2. left align the under the Travel Guide category
    3. The text spacing below TV spot of HTZ not evenly spread out.

    To increase the click rate of google ads, put them in between content of the page. No on the right or left side.

    Also,make sure that font type of Google Ad same with the content of your website.

    What do you mean by this? I do not understand.
    Will try that, but I think first level should be bold or different color, to differentiate them more easily.
    Thanks, this is sorted now. It is a problem with alignment when too many long words are in the posts ;)
