Croatia has a little bit of everything:

- the gorgeous blue sea, coves, beaches, and islands
- exciting landscapes and adventures including hiking and biking trails, rock climbing, rafting and zip-lining
- a rich history and impressive architecture telling stories of Roman, Venetian, Slavic, Napoleonic times
- delicious food which is a mix of Italian, Greek, and authentic Croatian cuisine

Croatia is a favourite cruise ship destination, usually, the influx from the cruise ships crowd the waters and the towns. However, they have been cancelled since March 2020, so it’s the best time to discover this Mediterranean gem.

Landmarks in Croatia

City Walls and Forts, Dubrovnik

After the popularity of Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik started receiving more and more tourists. It received almost 1.5 million visitors in 2019. After Covid-19, Dubrovnik is set to receive only 30% of those numbers, so when is a better time to discover this beautiful city?

The views over the old town and the Adriatic Sea from the City Walls are incredible, and the gorgeous stone-paved old town and historical buildings of Dubrovnik can take you back in time.

Cathedral of St Domnius and Diocletian’s Palace, Split

Located in Croatia's second-largest city, Cathedral of St Domnius and Diocletian’s Palace are popular historical sites. The Palace forms most of the old town in Split and is on UNESCO’s List and is amongst the most impressive Roman ruins in existence, still lived in today.

Roman Amphitheatre, Pula

The Pula Arena is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers entirely preserved. Built between 27 BC and AD 68, it is amongst the world’s six largest surviving Roman arenas and has been attracting tourists as far back as the Ancient Roman times.

Pula also has ferries to Venice and to the gorgeous Brijuni National Park.

Beaches in Croatia

It’s no surprise that Croatia's island-speckled coastline is its main attraction. With so many options to choose from, your base in Croatia decides on which coasts you can explore, but it’s almost impossible to be disappointed with what you choose.

Zlatni Rat Beach, Bol

Croatia has one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world: Zlatni Rat Beach (Golden Horn) is mesmerising because where the green of the pine trees end, the soft golden sand begins, then you can jump into the refreshing deep blue and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

Lokrum Island, Dubrovnik

Lokrum is an island close to the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia with a monastery and a botanical garden from when Archduke Maximilian Eugen of Austria visited the island. Its crystal clear waters and untouched nature make it the perfect serene destination during your visit to Croatia. There are great kayaking tours to take here.

Kasjuni Beach, Split

Less crowded than city beaches and with a lovely cove, Kasjuni Beach is great for those who want to jump in crystal clear water on the first day they arrive at Split.

Nature in Croatia

Croatia has 12 nature parks and eight national parks and plenty of camping sites for the adventurers who are after discovering unspoilt and non-touristic landscapes and seascapes.

Northern Velebit National Park

Located across Rab island, this National Park is part of Velebit National Park. Velebit is the largest mountain range in Croatia, and it serves as the starting point of the Premuzic Trail, the most scenic hike in Croatia.

Paklenica National Park, Zadar

This is a protected national park and region in Croatia. Paklenica National Park is famous for canyons of Velika and Mala Paklenica, as well as the karst rock formations and black-pine forests. The closest airport is in Zadar, and you’d be well located to discover much less known Dalmatian islands.

Krka National Park

If you love waterfalls and wildlife, Krka National Park in the heart of Dalmatia is for you. Extending along the Krka River, this protected area is perfect for wild swimming. It’s located far from the coast, and the closest big town is Sibernik.
