Picture sapphire seas, ancient cities, dramatic mountains and fascinating culture − and you have just a glimpse of incredible Croatia. Sprawling along the Adriatic Sea, this breathtaking destination offers the celebrated sunny days and balmy nights of the Mediterranean. With so much to see, do and experience along its gorgeous coast and historic interior, it’s easy to see why Croatia is fast becoming one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world.
Azure Oceans and Ivory Beaches
Boasting a thousand-kilometre coastline, Croatia is a beach lover’s dream. Powder-soft sand and smooth pebble beaches set the scene for lazy days spent sun tanning and sipping cocktails. Of course, that’s not all the crystalline waters have to offer. Explore the ocean depths as you dive beneath the waves. Discover spectacular coral reefs, mysterious caves and legendary shipwrecks. Or get active topside with a range of exciting water sports including kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and much more.
Mainland Must-Sees and Island Escapes
Croatia is peppered with over 1000 islands along its gorgeous coastline. Stroll through the verdant vineyards and olive groves of Korcula. Go wine tasting and yachting on glamorous Hvar. Explore the unspoiled hiking and cycling trails of Solta. And savour fresh lobster and truffles on Vis. Back on mainland, take a fascinating walking tour through the walled cities and ancient towns of Dubrovnik. Discover the medieval beauty of Rovinj. Stroll along the promenade at sunset in Split. And that’s just to start!
Ancient Cities and a Modern Capital
Further inland is Zagreb − Croatia’s bustling capital. A dizzying array of art, music, theatre, cafes and interesting architecture make it a great place to soak up some modern-day Croatian culture. History buffs will find plenty to satisfy their culture craving too. Celebrated for its ancient walled city dating back to the 9th century, the old town of Dubrovnik is an absolute must-see. Visit the remains of the Roman amphitheatre in Pula. And marvel at the towering St Euphemia Cathedral in Rovinj.
Impressive Alps and Outdoor Adventure
Stretching all the way from Italy to Albania, the Dinaric Alps are a force to be reckoned with. Here you’ll find a multitude of challenging peaks, jaw-dropping canyons, rushing waterfalls and glittering lakes to explore. Hiking and biking opportunities abound. Adventurous types will have plenty to keep their adrenalin pumping with rock climbing, zip lining and white water rafting to name a few. However, the award for most awe-inspiring natural destination must go to Plitvice Lakes National Park. A UNSECO World Heritage Site, this extraordinary national park features 16 crystalline lakes connected by a series of gorgeous waterfalls and cascades.
