Croatia – A Mediterranean Jewel
Istria – having a car is the best way to visit this area. See the coastal towns of Porec, Rovinj & Pula. We suggest you also go inland to the hilltop town of Motovun and learn about their region famous for truffles. Taste their truffle oil and eat in one of many restaurants that offer traditional Croatian food while at the same time taking in the views over the peninsula that cannot be found anywhere else.
Sibenik – Sibenik is located on the Krka River. You will see a hilltop fortress built from the 15th to 17th century, a UNESCO listed cathedral as well as having access to as many as 242 islands & islets. The Kornati archipelago consists of 152 islands, the most densely grouped cluster of islands in the Mediterranean.
Croatian Islands – simply the gem of Croatia. Take advantage of our island hopping packages to make sure you don’t miss any highlights such as Hvar, Korčula, Mljet or Vis. Perhaps rent a villa for a week to really know how the locals live.
Split – the second largest city in Croatia. Walk the promenade along the Adriatic Sea and soak in the vibrant atmosphere. Visit the UNESCO listed Diocletian’s Palace which has been described as one of the best displays of Roman architecture in the world.
Zagreb – a vibrant city of 800 000, the capital of Croatia. The city is a centre for higher education and also boasts a charming medieval old city with cobbled streets.
Plitvice Lakes National Park – definitely a must see. Have your camera with you to see the turquoise lakes formed from basins of limestone and dolomite. Take a boat ride on the lake. The area is also home to an extremely wide variety of animal and bird species. Rare fauna such as the European brown bear, wolf, eagle, owl, wild cat and capercaillie can be found.
