About Croatia

Combine Dubrovnik with a visit to one of the small islands.

Croatia is a destination that has evolved in a spectacular way in recent years into a contemporary holiday destination offering luxury hotels and spectacular coastlines, which combine perfectly with lots of things to see and do.

Although Croatia offers a large selection of holiday hot spots, one of the most famous is Dubrovnik; Dubrovnik is world renowned for its reputation as the best preserved medieval walled city in the Mediterranean and is only one of three European cities to have been awarded World Heritage site of zero category by UNESCO. It's steeped in history and as you walk around the harbour area, you will be transported back to the 13th century.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday by the sea why not head off to one of Croatia’s exclusive islands? The fashionable island of Hvar is a must for the rich and famous and offers visitors a very attractive harbour front.

If you are looking for stunning coastline and unforgettable scenery you may want to consider a visit to the northern region of Istria; here you will find the pretty resort of Porec. Even further north you will find the resort of Savudrija positioned just across the bay from Slovenia.
