Rest of Croatia

Croatia has so many great towns, cities and islands to visit including the beautiful Kvarner Riviera, historic city of Dubrovnik and lovely islands of Hvar and Losinj to name but a few. Therefore, you can be sure you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Croatia – whether it’s somewhere off the beaten track, a boutique hotel or a five-star popular hotel that’s great for children, it has it all. The weather is superb in the summer months too making this a great destination for sun lovers.

Split is Croatia’s second largest city and it enjoys a lovely location on the east shore of the Adriatic. This modern port town is bustling with activity and it’s where you can see Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This ancient palace was built for the Roman emperor Diocletian and is a extraordinary site of ancient structures located in a prime harbourside position.

Krk Island is Croatia’s biggest island with Krk Town and Malinska attracting a large number of tourists each year. Krk is celebrated for its wine and local producers showcase their wines during the Krk Wine Days at the end of August each year.

Lopud Island has very little development inland but at the port, there are a number of restaurants, cafes and hotels. It’s a wonderful place for a get-away-from-it-all break. It’s also famous for having one of the best sandy beaches in the Elaphiti Islands. Rab Island is also a good choice as it’s one of the sunniest places in Europe yet the rainfall is sufficient to ensure a lush landscape bursting with greenery.

Leisure & Activities

National Parks
Croatia boasts no less than eight national parks, but probably the most stunning of them all is Plitvice Lakes National Park. Situated a couple of hours by road from Zagreb, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has plenty to offer for the whole family. There are wooden plank trails from which you can view and admire stunning waterfalls which crash into the 16 interconnecting lakes below.

Zagreb is a wonderful city just to walk around and admire the beautiful architecture. There’s a lot more to it of course, including museums and galleries plus fantastic boutique shopping. Along the way there plenty of eating outlets with every conceivable cuisine including authentic local food.

Island Hopping
Croatia has over 1000 islands and the best way to discover at least a few of them is by island hopping aboard the local ferry service. Some of the islands offer peaceful tranquillity and a fantastic feel of going back in time.
