Croatia is attracting more and more tourists looking for new adventures all year round. Sandwiched between the Balkan nations and central Europe, Croatia benefits from a stunning coastline sprinkled with islands and cities bursting at the seams with history and culture.
Many travellers visit to immerse themselves in the historical wonders of Split and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dubrovnik. Whether it’s your first or fiftieth time visiting, the city of Dubrovnik, ‘The Pearl of the Adriatic’, is a truly inspiring and special place to find yourself wandering around. After an incredible recovery from a shelling attack in 1991, this coastal city has transformed itself into an increasingly popular tourist destination visited all year round. Boasting a kaleidoscope of cultural and historical treasures, some of which are encompassed within its walled city whilst others are dotted along the Dalmatian coast.
Croatia’s second biggest city, Split, is an interesting contrast of traditional architecture combined with a modern way living. The streets are laced with colour and a vibrant atmosphere, set among the cities historical walls. A stay in Spilt is a great way to experience the Dalmatian culture first hand.
Perhaps one of Croatia’s biggest draws is its island-sprinkled coastline, a stunning landscape stretching 1100 miles, with an impressive medley of 1184 islands. These islands are nothing if not diverse, with many different sizes, some lush and green, some isolated rock-strewn reefs and following suit from the rest of the country, some of the islands of Croatia boast rich history and culture, along with fantastic walking opportunities. Our Gentle Walking Islands of Croatia trip visits four of these Islands including, Brač, Hvar, Korčula and Mljet.View our holidays here
