The Essential
A subtle cocktail of relaxation, culture and nature, Croatia is one of the most popular destinations in Europe.
The Dalmatian coast is fully worthy of close scrutiny from the antique Imperial Roman city of Split, magnificent cathedrals of Trogir and Sibenik to, a little further inland, the peaceful National Park of Krka, and, above all, the ramparts of the "pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik.
From town to town, the seaboard is dotted with beaches and creeks... For seaside activities, sunbathing and snorkelling, set sail for the islands: Brac, for example, is the site of the stunning beach of Zlatni Rat.
Further north, the magnificent string of islands of the Gulf of Kvarner rises out of the sea, followed by the narrow mountain headland of Istria and its treasures: picturesque port of Rovinj, Euphrasian basilica of Porec, without forgetting wine, olive oil and truffles!
Finally head inland and sample the lively, student atmosphere of the capital Zagreb, admire the vegetation at Zagorge and make sure you don't miss the superb Plitvice Lakes which all go to prove, should it still be necessary, that Croatia has no lack of appeals!

Croatia : Island hopping between Split and Dubrovnik

The Dalmatian coast is rich and varied enough to cater for all types of holidaymakers. Depending on your taste you can enjoy scuba diving in the Blue Grotto on the island of Bisevo, chilling out on Zlatni Rat beach on the island of Brac, or culture vulturing in the towns of Hvar and Korcula. This itinerary takes in all these activities and takes you down the coast in stages, finishing with a memorable visit to the city of Dubrovnik.


Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most stunning cultural jewels. Clinging to a rock, encased by a girdle of ramparts and lapped by a turquoise sea, Croatia’s famous town is fully worthy of its title “pearl of the Adriatic”. Over one thousand years old, this stone oasis first appeals by its architectural harmony. Yet Dubrovnik is far from frozen in the past. In summertime, it is particularly lively and dotted with terraces from which the visitor can observe the unending fresco of life in the city.
