With ancient walled cities and a long coastline lapped by sapphire waters, Croatia is a Mediterranean gem. Read more...

Be awed by the stunning coastline and ancient walled cities of this Mediterranean gem. As you’re sailing along the coastline on a replica galleon, stop at some of the thousand islands, many of them uninhabited, to explore hidden coves and relax on white sand beaches.

In the seaside city of Dubrovnik, wander along the streets of the Old Town before taking the cable car to the top of Mount Srdj to stare out over the Adriatic and the surrounding landscape. Other towns, like Split, date back centuries to the Roman Empire and boast some of the most impressive ruins in Europe.

It may be hard to tear yourself away from the beautiful and historic coast, but Croatia’s interior is equally as stunning. The capital Zagreb is dominated by Austro-Hungarian architecture, but has a character all its own – with museums and galleries, bars and restaurants, and a full cultural calendar. Further south is the Plitvice Lakes National Park, where 16 terraced, emerald-green lakes are joined by stunning waterfalls.


  • Swim in turquoise waters and explore coastal villages on a sailing trip from Split to Dubrovnik.
  • Follow the wooden walking trails around and over the beautiful lakes in Plitvice Lakes National Park.
  • Kayak beneath Dubrovnik’s city walls, find a hidden sea cave and paddle to Lokrum Island.
  • Explore the winding stone streets of the walled town of Hvar.
  • Follow in the footsteps of Daenerys Targaryen in Klis, which doubles as Meereen in Game of Thrones.
