Featured Destinations

Dubrovnik

Classed as a world heritage treasure by UNESCO, Dubrovnik is a place of ancient streets lined with stone palaces, Venetian-style buildings and bell towers. The city is enclosed by stone walls, and the highlight is a leisurely walk atop these massive walls for a great view of the city and the sea. Entering Dubrovnik, you are greeted by an impressive pedestrian promenade, the Placa, which extends before you all the way to the clock tower at the other end of town. The Orlando Tower here is a favorite meeting place. Just inside the city walls near the Pile Gate is the Franciscan Monastery housing the third-oldest functioning pharmacy in Europe, operating since 1391. For a fantastic panorama of the city, take a cable car ride to the summit of the 1,340-foot Mount Srdj.

Korcula

Korçula is said to be one of the most beautiful as well as the largest of the Croatian islands. Seasoned travelers compare Korçula to a latter-day Eden. Korçula’s main town is one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean. Visit the birthplace of Marco Polo, and see Korçulan buildings featuring mainly Gothic and Renaissance architecture, and residual Romanesque style. View traditional knightly games like the chivalrous Moreska dance, a spectacular, dynamic war-dance with swords that has been in existence for seceral hundred years. Travelers flock to Korcula, appreciating its stunning location, natural beauty and impressive medieval look. If that’s not enough, there are numerous attractions, such as the City Museum, the Bishop’s Treasury, a collection of icons, art galleries and old churches with priceless paintings.

Rab Island

Rab Island is one of the most densely wooded islands in the Adriatic and is a botanical exhibition. The Komrcar Park, with its diversity of trees, is now the pride of Rab. Its more than 300 freshwater springs helped Rab be known as one of the greenest islands in the Adriatic. This principal town is walled and has three parallel main streets built on a steep promontory along the west coast. At the south end is a 13th-century Romanesque cathedral - the first in a line of four bell towers on a ridge dominating the old town. The town with its typical, twisting and narrow Mediterranean streets preserves many monuments of art; medieval churches, the Loggia, Venetian patrician palaces with beautiful doorways.

Split

Split, the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast, is the heart of Dalmatia. The old town is built around the harbor on the south side of a high peninsula sheltered from the open sea by many islands. Split achieved fame when the Roman emperor Diocletian (245-313), noted for his persecution of early Christians, had his retirement palace built here from 295 to 305. Since 1945 Split has grown into a major industrial city with large apartment-block housing areas. Much of old Split remains, however, and this combined with its exuberant nature makes it one of the most fascinating cities in Europe.

Plitvice National Park

The natural attributes of Plitvice Lakes National Park, uniqueness and sensibility of that phenomenon, deserve full attention of visitors. Its natural diversity and harmony of shapes and colours in any of the seasons are enough to make any visitor amazed by the beauty. UNESCO has declared it with all rights as the World's natural inheritance.

Zadar

Zadar's many promenadors on the shore have a feeling they are on board the starboards of which are being laved by the waves carried by the warm zephyrus. Zadar is a town on the seaside. It is floating on the reef and closing from times a gap between itself and land, a harbor which was a pulse of its history. All the maritime and land ways led to this harbour and on their crossings the ancient marketplace was made, which became the origin of the Town, the very springwell of its life.

Opatija

Opatija, this elegant tourist destination, lies at the center of the Riviera with the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia. The very attractive geographic position, enabling its warm seas to be quickly reached from many cities in Central Europe, lush green scenery and pleasant climate were some of the main reasons for its beginning and the quick development of its tourism at the end of the 19th century. Well-maintained public gardens, the illuminated 12-km-long coastal promenade known as the "Lungomare", well-kept beaches and fountains provide a stunning backdrop for the villas and hotels that cater comfortably for up to 6,000 guests.

Sibenik

This attractive coastal city shows traces of its fascinating history, having been under Venetian, Byzantine, Bosnian, Austrian, Italian and Hungarian rule over the centuries. The old town centers on Poljana Square, which is surrounded by old patrician houses and palaces. Be sure to visit City Hall and the baroque-style Church of St. Lawrence. The pearl of the city is the Cathedral of St. Jacob, which was built by Juraj Dalmatinac in the 15th century. It's been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its unusual construction and ornamentation. Fortresses that once were used in defense of the city are now attractive spots with beautiful views. There's also a museum in what once was an elaborate palace. Popular day trips out of Sibenik include the magnificent Krka River National Park and the Kornati Islands National Park.

Zagreb

Croatia's capital and largest city, Zagreb also was the cultural capital of the former Yugoslavia. The city boasts many museums, art galleries, orchestras and folk festivals. Today, outdoor cafes are full, dance clubs pump music into the night air and art festivals are as popular as they were before the war. Zagreb has several reminders of the Austro-Hungarian period, particularly the decorated facades and the deep yellow color of old government buildings.

Krka National Park

The National Park boasts an exceptionally wealthy variety of flora and fauna. Skradinski Buk is one of the most beautiful attractions in the park with various foot paths to the falls. Roski Slap is also a popular attraction where visitors can reach the beautiful cascades by boat. There are also archaeological sites of fortresses in the park dating back to Roman times that visitors may explore.

Bled

Bled became an independent, self-governing municipality in 1995. Its natural beauty, points of interest, and advantageous location south of the Alps, make Bled ideal for tourism. The castle, the lake, and the island in the middle of the lake are sights by which Bled is known world-wide. Bled Castle, a silent witness to its former power, stands watch over the town perched on a rock high above the lake. Lake Bled is renowned for exceptional beauty. The forested slopes of the Jelovica and Pokljuka, the Julian Alps with their highest peak Triglav - the simbol of the Slovenian nation - and the Karavanke Mountains, serve as the background to this heavenly spot. In the middle of the lake lies the island with the Church of the Assumption - both of which have a rich history. Inside the church there is the wishing bell from 1534. Bled and its surroundings provide a number of interesting sights worth a visit.
