Famous for its spectacular seafront location on the Dalmatian coast coupled with its evocative and historic old city centre, Dubrovnik was founded in the 7th century and has been ruled through the centuries by the Venetians and the Hungarians, each of which have left their mark. Home to Croatia’s artistic and intellectual elite, Dubrovnik offers numerous cultural activities and festivals. Highlights of a visit include walking around its picturesque old streets and alleys while visiting such excellent attractions as its splendid cathedral and treasury.
As the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is a thriving and energetic city, which hosts some of its top museums, shopping, dining, and cafe culture. Zagreb is also a city made for wandering, with most of its main things to do found in the city centre.
Split is the second largest city in Croatia. It’s a fantastic place to visit if you want to see Dalmatian life as it’s really lived. Always buzzing, this exuberant city has just the right balance between tradition and modernity. Step inside Diocletian’s Palace (a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments) and you’ll see dozens of bars, restaurants and shops thriving amidst the atmospheric old walls where Split has been humming along for thousands of years.
