With nearly 2000km of rugged coastline, over a thousand islands and a dramatic mountainous hinterland, Croatia is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled countries in Europe. Lose yourself in the maze of ancient alleys of Diocletian’s palace, feast on the finest Adriatic seafood in the gastro-village of Volosko and swim through the aquamarine waters of the ethereal Blue Cave. From the glitz and glamour of Hvar and Dubrovnik to the tranquility of the beautiful Elaphite or Kornati islands, use our map of Croatia below to start planning your trip.
Croatia is filled with impressive historic towns; join a Game of Thrones tour around the popular ancient city of Dubrovnik or try Hvar’s specialty gregada in the glamorous, yacht-filled and wonderfully-preserved old town. For natural beauty, head to Krka or Plitvice Lakes where you’ll find yourself surrounded by magical waterfalls, or hire a boat and enjoy a trip around the islands.
