Whether you rent a car or travel by bus, exploring Croatia from top to bottom is a must! There is so much to do and see in this diverse country. From bustling cities to charming towns, with idyllic beaches and breathtaking nature, Croatia truly has it all. Join us as we explore this incredible country by taking a fabulous two week Croatian holiday down the coast!
Start your trip in the north in Zagreb, Croatia’s capital! Explore the modern Donji Grad (Lower Town) and the historic Gornji Grad (Upper Town) to gain a deeper understanding of Zagreb’s past and present. Zagreb is home to quirky museums like the Museum of Broken Relationships as well as buildings and churches dating as far back as the 12C!
Spend at least two days exploring Croatia’s most popular attraction, Plitvicka Jezera. This national park is breath-taking! Make sure to get there early in the morning to beat the crowds. The park is home to sixteen lakes, which are connected by a series of waterfalls and surrounded by lush green verdure. Don’t worry about the time of year you’re visiting – the park is open all year long.
For your next stop on your Croatian holiday, take a beach break on Croatia’s largest island! With gorgeous nature, authentic local culture, towns dating back over 1,000 years, and pristine beaches, Krk promises a good time to all visitors. Make sure to explore several of its charming towns!
Next on your Croatian holiday, head to the amazing city of Zadar. Home to Roman ruins, cobbled streets, and a wealth of culture and history, Zadar also boasts trendy cafes and modern hubs. Make sure to visit Zadar’s unbelievable Sea Organ sculpture, which looks like wide steps going down to the sea and uses the water to make lovely calming sounds.
A great place for setting out to explore Krka National Park, is Sibenik. Croatia’s oldest coastal city is a must see in its own right. Stroll along the winding cobbled streets, and you might recognize it from HBO’s “Game of Thrones!” Explore ancient fortresses, enjoy breathtaking sea views, and experience a more off-the-beaten-track Croatian destination that won’t be overrun by tourists.
A city known for its perfect mix of ancient and modern, Split is a great place to experience Dalmatian culture. Split’s most famous attraction is Diocletian’s Palace, which visitors can freely explore. At night, the columns are lit up and actors dressed as Romans put on fantastic performances! Make sure to visit the nearby islands such as Hvar, which is just a short ferry ride away.
For your final stop on your Croatian holiday, pay a visit to “Game of Thrones” King’s Landing! Dubrovnik is the setting of this famous fictional city. Visitors can even take Game of Thrones tour of the city! A trip to Dubrovnik is like a trip back in time, as you explore ancient streets set against the backdrop of the blue sea. Dubrovnik is the perfect place to finish your Croatian holiday and say goodbye to this unbelievable country.
