Croatia Travel Guide

The Land of Thousand Islands

Despite spending the last decade as Europe’s fastest-rising holiday destination, Croatia still doesn’t feel overrun with tourists. With new developments kept on a human scale and businesses retaining a pronounced local flavor, the Adriatic coast emphatically retains a unique character. Whether you’re interested in unspoiled Mediterranean islands, edgy urban culture, Game of Thrones location tours or simply splashing around in the Adriatic’s famously clear waters, Croatia is a place to discover many different landscapes and experiences.

Croatia boasts almost 2000 km of rocky shore and more than a thousand islands, many blanketed in luxuriant vegetation. Off-the-beaten-track island, quiet coves and stone-built fishing villages make you feel as if you’re visiting Europe at its most unspoiled. But travel to Croatia and you’ll find the country also has a cool and contemporary sheen evidenced in its arts attractions and galleries, its swanky hotels and cocktail bars, and flashy yacht-filled harbors.

Croatia’s towns and cities aren’t just about ancient monuments. The country’s capital, Zagreb, has a distinctly modern vibe, with its quirky art and alternative music scene. Dubrovnik offers a plethora of eccentric bars, and Hvar Town on the beautiful island of Hvar, a touch of glamour. Several cities also host summer festivals showcasing top-class drama and music.

Undeniably though, its Croatia’s beaches and islands that are the country’s top draw. The Elaphite Island of Kolcep, Lopud and Sipan are among the most beautiful and unspoiled in the Adriatic, and beaches on the Pelješac Peninsula, and on the Dalmatian coast such as those on the islands of Brac and Susak, are surely the most irresistible.
