Top Places To Visit & Tourist Attractions In Croatia
Located at the top of the Adriatic Sea lies the peninsula of Istria. Shared by Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, the peninsula is largely dominated by Croatia but enjoys a unique culture that blends all three. This beautiful stretch of Adriatic coastline has been welcoming holidaymakers for decades, but is still much less frequented than the country’s southern Dalmatian coast, making it a perfect way to get a glimpse at authentic Croatian culture. On our holidays to Croatia’s Adriatic Coast, we’ll visit the coastal towns, Pula, Rovinj and Poreč to discover the remarkably preserved Roman and Venetian heritage throughout the region.
Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is known for its stunning coastline, multitude of islands and unique culture and traditions. Its origins as a maritime Kingdom and trade centre with the Venetian republic have given this region a rich history that is waiting to be discovered. On our holidays to Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, we’ll discover this history as we visit the cities of Šibenik, Split, and Trogir with a local, expert guide and enjoy plenty of free time to relax by the vivid blue waters of the Adriatic Sea.
If you’re more of a city person, then Dubrovnik, often referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” should be your next stop. Sandwiched between Croatia’s rugged mountains and sparkling blue sea, Dubrovnik has something for everyone with its stunning architecture and spectacular views. Famous for its cobbled streets, medieval architecture and historic buildings, it also boasts an endless supply of modern hotels, chic boutiques and stylish bars. Throw in the beautiful weather, delicious food and friendly locals and it’s easy to see why Dubrovnik is fast becoming a modern alternative to the traditional Mediterranean holiday spots.
The city of Pula has been an important stronghold since the prehistoric era because of its strategic location on the Istrian peninsula. The city itself has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times but luckily, some of its most stunning architecture has been preserved to this day. On our holidays that include Pula, we’ll see some of the highlights of the town including the Triumphal Arch of the Sergii, the Gate of Hercules, and the Twin Gates and the Temple of Augustus. A highlight of any visit to Pula is its Roman Amphitheatre, which was built in the 1st century.
The city of Split, after Pula, is home to some of Croatia’s best Roman Architectural remains and a must-see when visiting the country’s Dalmatian Coast. The famous palace of Diocletian was built for a Roman Emperor in 305 AD and is still incredibly preserved to this day. On our Croatian holidays including Split, we’ll walk through the winding cobbled streets of the city’s old town and enjoy a visit to St. Dulmus cathedral and treasury; all with an expert guide to give us the history of this impressive city.
