Croatia tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Hip and happening Croatia combines the best of Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean to devastating effect. Wooded hills, traditional villages, idyllic islands, walled medieval cities and Roman ruins are amongst the attractions in region's such as Dalmatia and Istria. Then there's the stunning, unspoilt coast and the archipelago of islands lying offshore.

Croatia's cultural gems

Dubrovnik, dubbed the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a city of terracotta roofs, Baroque churches and winding cobbled streets that conceal all sorts of discoveries. Split, built around a Roman palace is a lively, cosmopolitan centre full of Venetian Gothic stone buildings. Inland, the capital Zagreb is packed full of history, dating back to the Middle Ages; full of monuments and fine buildings, it's a vibrant, bustling place.

Natural wonders, from national parks to idyllic islands

Elsewhere, it's all mountains and forests, waterfalls and lakes, encapsulated in the gorgeous Plitvice Lakes National Park. Then there are the islands; over 2,000km of coastline straggle more than 1,000 islands, islets and reefs, meaning that there's somewhere for everyone. Take a Croatia cruise or island hop to see several destinations at once, from traditional Brac with its iconic beach, Zlatni Rat to glitzy Hvar and medieval Korcula. Elsewhere, wild Kornati, unspoilt Mljet and beautiful Vis all compete for your attention.

Where to go in Croatia

Zagreb, Croatia

Zagreb

Zagreb, Croatia's capital city, is situated inland away from the more well-known regions of Dalmatia and Istria. Although not generally on the beaten track, this area still has plenty to offer visitors.

Korcula, Croatia

Korcula

Korcula, the largest in the chain of Dalmatian islands, is an island of quiet coves and sandy beaches. With scenic drives along the southeast coastline Korcula is also one of the less touristy islands in the region.

Hvar, Croatia

Hvar Island

Hvar, the sunniest place in Croatia, is easily the country's most luxurious island. Considered to be among the most beautiful islands in the world, Hvar should be on the itinerary of anyone interested in rubbing shoulders with the glitterati or discovering a fresh up-and-coming island paradise.

Brac Island, Croatia

Brac Island

Brac Island's greatest attraction is Zlatni Rat beach at Bol, which juts out into the clear seas of the Adriatic; this sloping pebble expanse is one of Dalmatia's premiere bathing spots.

The Adriatic coast experiences a Mediterranean climate, which means warm, dry summers and cool, moist winters - thus the Northern Hemisphere summer is the best time to visit for tourists in search of a beach holiday. The interior of Croatia is classified as a Continental climate, which means a greater range between summer highs and winter lows than is seen on the coast. The Dinaric Alps experience the most precipitation, and in the winter this can appear as snow.
