Explore the Adriatic Sea while onboard a luxury yacht, indulge in authentic cuisine, and become immersed in the abundant cultural heritage the gorgeous region offers. Read on to discover more highlights and delights of Croatia.
The Plitvice lakes
The Plitvice Lakes, one of the oldest national parks in Croatia, is situated a mere two hours from Zagreb. Boasting lush landscapes, the park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Made up of 16 crystalline lakes enclosed in green forests and ethereal waterfalls, magic can be found on every path. The best aerial views of the upper lakes can be found from the Veliki Slap lookout. Croatia is home to eight UNESCO sites, yet this is one-of-a-kind, as it cannot be accessed by boat. The detour inland is a trip that we highly recommend.
Rovinj has an enchanting atmosphere and the bustling harbor, full of fishermen and their boats, adds to its charm. Indulge in a drink on an outdoor terrace, while watching the locals jump with glee into the blue waters. Gazing further inland, you will spy medieval chimneys peppering the landscape and the St. Euphemia church atop a hill.
A peaceful and picturesque island, located at the end of a long bay, Mali Losinj is a must-see on the north Adriatic sea! The island has an abundance of colorful houses situated amid fragrant gardens where herbs thrive. Become mesmerized by the scent of rosemary, sage and lavender while traversing the ornate landscapes that boast incredible views of the azure ocean.
Dubrovnik Old Town
Renowned for its beauty as well as the filming location of the Game of Thrones TV series, Dubrovnik Old Town is certainly one of the most striking cities in the world. With a tower in the old harbor erected as far back as the 14th century, now serving as a maritime museum, we guarantee that everyone will be intrigued.
The Zadar Waterfront, a former fortress of the Venetian Republic and today a sleepy holiday town, is also worth a visit. Here you will find incredible religious art dating back to the 8th century! Romantic and majestic, the seaside, sunlit waterfront will certainly steal your heart.
