Let us help you out on this one! There are so many places and attractions in Croatia you can visit it’s almost impossible to highlight only a few but the fact that Croatia is a small country with all the sites just a few hours away from each other makes things much easier than almost anywhere else.

The first stop you should visit is Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. Here you can experience so many historical influences, visit many interesting museums, and events, try all kinds of dishes and go shopping for great prices, matter what you’re looking for. Here are only some of the activities you can try and the best thing is that you can continue your trip from Zagreb to the most popular places in Croatia, find out how on this link.

Plitvice is often a stop on the way to the coast, so while you’ve visited this wonder of nature, it’s the seaside where you should be heading to see and feel what everyone is talking about when it comes to Croatia and its attractions!

In the Northern parts of the seaside like Istria you can experience true luxury vacation and bits of ancient history like in Pula (and even try out truffle hunting!) and don’t forget to visit the, how we call it, „the Pearl of Kvarner“ – Opatija!

The Mid-Adriatic holds two cities that are a must for vacation and sightseeing in one – Zadar and Split. 
Zadar is the rising star of Croatian tourism thanks to attractions like Sea Organ and Salutation to the Sun and its priceless historical and cultural value!

If you ask local Dalmatians which city they consider the capital of the Dalmatia region, most of them will agree that Split holds the title. The second biggest city in Croatia (after Zagreb), Split truly offers numerous activities and attractions, of which may be the most popular one, is the legendary Diocletian’s palace. What are the other hidden adventures waiting for you in Split, find out on tour!

The more we move to the South, the more attractive it gets!

Maybe the No.1 destination of all in Croatia definitely would be the magical, incredible Dubrovnik! The place where Game of Thrones was filmed (if you’re a fan of the show, then this tour is something just for you!) as well as many other popular movies and shows only proves that this truly is a hidden gem of the Adriatic coast.
