Croatia is what Mediterranean dreams are made of. Meander down sun-kissed cobblestone streets, shaded by mediaeval walled towns and find yourself at the precipice of turquoise Adriatic waters, shimmering with a jewel-like intensity.
Almost anywhere you go in Croatia, it will feel like a fairytale..or like you're on the set of Game of Thrones, especially in Dubrovnik!
Boasting the largest archipelago in the Adriatic Sea, Croatia has over 1,000 islands, inlets, and cliffs with 49 islands being inhabited, making it one of Europe’s summer hotspots. Some of these islands are notorious for their mind-blowing party scenes like the swanky island of Hvar and the festival island of Pag.
If you want to party like you’ve never partied before, you can even island hop and experience some of the best clubs in Europe found inside castles, caves, and on gorgeous beaches.
Croatia offers something for everyone though - not just for partygoers. The island of Mljet is a divine place for tranquillity and cruisey outdoor escapes with a National Park and minimal tourism.
Seductive and inspiring, live out your Mediterranean fairy tale in Croatia - it will revitalise your spirit!
Beyond the sparkling beaches and cobblestone streets, Croatia is overflowing with a rich history and culture, all tightly packed into the country’s petite physical territory.
To step foot in this beautiful country is to step back in time, with several sites and cities in Croatia inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The people are friendly, laid back, and will always find a reason to drink and sing.
Similar to many European countries, sharing food and drinks with loved ones plays a large role in Croatian life. If you’re lucky enough to be invited into a family home, then you can always expect something delicious cooking away on the stove and a Croatian mother urging you to “Jedi! Jedi! Jedi!” which means “Eat! Eat! Eat!”.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that cafe culture is a big part of European life, but Croatians take this to a whole new level, sometimes spending hours at a time just drinking in the sparkling Adriatic views and a nice cup of kava!
The climate in Croatia can vary from month to month so it's important to do your research before jumping on a plane. In our opinion, the best time to visit Croatia is in the warmer months between May and October, when the water is a pleasant temperature, the weather is sunny, and the beaches aren’t too crowded with tourists.
July and August tend to be the busiest periods in Croatia for tourism so try to avoid these months if possible, as general prices and accommodation rates can increase.
If you intend to travel outside of the popular months, then it's best to plan ahead as some establishments (small hotels, amenities and restaurants) may be closed during this time, not to mention the weather in inland areas can be quite temperamental.
The country is trying to expand its tourist season so you will find that each year, more and more establishments will remain open for longer.
Despite the almost thousand-year old history of Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb is known as a young and modern metropolis with the heart and soul of ‘Old Town’ Croatia. Travellers are encouraged to explore the Neo-Gothic architecture on foot, scoring a front row seat to some incredible street art, coffee shops hidden amongst the classic facades, and lush gardens. Widely considered as the political, commercial and cultural heart of Croatia, Zagreb is a true feast for your senses!
No visit to Croatia is complete without a trip to the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik. The place where stark white baroque architecture meets the sparkling turquoise Adriatic sea, it’s as captivatingly beautiful as it sounds. Within the city walls, find hidden wine bars, waterfront seafood restaurants, white pebble beaches and a number of beautiful, rustic hotels. It’s no wonder Dubrovnik has been labelled the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ and is beloved by locals and foreigners alike. With that signature timeless, medieval charm, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Dubrovnik was a favourite filming location for Game of Thrones!
