Holidaymakers from all walks of life will feel welcome in Croatia. Ever since the Independence Wars in the 90s, the country has blossomed into its own. Despite its location in the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is Mediterranean at heart. Not the Mediterranean of boozy beach resorts and overcrowded beaches, but the one where old ladies dress in head-to-toe black in the heat of summer, colourful seaside towns are undisturbed by top 40 tunes — unless, of course, you head to one of the many music festivals — and delicious restaurants hide amongst cobbled streets.
Dubrovnik is a favourite Croatian destination amongst tourists. Sightseeing in the historic Old Town, soaking up the sun at one of the urban beaches and enjoying a wild night out are musts during your stay in Dubrovnik. Home to the beautiful city of Split and an array of sun-drenched islands, the Dalmatian region is perfect for families of all shapes and sizes. Families and couples will fall in love with Hvar, Brac and the Drvenik islands, where charming beach resorts will satisfy all your holiday needs.
Stretching along the coast of the Dalmatian region, at the foot of Mount Biokovo and just 3 km away from Brela, Baska Voda is a charming fishing village lapped by the clear waters of the Adriatic sea. Widely appreciated for its tradition and hospitality, Baska Voda offers sandy beaches among pine woods, white pebble beaches, and fresh mountain air. Explore its palaces, Roman ruins, religious architecture; sunbathe on one of its sandy beaches, or hike up the pine forest that covers the entirety of Marajan Hill for a panoramic view of the sea and the city below.
With stunning landscapes, traditional seafood, festivals and concerts performed around the old town, and ante UNESCO World Heritage museum, Split is an ideal destination for a holiday in the Mediterranean. Italian influences and Mediterranean landscapes dot the region with olive groves, vineyards, and rustic towns. Stroll up the narrow, winding streets of Hum the smallest city in the world , explore the Roman amphitheatre of Pula, head to Umag for a tour of walls and towers dating back to Roman times, or take a walk across the beaches and natural gems of Vrsar — home to a small airport that will let you fly over the area.
The beaches here are sandy — unlike many on the mainland, which tend to be pebbly. There are also some gorgeous seafront restaurants and a generally relaxed island charm. Hvar, Brac and the Drvenik islands are situated just between Split and Dubrovnik, and each one has its own draw. With secluded beaches and coves, and a number of lively restaurants and bars right on the sand, there is plenty on offer. Many of the islands have accommodation if you wanted to spend a few days, or why not hop between them and find your favourite? Croatia is home to eight wondrous national parks.
We definitely recommend you visit the Plitvice National Park, where several trekking routes take you across the sixteen interconnected lakes. The Upper Town area has the presidential palace, the Croatian parliament buildings and many of the museums and galleries, making it a great place to start your visit.
Wedding in Dubrovnik, Croatia
The Umjetnicki Paviljon often boasts good touring exhibitions, while the market at Britanski Trg, or British Square, is a good place to get lunch and soak up the local culture. The former is popular with families and is the spiritual home of the Dalmatian sport picigin basically net-less volleyball in the shallows on the beach. The latter is a golden sand paradise kissed by translucent waters. Croatia has no shortage of historic and cultural landmarks to explore.
Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Austro-Hungarian monuments sprinkle Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split, while traditional Croat culture shines through every cobbled street. There are almost as many festivals in Croatia as there are islands. Though the waters are still too brisk for swimming, Croatian spring days are cool enough for hiking, biking, and outdoors events. In May, the Film Festival finds Croatia teeming with local and international filmmakers, and the Contemporary Music Festival will give you a glimpse into the local musical tradition.
Prices for Croatia holidays peak during the summer season, when the Croatian coast tends to be flooded with tourists and locals enjoying the seaside.

Croatian winters tend to get harsher inland, with a generally snowy Zagreb and high chances of rain on the coast. Ski lovers will enjoy the many ski resorts easily reached from Zagreb, but the temperatures might be too forbidding for other outdoors activities. February offers a wealth of festivals as well, with the popular Feast of St Blaise which offers concerts as well as a parade of Croatian costumes and folk dances and Carnival, when the streets of Stradun buzz with masked balls, singing and dancing.
Croatian cuisine is a happy blend of Mediterranean and Eastern European fare.

Fresh fish and seafood feature on most menus, while Italian influences are especially strong in coastal regions. Croatia has continued to keep its reputation for offering fantastic nightlife for years. Eating late and outside gives Croatia a modern and cosmopolitan vibe, and while there are plenty of traditional local dishes like rich stews and octopus salad, it is the pizza craze that is among the most popular.
