Best Places to visit in Croatia

The list of Best places to visit in Croatia is endless. If you look at a Croatia Map you will see the country has numerous islands and we are here to help you pick the Croatian Islands and towns that would be the right fit for you and your travel style. While Zagreb is the the capital city of Croatia, many tend to give it a miss. But not far from Zagreb is Plitvice Lakes National Park, one of the Must-visit places in Croatia.

On the coast of Croatia, Dubrovnik and its Old Town are one of the best places to visit in Croatia. Split is another popular place to visit in Croatia with its charming old town full of restaurants and many interesting day trips one can undertake from Split. Zadar and Novalja are more popular with the younger party crowd but equally beautiful.

When it comes to Islands of Croatia and Island hopping in croatia, Hvar is probably the most visited island of Croatia. The old town of Hvar on the eastern coast of the island sees many tourists where as towns like Stari Grad and Jelsa are more suited for the ones who like to avoid crowds. Hvar also offers very good nightlife and offers many Island hopping day trips by boats to neighbouring islands like the Paklinski islands known for their expensive beach clubs and restaurants, the Island of Brač known for the most photographed beach of Croatia-Zlatni Rat, Island of Bisevo known for its Blue Sea Cave and the Island of Vis, where you can truly slow down and embrace Island life.

Our personal favorite is the Istrian Peninsula, where locals holiday. Towns like Pula with it's Roman Ruins and sea caves, Rovinj with its charming portside town and the Istrian countryside with vineyards, caves, hills and beaches make for a wonderful Croatia Roadtrip.

Things to in Croatia

Here is a list of Top Things to do in Croatia! Go island hopping, sunbathing, cliff jumping, snorkeling and exploring sea caves in style on a private yacht tour of Croatia! Spend your days partying at the beach clubs or sailing & exploring obscure islands and charming little fishing villages of Croatia. Once you have had your fill of sun and the sea head to the cooler climes of National Parks like Plitvice Lake and Krka. We recommend spending a night in Plitvice lakes rather than a daytrip.

Opt to stay in the old town of Dubrovnik so you can enjoy the place at night when the day-trippers have left and its main street called Stradun's limestone glistens like gold in the yellow lights! Make a day trip from Dubrovnik to Mostar in Bosnia or to Montenegro, however we recommend spending a few nights in both these countries.

If you are staying a few nights in Split enjoy adventures like zip lining, daytrips to Krka National Park, Island hopping tours to Trogir and surrounding islands and dont forget to spend an evening in Zadar where a special monument called Sea Organ harnesses power of the sea to produce music and the nearby Sun Salutation where a solar glass floor collects solar energy all day and produces not just a trippy light show from sunset to sunrise but also powers the entire harbour-front lights!
