From brilliant blue beaches, natural, historic and cultural sites that are a sight to behold, heavenly food to exquisite wine, Croatia has it all. It’s difficult to pick a set of things to do in this country, but here are a few.
Swim in the Blue Cave of Bisevo
The sun rays illuminate the cave an ethereal blue when they reflect off of its limestone floor.
Walk Around Dubrovnik
Remember these ancient walls from somewhere?
Visit the real-life version of King’s Landing and admire the beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea.
Take a Wine Tour
Croatia has a long and turbulent history of wine making. Visit the wine cellars and taste their wines while enjoying the views of the very vineyards they were made from.
Visit Plitvice Lakes National Park
It encompasses 16 cascading emerald-blue waterfalls that make for one of the best waterfalls you’ll ever lay your eyes on.
Go to the Kornati National Park
This archipelago consists of 89, practically uninhabited, islands, islets, and reefs sprinkled over the Adriatic Sea. Sail around to explore these islets by a private sailing boat.
Hit the Beaches
Beaches are probably the main reason why people visit Croatia. You’ll find some of the best beaches along the Makarska Riviera in Dalmatia.
This Venetian-era town, located on the Istrian Peninsula, has gorgeous pastel-colored houses and the Adriatic Sea at its feet making it extremely photogenic.
Admire the Romanesque Churches of Zadar
This car-free town is known for housing some of the finest Romanesque churches. The Church of St. Mary, Cathedral of St. Anastasia and the Church of St. Donatus are a must-visit.
Go back in time at the Pula Arena
It is the only Roman amphitheater whose four side towers and all three Roman architectural orders are still intact.
