top places to visit in croatia
Dubrovnik is one of the most popular destinations in Croatia thanks its charming old town on the shores of the Adriatic. As such it can get overrun with tourists in sumemr so I advise heading to one of the lesser known, but no less impressive towns or cities.
Sibenik is a beautiful city about halfway between Zadar and Split. It’s the closest large settlement to the stunning Krka National Park and is also worth spending a few days discoveing thanks to its beautiful old town.
Split is another popular holiday town in southern Croatia and is famed as the home of Roman emperor Diocletian. You can walk around the ruins of his former palace in the centre of the city as well as exploring the coast and nearby islands.
Zadar was the first place I ever visited in Croatia and remains one of my favourites. Wander around the cobbled streets of its old town, witness the incredible sea organ, and explore nearby beaches.
Zagreb is Croatia’s relaxed capital in the north and away from the coast. It makes a great base for exploring and is definitely worth spending a few days. The Museum of Broken Relationships is one of its more quirky attractions.
