6 compelling reasons to visit Croatia

There are a million reasons to visit this Adriatic gem but number one on the list has to be its breathtaking natural beauty and spectacular sights.

Here are our top 6 reasons why you should visit Croatia:

Crystal Clear Waters

Croatia is renowned for its countless number of beautiful beaches with turquoise waters and white sands or smooth pebbles. There are so many diverse beaches to choose from in this glorious country – here are our favourites:

Zlatni Rat

Zlatni Rat in Brac, Croatia

Also known as the Golden Cape, this unusual stretch of beach located on Brač has been named one of the top three Best Beach Destinations in Europe which doesn’t come as a surprise – this beach is paradise! This is an excellent day trip if staying in Split – simply get the ferry to Supetar which runs regularly throughout the day.

Banje Beach

Banje Beach in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Offering stunning views and surrounded by excellent facilities including bars and restaurants, Banje Beach is the most popular in Dubrovnik. This beach can get quite busy during peak season with tourists so for those looking for a more relaxing beach experience, check out Sveti Javok which is far less crowded!

History

Croatia has a long eventful history behind it and a wonderfully rich culture. It is so easy to immerse yourself in the country’s history by visiting its ancient ruins and fabulous monasteries which are scattered all across the country. Our favourite historical pick is Diocletian’s Palace, located in Split.

These glorious Roman ruins are some of the most valuable and imposing on the Adriatic coast and a definite must-see on any visit to Croatia. Diocletian’s Palace is not only extremely well preserved and fascinating, but also stunningly beautiful.

Pop Culture

Croatia is full of life and Dubrovnik, in particular, is brimming with excellent festivals, bistro culture and filming for many TV shows and movies including Star Wars The Last Jedi and James Bond.

Game of Thrones Tour

King’s Landing in Game of Thrones was also filmed in this stunning city and an excellent tour of the UNESCO-listed Old Town where the filming took place is available. This tour gives an insight into the production of each scene which is extremely interesting and a lot of fun, especially for huge fans of the series.

Striking Mountains

Croatia is covered in soaring, rugged mountains which give perfect scenic views from all across the country. These spectacular views only get better from the peak, so it would be a shame to miss out on a hiking trail in Croatia. Our favourite place to experience Croatia’s striking mountains would have to be:
