Croatia travel guide

4.6
Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · National Parks
Once situated on the edge of empires between the Balkans and Central Europe, Croatia represents a land of great natural diversity and rich cultural heritage. Croatian cultural tourism relies on the charming juxtaposition of contrasts. Venetian palaces sit next to Napoleonic forts, Viennese mansions face Socialist Realist sculpture, and early Slavic churches built on the sites of ancient Roman settlements offer countless sightseeing opportunities. Croatia's museums present the main stages of the history of Europe. The country's sapphire seawater and long coastline speckled with islands draws visitors, as do numerous nature reserves, marinas, ancient fortified towns, and sandy and rocky beaches. In recent years, Croatia's shoreline has become a famed center for nautical tourism and naturism, and is a promising diving destination. Hikers explore outdoor landscapes of canyons, underground grottoes, dramatic waterfalls, stony peaks, and scenic lakes of the Dinaric Alps, which hug the coastline. Inland areas showcase mountain resorts, national parks, pine forests, vineyards, and spas.

Hvar Island travel guide

Lookouts · Nightlife · Islands
Island of the Sun
Hvar Island, "the queen of the Dalmatian islands," draws visitors to its beaches lapped by the crystal blue sea. Croatia's sunniest and longest island offers a mild climate, secluded pebble coves, ancient olive trees, vast lavender fields, and pine-forested hills. An important strategic and nautical point since prehistoric times, the island has been building its unique identity ever since. Experience the flavor of Hvar Island in small inns serving homemade wines, as locals sing old island songs. In contrast, the cosmopolitan Hvar offers luxurious five-star hotels, which can attract celebrities (and drive prices up). For a true Hvar experience, try private accommodations like hostels and apartments at private houses, which can service more diverse crowd. The town is crisscrossed by cobbled streets lined with Venetian palaces and offers exciting nightlife.

Beaches · Mountains · Nightlife
Often overshadowed by the region's most popular tourist attraction Zlatni Rat, Brac Island offers a window into authentic island life along the Adriatic Sea. The island's historical heritage mixes with its vital folk culture. One of the symbols of the island, the quality white stone from Brac's quarries has been used for building many important edifices since Roman times. Amidst the island's hills you'll discover villages where you can taste sheep's milk and meat products as well as homemade wines. Folk festivals featuring extreme sports competitions, concerts, and nightlife make the island's small harbors especially appealing to younger crowds. The favorable winds of Bol's beach put it on many windsurfing itineraries.
