Those lakes. The ones that look so stunning in photos you don’t believe they’re real. They’re in Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia and we can take you there so you can believe your eyes. We also recommend a stay on Croatia’s island speckled coastline, where terracotta rooftops preside over pebbly beaches and a navy-blue ocean. It would be easy to while away an entire week or two just on the coast, island hopping on a luxury yacht or taking the ferries between beautiful beaches. But on the mainland, there’s a wealth of history and natural wonder to discover, too.
National parks home to free-flowing waterfalls, quaint hilltop towns surrounded by picture-perfect vineyards, and thrilling cities with wild nightlife. Croatia is especially fascinating for history (and Game of Thrones fans), with old walled cities, Venetian palaces and even Roman ruins waiting for you to explore.
"If festivals are your bag, Croatia has parties aplenty. International DJs and musicians come to Croatia every summer to entertain. The best are along the coast in cities like Split or the town of Tisno, where boat parties go on long into the night."
"Food and wine in Croatia are a real treat. Dry whites made from Malvazija grapes and rich Dalmatian reds made with the Babić variety pair beautifully with the country’s seafood specialities. "
