Croatia - Hidden Gem of the Adriatic
Croatia is a dream for every type of traveler: the history buff looking for old city walls, the beach goer who wants crystal clear waters, the honeymooners looking to stroll old city squares, and everyone in between. Situated on the Adriatic Sea, Croatia offers visitors beautiful weather, stunning coastlines, and enough UNESCO World Heritage Sites to fill your trip.
Visit Plitvice Lakes to see one of the natural wonders of the world, with springs, waterfalls, and crystal blue waters flowing through 16 different lakes. Visitors can walk along wooden paths to take in the peaceful beauty of this area. Cruisers may stop in port cities like Dubrovnik or Split, both with towering cathedrals, ancient city walls, and sandy beaches along the Adriatic. These cities are also full of beachfront cafes offering fresh seafood and local vegetables. Foodies will love traditional Croatian food with recipes unchanged for centuries.
Bordering five different countries in eastern Europe, Croatia is a popular destination for escorted tours. If you happen to visit Zagreb, the country's capital, don't miss the 13th-century architecture of St. Mark's Church or the nearby pedestrian streets full of colorful shops, cafes, and restaurants. For a walking tour of a thousand-year-old neighborhood, head to Gornji Grad in the middle of the city and wander through ancient squares to the Stone Gate, which is said to have magical powers.
Croatia is still a hidden gem with fewer tourists than many surrounding countries, so now's the perfect time to visit. Search and review our Croatia vacation offers to plan an exciting or relaxing getaway in eastern Europe.
