This is Croatia's most famous sailing area for first-time travellers departing from Split or Dubrovnik. A tour around the picturesque Croatian cites and islands scattered across the Adriatic Sea can be the perfect way to explore the Dalmatian coast. With ancient settlements, secluded beaches, and hidden coves, southern Dalmatia is sometimes referred to as true nautical heaven. It's also the best place to go for nightlife and a diverse range of local restaurants.
You will be spending a week exploring islands such as Vis, Hvar, Korcula and Brac. These islands are at a distance of half-day sail from each other. Dalmatian coast can be recommended for people of all ages. Young people are attracted more towards this place because of its rocking nightlife.
Istria is located along the northern coast of Croatia. In the Adriatic Sea, it is the largest peninsula. It is highly influenced by Italian cuisine, culture and language as Istria was formerly a part of Italy. Coastal towns such as Pula, Porec and Rovinj are popular tourist destinations. These towns can get very crowded during the summers. However, if you travel inland from Istria, you can find amazing towns and villages that very few people visit.
Istria gives you one of the most authentic Croatia experiences to do with its remote beauty and local culture. It may lack a nightlife and wide range of hotels, but if you are a nature lover, then this is your paradise. Here in Istria, you get a chance to visit small, pretty towns where you can eat fresh meals straight out of farms.
There are great fun activities here like wine tasting and cycling through Istria to explore the inland county. Istria is excellent for couples who love nature.
Enjoy a Picnic on Lokrum
The island of Lokrum is just another world experience. It is just a 15-minute ferry ride starting from Dubrovnik port. Lokrum has no access to cars which makes it very peaceful and quiet and is best enjoyed in July. The island of Lokrum is less than a mile wide, being one the smallest islands of Croatia.
You can spend one afternoon exploring the whole place. You can roam around the old monastery located there and adore their local wildlife. You can have a romantic dinner at the spots that are along the rocky shore.
Before you depart, stop by Gundulićeva Poljana, the Old Town fruit and vegetable market, to fill up your picnic basket.
Discover the Amazing Waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park
Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia's largest national park with nearly 30,000 hectares, is located in the Dinarides' lower elevations in its central region. The spectacular Plitvice lake system stands out in a breathtaking karst landscape dominated by a combination of forests and meadows, enthralling scientists and tourists alike.
The lakes are divided into upper and lower lakes, which are linked by numerous waterfalls and watercourses above and below level. The former ones are formed on dolomites and have mild relief, not so steep shores, and are surrounded by dense forests. While the latter are smaller and shallower and are located in a canyon made of limestone with partially steep shores.
The overall lake system's size and the natural barriers are an outstanding representation of the aesthetically stunning phenomenon that has been recognised since the late 1800s. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is mainly covered by well-preserved forests that are essential for the continuity of geochemical processes in the water system (above and below ground), including an 84-hectare old-growth beech and fir forest.
The park is home to exceptional biodiversity and striking landscape beauty and systems that continue to form the lakes. The tufa barriers themselves provide shelter for a wide range of highly specialised non-vascular plant species
The woods are home to Brown Bear, Grey Wolf, and Lynx, as well as several endangered species, and the meadows are famous for their rich flora.
