Croatia: Your Way
For such a small country, it certainly packs a lot of excitement with many options for adventure sports in the mountains or on the sea. The more historically minded can spend time in the Old Towns of Dubrovnik and Split with their beautiful architecture, churches, marble streets, and the incredible Lovrijenac fortress. Not only can Croatia’s cities bring you back in time but they can also surprise you by their modern cosmopolitan atmospheres now.
Unlike many of its neighbouring countries, Croatia’s coast has been left largely unspoilt due to its rocky beaches. This makes private beach time here much more attainable than many other seaside countries in the area. While lounging by the water, take the opportunity to enjoy fresh oysters and mussels and pair it with a local wine. Perhaps try out their most acclaimed wines, Dingac and Postup, after a day of exploring!
