Krka National Park is known for its waterfalls, while Plitvice Lakes National Park is a popular tourist destination revered for its 16 lakes. Among others, Risnjak, Sjeverni Velebit, and Paklenica are also wonderful places to see first-hand.


A number of eventful centuries preceded the sunkissed, slow-paced Croatia many travelers know and love today. It was subjected to the rule of various barbarian tribes, Roman and Byzantine emperors, Venetian rulers, Hungarian kings, Ottoman sultans, and Habsburg monarchs. Uncover the secrets of its past in its heritage sites, between Roman amphitheaters and Byzantine basilicas to Austrian villas.



The iconic King’s Landing of Game of Thrones fame was filmed in Dubrovnik: one of Croatia’s most popular tourist destinations. Historic landmarks lie around every turn in this stunning Croatian location, like the 13th-century Dubrovnik Cathedral and 16th-century Sponza Palace. On a clear day (of which there are many), take a cable car up to Mount Srđ for brilliant birds-eye views of the city.


Split is another must-see city in Croatia with a lovely old town. It’s famous for its impressive Roman-era architecture, key examples of which are at the Diocletian’s Palace, Temple of Jupiter and Arch of Trajan. One of Split’s best attractions is Senj Harbor, which ‘harbors’ a number of colorful Croatian fishing boats, though it’s also got a fantastic culinary scene for those craving a food-focused break.


Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and delivers on history, culture, and experiences in spades. Take a trip up to the hilltop medieval castle ruins in-between visits to its various museums, galleries, and theaters. It’s also a dream to dance the night away, here: dive into the city’s electrifying nightlife, in equal balance to its strong cafe scene that’s sure to help you perk up the morning after.


Historic Trogir is located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, and is another urban area in which medieval architecture has been preserved impeccably. Among the main sites in this Dalmatian town are the Cathedral of St. Lawrence and Fortress Kamerlengo, but for those interested in outdoor activities, there are plenty of hiking and biking trails to traverse, too.


One of the most popular traditional Croatian dances is the Kolo. This circle dance is often performed at weddings and other celebrations, and involves everyone joining hands and dancing in a circle. The Moreška is also popular, which is performed usually by men. It involves two dancers crossing swords as they jump and spin around each other.
