Inhabited since prehistoric times, the Republic of Croatia offers a variety of tourist destinations. The country boasts immense history, eye-catching architecture, and a love of nature—the perfect recipe for relaxing luxury vacations.
Perhaps its most prominent attraction is the old city of Dubrovnik off the southern tip of the country. Dubbed the Pearl of the Adriatic, the city was established during the seventh century on maritime trade. Aside from the beaches that line the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik abounds in visual feasts: defensive walls, cobblestone streets, grand palaces and old churches that earn the awe of all that visit.
In addition to Dubrovnik, many towns in Croatia have lush greenery, lovely shores, and picturesque structures in different architectural styles—the perfect setting for relaxing luxury vacations. Just some of these include Hvar Town, Split, the three-thousand-year-old city of Zadar, Pula with its famous amphitheater, and Korcula, the alleged birthplace of the merchant traveler Marco Polo.
With its mix of continental and Mediterranean climate, along with more than a thousand islands, Croatia also offers a long list of natural attractions to tourists and adventurers. The country is said to have the richest biodiversity in Europe. Among the most popular eco-destinations are the island of Milet off the coast of Southern Croatia, the spectacular scenery in Krka National Park in Central Dalmatia, and Plitvice National Park, which is said to be one of the most beautiful natural wonders in all of Europe.
Exploring Croatian food offers visitors a delectable adventure, with traditional cuisines varying from one region to another. Seafood and pasta lovers can look forward to a feast during their holiday: freshwater fish and vegetable dishes are predominantly featured in many dishes. Many recipes also require an abundance of olive oil and garlic.
