When it comes to Croatia, there really is no shortage of great things to see during your visit. Here are our recommendations of places you need to add to your itinerary:
Split is the second largest city in Croatia, well-known for its beautiful beaches and great historical Roman ruins. This is a great place for history buffs to visit as there is quite a bit of magnificent architecture to explore. Go see Diocletian’s Palace, the Krka Waterfalls, or the National Park. This is also where the movie Mama Mia was filmed! The lively environment is perfect for vacationers looking for something fun, adventurous, and exciting.
This quaint little village can be found on the island of Brac. With a population of 883 people, this cute little town stays authentic to its Mediterranean fishing village vibe and is the liveliest spot in all of Croatia. It is definitely worth the visit, so even if you’ve only got a few hours, come here to sample some great wines, visit the local vineyards, and have some gelato as you wander along the beautiful marina and take in the charm of the village.
If you are looking for a beachside party scene, this is the place to be. This quiet little old town has something for everyone; whether you want pine forests or a party, this little island will accommodate any lifestyle. There are also many beautiful cathedrals and eye-catching buildings to see while here. Party-goers will want to check out Hula Hula Beach Club; it’s a great place to eat some seafood platters with cocktails during the day. By night, it is an exciting dance club with professional DJs.
If you’re looking for a classier establishment, go to Carpe Diem. You can find celebrities here since it is an exclusive island that requires a boat. If you’re seeking thrills, there are many watersports that take place right there. You can try jet-skiing, tubing, paddle boarding, speedboating, and much more. Take in the beauty of the glistening ocean. This is a great way to get a nice view of the islands, but if you are looking for stunning views, you should climb up the hill in Hvar. There, you will find the town’s majestic fortress, from which you can get a magnificent view of the whole town.
This island features a glorious old town. If you want a view of the whole town and more, you will want to walk up to the top of the bell tower.
