Where to go in Croatia
List of regions
Zagreb, Croatia's capital city, is situated inland away from the more well-known regions of Dalmatia and Istria. Although not generally on the beaten track, this area still has plenty to offer visitors.
Korcula, the largest in the chain of Dalmatian islands, is an island of quiet coves and sandy beaches. With scenic drives along the southeast coastline Korcula is also one of the less touristy islands in the region.
Hvar, the sunniest place in Croatia, is easily the country's most luxurious island. Considered to be among the most beautiful islands in the world, Hvar should be on the itinerary of anyone interested in rubbing shoulders with the glitterati or discovering a fresh up-and-coming island paradise.
Brac Island's greatest attraction is Zlatni Rat beach at Bol, which juts out into the clear seas of the Adriatic; this sloping pebble expanse is one of Dalmatia's premiere bathing spots.
The Dalmatian Coast is famous as the home of one of Europe's most dramatic coastlines. Dalmatia offers an artful blend of old and new, relaxation and cultural excellence unlike any other destination in the Adriatic.
Kvarner is a region blessed with enchanting scenic contrast, shouldered on one side by the Adriatic and on the other by mountains. The lush forests of this region mark the beginning of a natural diversity, which flows eastwards down the coast into neighbouring Lika and the breathtaking Plitvice Lak…
Istria, defined by rolling hillsides and a close proximity to the Adriatic, combines a taste of the Tuscan countryside with a beautiful azure coastline. With the makings of a diverse and exciting Croatia holiday destination, this is a region that still manages to hold onto its national heritage.
The second largest city in Croatia, Split is the Capital of the Dalmatian region. Less influenced by mass tourism than many of the smaller coastal towns and cities, Split allows the visitor a glimpse into everyday Dalmatian life.
