Where to go and what to do in Croatia.
Croatia is one of the most diverse, inviting, and stunning countries that Europe has to offer. Sitting in Balkans in the southeast of the continent, Croatia is a country of rocky coastlines, pristine beaches, ancient cities, glistening lakes, and untouched nature with vibrant cultural hubs sprinkled in throughout.
But where should you go on your trip to Croatia? The following is a guide of some of the country’s top destinations to get you started.
Split is the second-biggest city in Croatia and sits on a peninsula in the south of the country on the Adriatic Sea. Often dubbed the “Mediterranean Flower” by proud locals and enamored visitors, Split is a city of orange roofs, ancient stone buildings, and winding lanes. When in Split be sure to appreciate the wide array of different architectural styles, ranging from Roman to Gothic to Renaissance that’s anchored by Diocletian’s Palace, a beautiful Roman complex that is over 1,700 years old. Then walk down to the Riva waterfront and sip some wine at the seaside cafes as you watch the sunset. Outside of the city, enjoy hiking up at Marjan hill, which is as big as Central Park, for an outstanding view of the Adriatic Sea, and walking along the sands and admiring the crystal clear waters at Bacvice beach.
Split is also an excellent jumping off point for visiting many of Croatia’s islands, such as Hvar. To get from Split to Hvar, just take the ferry, which costs a mere $19 and takes four hours.
