Explore Croatia

Croatia is a country that people revisit time and time again. Whilst for many decades it has been, and remains a popular holiday destination for Europeans, it was relatively unexplored by most New Zealand holidaymakers until recently.

It is Croatia’s pristine coastline with clear water lapping into pretty pebble beaches and secluded coves and its 1,185 islands scattered along a 1,777 km coastline that make it a perfect place for sailing and enjoying the quality of the sea and air of the Adriatic.

The Adriatic Coast naturally draws travellers the world over and the reasons for going are very individual. Some are lured by the eternal lights of the Dalmatian cities against the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea and some by the opportunity to meet new people and have new experiences.

But there is so much more to Croatia than the spectacular sea view – it is a true land of diversity offering culture buffs to walk the well trodden paths in search of master artworks while surrounded by grand architecture and threads frozen in time. Regional cuisine can satisfy every foodie passionately hunting for the ultimate in palate pleasure and then the great finds for the shopaholics who are in a category all of their own.

It could also be the abounds of history in Croatia with its well-preserved fortified towns encompassing centuries old buildings, its cities, parks, islands and lakes that UNESCO World Heritage has listed under protection, it’s narrow stone streets opening on to bustling squares dotted with popular restaurants that make it a popular choice to visit when planning a trip to Europe. Venture further and you will find groves of olives and fruit, vineyards, lavender fields, and small villages with red tile roofs. Mountains, lakes, rivers and forests all add to its charm. It is all the flavours of the Mediterranean atmosphere – the way it was, that invites one to spend and dabble time in.

This hot destination offers numerous possibilities to its visitors to discover its hidden treasures while sampling the Croatian way of life. A mosaic of fascinating cultures is evident in vibrant towns and scenic landscapes unfold as you travel through the country steeped in history and natural beauty.
