Highlights


  • Zagreb

    The capital of Croatia, often called a City of Museums is a must for all history lovers. With plenty of places that need to be discovered, like the ‘Upper Town’, cobbled streets lit by gas lamps, cafes and restaurant serving up some delicious Croatian fare, Zagreb is definitely a must visit. From Zagreb you can plan to visit Varaždin for a day trip. 90 kms away, this Baroque town is home to one of the largest music festivals in Croatia. Head to the city center and start your exploration from here. You can also visit the Plitvice Lakes National Park, about a 2 hour bus ride from Zagreb. A perfect site for a hike, this park contains 16 terraced lakes, that flow into each other through a series of waterfalls. A full fledged hike takes about 6 hours, but there are options to take boats within the park if you aren’t up for a long hike.

  • Dubrovnik

    Termed as “Pearl of the Adriatic” this town is on the southern end of the Dalmatian Coast. To get a feel of this place, you can start off early, by taking a walk on the well preserved walls of the Old Town. Dubrovnik, with its Baroque architecture, is the site for many of the locations used in Game of Thrones TV series. Many of the major sights of Dubrovnik get covered as part of the GoT tours that last for upto 3 hours. A cable car ride up to Mount Srđ will give you breathtaking views of the town and the coast. You can access many islands from this town by boat, like Lokrum, The Elaphiti Islands and Mljet

  • Dalmatian Coast

    Dalmatian coast at the southern most end of Croatia’s coastline, is replete with limestone cliffs and secluded beaches. The perfect setting water sports and other outdoor activities. Some beautiful islands off the coast like Hvar and Korčula can be accessed from here. A stop-over at Split, Croatia’s 2nd largest city, is a good idea. Dating back to the 4th century, Diocletian’s Palace, constructed by the Romans is worth a visit (it is one of the sites used in the Game of Thrones TV series). With its narrow cobbled alleys, cute boutiques and remnants of early construction, Split, is charming…to say the least! Stroll on the promenade, rest your feet at a café as you watch people walk by. You can also visit Brela, a town with a beach that cant be ignored. Another stop on the coastline can be at Zadar, a quintessential seaside town, a perfect blend of historical and modern, with beautiful sunsets that can’t be missed.

  • Istria

    A popular destination with tourists, this region was Italian almost upto the 20th century! A region filled with resort towns, you will be spoilt for choice! Umag and Porec are considered to the best of the resort towns. If you wish to get your dose of Roman architecture, with its Roman amphitheatre and other historical sights, a visit to Pula is called for. Rovinj, is an active fishing town, pretty and almost Italian! Shaped like an egg, as it was originally an island, the Old Town will charm you the moment you set foot here.

  • Game of Thrones Tour

    While majority of the shooting for Game of Thrones has been done in Northern Ireland, there are still some important location in Croatia that were used in the making of this TV series. Sign up for a Game of Thrones tour and visit sites like Diocletian’s Palace and Klis Fortress in Split amongst many others. Depending on how much time you have on hand and how big a fan of GoT you are, you can choose how long a tour you’d like to be on – ranging from a day trip to a 5 day trip.
