Croatia’s compelling mix of tradition and glamour makes it one of Europe’s ‘must visit’ destinations. Here you will find glorious beaches and great weather, plus historical treasures, wonderful architecture and folk traditions, still observed, which stretch back for centuries.

Despite its relatively new position as a holiday hotspot, Croatia is not overrun by tourists. Whilst modernity has taken a hold in most places, there is still a sense of cultural authenticity in many regions and there’s plenty to uncover off the beaten track. A diverse and ever changing country, Croatia still offers excellent value for money for those looking for a bargain, conversely, it now boasts several luxury resorts attracting the rich (and occasionally famous). The days of the civil war seem far removed - the way that the country has recovered so fast acts as a testament to the strength and spirit of the Croatian people - who are as friendly and welcoming as anyone you will meet  nywhere in the world.

Many people head to the coast, where glamour and character is on offer in resorts such as Hvar and Dubrovnik, plus a cool nightlife and a great yacht scene. For those seeking a more relaxing, secluded holiday, there are plenty of options - from pretty seaside villages, hidden coves or even a private island. Popular with families because of the award winning beaches and safe swimming, you will also find a variety of activities on offer suitable for all age groups.

While the coast is the most popular area of the country, inland Croatia should certainly not be forgotten. The landscape is stunning and varied, and the perfect location to indulge in some of high octane sports - such as paragliding or white water rafting. Zagred may not be as well-known as Vienna, yet this small but perfectly formed capital teems with life, with a buzzing street cafe scene, plenty of ancient sites to visit, a fabulous new museum and a frenetic calendar of events and festivals. 

Croatia is slowly becoming synonymous with fine dining. Its culinary assets are its fresh, local ingredients that are prepared in styles ranging from comforting home cooking to top end. Many of the finest restaurants require forward planning to visit - both to book and to navigate there - but the results are well worth it. Croatia also has several flourishing vineyards producing great wines, and the combination of fine local wine and food is a heady one.
