Learn More About Croatia Tours
On a Croatia tour, you'll enjoy a variety of historic sightseeing attractions, as well as mountainous countryside and gorgeous coastal scenery. It is a country of wondrous natural beauty - from its 1,185 islands off the coast in the Adriatic Sea to its eight national parks. The most popular national park to visit on a Croatia vacation is Plitvice Lakes National Park, with a string of 16 lakes that are brilliant green and blue.
Zagreb in the north is Croatia's capital city, where you'll find the awe-inspiring neo-gothic Cathedral built inside a medieval fort; Dolac, the colorful central marketplace; and pretty Maksimir Park, one of Europe's earliest public gardens. Split, on the sunny central coast, is known for the palace that the Roman Emperor Diocletian had built in the early 4th century; the well-preserved fortress still stands today in Old Town Split.
Many Croatia tours include overnights in Dubrovnik; on the coast, it is also a port city for European cruises. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city's gleaming marble streets are lined with Baroque buildings and beautifully sculpted Renaissance fountains and facades. A chain of uninterrupted walls measuring more than 6,000 feet surrounds the city - one of the most beautiful and solid fortifications in the Mediterranean.
