Do you want to know where to go in Croatia? Here are our top ten places to visit or stuff to do in Croatia:
1. Dubrovnik Old Town Walls
Dubrovnik, Croatia's most glamorous tourist destination and a UNESCO World Heritage site, is built around the beautiful Old Town, which is surrounded by strong medieval defensive walls. Any first-time sightseeing tour of the city should begin with a walk around the city's sturdy old ramparts (the entire circuit is two kilometers long), which include fortresses, walls, and cannons along the way. You'll almost certainly reach the Old Town through the famous Pile Gate, which was built in 1537 and is one of the city's most impressive structures. From high on the walls, you can get a bird's-eye view of the Old Town rooftops and the glistening Adriatic Sea (be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring bottled water-and a selfie stick).
2. Diocletian's Palace in Split
Split, Croatia's second-largest city after Zagreb, was constructed inside the huge Diocletian's Palace's ancient Roman walls (Dioklecijanova palaca). It was built by Diocletian, the Roman Emperor who retired here in AD 305, and overlooks the Adriatic Sea. The palace has four wide gates, three of which are accessible from the land and one of which originally opened directly into the sea. It has a square plan, is more of a fortress than a palace, and once housed the Emperor's personal garrison.
3. Hvar Town
Many visitors come to Croatia to visit the breathtaking Dalmatian islands, the most well-known of which is Hvar. Hvar, a trendy city in Croatia, is home to some of the best hotels and seafood restaurants in the world. Its car-free Old Town, which dates back to Venetian rule (1420-1797), consists of a large main square dominated by a 16th-century cathedral, a nice fishing harbor, and a hilltop fortress. Hvar is a popular destination for yachters, celebrities, and visitors looking to enjoy the beaches and water sports. It is reachable by ferry from Split.
4. Plitvice Lakes National Park
Plitvice Lakes National Park (Nacionalni park Plitvicka jezera) is Croatia's most popular inland attraction, with steep forested hillsides surrounding 16 emerald-blue lakes connected by a series of thundering waterfalls. The park (the country's first national park) is interconnected by a network of footpaths and wooden bridges, and admission includes boat rides across the lakes. Due to its lush, pristine nature, the park is a refuge for wild animals such as wolves and bears (though they are shy, so you are unlikely to see them), as well as owls, eagles, and falcons. If you want to spend the night, there are several hotels on the park's outskirts. The Plitvice Lakes can be visited on bus tours that depart from Zagreb and Zadar.
5. Zagreb's Gornji Grad
The medieval Gornji Grad (Upper Town) district of Croatia's capital, Zagreb, is the main tourist attraction. The cathedral with its neo-Gothic façade, twin steeples, and treasury, which houses a large collection of religious art and artifacts; the Croatian Parliament (Hrvatski sabor); the Church of St. Mark with its famous colorful tiled roof; and the 13th-century Tower of Lotrscak, which you can climb for spectacular views of the city and surrounding region, are all popular tourist attractions in the city.
6. Sailing around Kornati National Park
The Kornati archipelago, which is 35 kilometers long and 13 kilometers wide and occupies an area of 320 square kilometers, is home to 89 small and large islets. The islets are rocky and arid, with little agricultural ground, and are mostly uninhabited, with the exception of a few very simple stone cottages scattered here and there. They were originally built as one-room shelters for local fishermen and shepherds, but are now often used as holiday retreats or seasonal seafood restaurants. Private sailing boats are the ideal way to explore this breathtakingly beautiful coastal region, with the closest charter base in Biograd Na Moru.
7. Zadar's Romanesque Churches
Zadar is an automobile-free zone. Old Town is built on a small peninsula jutting out into Croatia's Dalmatian coast. It is the country's oldest continuously inhabited city, with origins dating back to the Stone Age, and its top tourist attractions are its many fine Romanesque churches, the majority of which were built between the 9th and 13th centuries and are packed with superbly preserved religious paintings and ornate golden treasures. The 9th-century pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donatus, the 11th-century Church of St. Mary, and the 12th-century Cathedral of Anastasia and Church of St. Chrysogonus are all worth seeing.
8. Zlatni Rat Beach
The most photographed beach in Croatia has to be Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn, or Golden Cape). This rare landform, known as a "spit," is located in Bol on the south coast of Brac and runs 500 meters perpendicular to the coast. It shifts and changes form from season to season, depending on local winds and currents. It is lined with sunbeds and umbrellas in the summer and is backed by a cluster of pine trees that provide shade and overlooks the rocky heights of Vidova Gora mountain. The sea is warm enough to swim from June through September, and some people also manage to extend the bathing season through May and October.
9. The Pretty Town of Korcula
Korcula, the main settlement on the same-named island in South Dalmatia, is nestled on a tiny peninsula. Its car-free stone alleys are laid out in a herringbone pattern to provide protection from the prevailing winds and are covered by medieval walls and towers. Korcula, which is densely packed with centuries-old aristocratic stone houses, was constructed during the island's Venetian rule. The Marco Polo Building, said to be the birthplace of the famed 13th-century explorer, is one of the top points of interest, while one of the best things to do is catch a performance of the moreska sword dance, a popular dance performed for tourists just outside the town walls on summer evenings.
10. Mljet National Park
The island of Mljet's western third has been classified as a national park. It's mainly wooded, with two interconnected turquoise saltwater lakes, one of which has an islet capped by a 12th-century Benedictine monastery that you can visit by taxi-boat. The park, which is popular with nature lovers, offers a variety of activities, including exploring the various paths that pass through the woods. There's also a nine-kilometer loop that passes across the lakes' perimeter, which is great for walking or mountain biking. Swimming and other activities such as kayaking are also common in the region (kayaks can be rented to explore the lakes).
