is the most popular tourist destination in the country. The city’s Old Town surrounded by a thick defensive wall is packed with towers, palaces, and churches. You can visit the city’s Church of St. Blaise, Rector’s Palace, and the Stradun – a pedestrian passageway lined with shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. It is no wonder that Dubrovnik is listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
Split is Croatia’s second-largest city next to Zagreb. It is also called the “Mediterranean Flower”. What made this city famous for are its elegant Gothic and Renaissance Architecture with Diocletian’s Palace as the crown jewel of the city’s architecture. Apart from the palace and the old town, tourists can enjoy swimming at Bacvice beach or even simply walking along the seaside promenade.
Istria is a heart-shaped peninsula in the northwest portion of Croatia. This region has a lot to offer to its visitors. The town of Rovinj offers a pure seaside bliss and Venetian architecture. You can walk around its magnificent cobbled alleys of its old town or just enjoy the sun on Rovinj beach.
Another gorgeous town in the Istria region worth visiting is Motuvon where you can visit its well-preserved monuments and churches and its landscapes which are kind of similar to Tuscany
. To experience more of the view of the landscape, try paragliding. Lastly, you might not want to miss visiting one of the oldest surviving Roman Amphitheaters located in Pula which is a must-see.
Often called “Croatia’s best-kept secret”, this bay in the country is popular to visitors especially from neighboring countries like Austria. Two of its largest islands, Kirk and Cres are Croatia’s largest overall. Another island, the island of Rab is popular because of its 22 sandy bays.
The Plitvice Lakes area is a natural beauty located in Croatia. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is composed of woodlands, waterfalls, and sixteen different lakes. There are hiking trails around this park where you can walk around from 2-8 hours.
The last but not the least is the country’s capital city, Zagreb. The city has also much to offer just like Dubrovnik and Split.
