5 Reasons to do a Dubrovnik and Split Twin-Centre Holiday
Croatia twin-centre holidays are a perfect way to discover the very best of Croatia whilst indulging in the country’s most provocative of contrasts. With a two-centre holiday to Croatia it’s possible to mix your experiences to include visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, taking day trips along the super chic Adriatic coastline, wine tasting in centuries-old wineries and hiking, cycling or quad biking through lush national parks.
Read on for 5 (perfect) reasons to do a Dubrovnik and Split twin-centre Holiday with Unforgettable Croatia.
Explore Historic UNESCO Sites
Croatia has an impressive collection of UNESCO sites to explore – from the awe-inspiring walled city of Dubrovnik, with its stunning collection of historic architecture – including the near 800 year old Arboretum Trsteno, to the cavernous Diocletian’s Palace – which was built by the Roman emperor Diocletian in 4AD, and now acts as a large cosmopolitan chunk of the old city of Split.
Visit The Island of Hvar
Hvar has been a popular stop for yachts for a while now, but its charms are starting to capture the hearts of travellers the world over. The island is wrapped in the sublime blue tones of the Adriatic, fringed with beautiful beaches and dressed in fields of lavender, rocky hills and stunning villages, while the island’s namesake town – Hvar – is a maze of cobbled streets and regal villas that come to an end at the gorgeous harbour that looks out onto a flotilla of yachts in the summer months. From here it’s possible to explore the jewel-like Pakleni Islands and indulge in every activity imaginable – from wine tasting and fine dining to yachting and sunbathing on some of Europe’s finest pebbly beaches.
Day Trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik
Imagine Croatia’s coastline entangled with Switzerland’s mountain peaks – it’s villages combined with the flare of the French Riviera and you’ll be somewhere close to what awaits you in Montenegro. From breathtaking Kotor Bay bejewelled with pretty coastal villages and cruise ships lingering throughout the day, to stunning fortresses, Orthodox churches and no less than 100KM of picture-perfect coastline. Montenegro is perfect for a day (or more) trip during your multi-centre Croatia holidays.
Visit KRKA National Park & Sibenik
Sibenik is often overlooked but with its stunning medieval streets that are laden with surprisingly rich architectural gems all perched on the very edge of the Adriatic, we believe that it’s a great stop on a Croatia two-centre holiday. Of course if you need a little more persuasion, then there is nothing better than the otherworldly Krka National Park that sits close by. The Krka National Park is a protected haven of forests and heavenly waterfalls that form lakes and pools that are besieged by lush flora and inhabited by a distinct collection of wildlife – which includes no less than 4 endangered species – the greater horseshoe bat, wolfs, otters and wild cats.
Wine Tasting on Peljesac
Vineyards stretch from the village of Ston in the south of Peljesac, where the land is green and hilly, all the way to the outskirts of the northern coastal town of Orebić – where rocky mountains slide down to the Pelješac peninsula, which in turn drips into the stunning turquoise of the Adriatic. Both white and red wines are cultivated here – but it’s the Plavac mali reds that the peninsula is famous for. The reds are deep in colour, with fruity flavours and a pretty high alcohol level that often touches into 15% and you can sample them all over the region – from larger wineries such as Saints Hills in Zagruda to the smaller family run wineries in villages like Potomje.
