Vast seascapes of stunning azure meld with antique red-roofed towns and blend into dreamy orange-tinged sunsets that set the sky alight each and every evening. Yachts bob in the harbour of Dubrovnik, tables topped with glasses of Croatian wine spill out to the courtyards of the Diocletian’s Palace in Split, and stunning white pebbly beaches sculpt heavenly retreats in the sea on all 4 corners of Hvar. How could you possibly resist any of them?
Keep reading for 5 reasons why Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik are the perfect destinations for a Croatia multi-centre holiday.
Explore Croatia’s UNESCO Heritage
All 3 destinations boast a UNESCO world heritage site. In Split it’s the architectural masterpiece that is the Diocletian’s Palace – with its maze-like network of streets carved from the former Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian, while Dubrovnik’s entire old town is a UNESCO-listed antique – formed of beautiful palatial architecture, iconic red roofs and gorgeous marble streets, The lesser known of the 3 is Hvar’s Stari Grad Plain which is an ancient Greek agricultural landscape that still produces olives and grapes in exactly the same fashion as it has for more than 2,000 years.
Soak Up Island Life
Croatia offers everything you’d ever want from an island adventure. Split has some great beaches but also the bars and parties for those that want them, while Hvar has a more explorable landscape with plenty of hidden coves, sleepy fishing villages and luscious beaches. Taking a multi-centre holiday to either of these puts you in a superb position to indulge in the island life – whether that be sunning yourself offshore on a yacht, shopping (or fishing) for local seafood on the market or simply exploring at an indulgent and relaxed pace.
