Dubrovnik City Break
Dubrovnik’s baroque architecture and luxurious marble streets are the first thing you’ll note when seeing the city for the first time. Easily one of the world’s most beautiful walled cities – Dubrovnik offers so much to those that travel there. We love to lounge on the picture perfect beaches, stroll the pedestrian only old town taking in the Baroque churches and striking red roof houses before resting in quaint cafes, taking in hundreds of years worth of architecture (Sponza Palace and the historic 12th century pharmacy) and eating divine dinners in the city’s astounding collection of waterside restaurants. Dusk is our favourite time in the city – when the streets become dark and dimly lit by orange tinted streetlights, and Dubrovnik’s finest take their heels out to play in what is by far one of Croatia’s most exciting nightlifes – either don your most exquisite outfit to join the throngs or take it all in from the deck of a yacht perched in the marina. This mix of old world charm, exciting nightlife and absolutely stunning beaches make Dubrovnik a superb choice for a Croatia city break.
Split & Hvar City Break
Split, along with the islands of Hvar, Brac, Vis and Solta are nestled in the region of Dalmatia, amidst the pristine beauty of the Adriatic Sea. This region of Croatia is known for its natural aesthetic beauty – secluded white sand beaches, rugged coastlines and island coves, all of which contrast wonderfully with modern marinas, charming old towns and a vibrant nightlife that has made Split and its neighbouring islands one of the most popular choices for luxury holidays and city breaks to Croatia.
Zagreb & Plitvice City Break
Zagreb has everything that one would expect from a European capital city – from culture, arts and music through to (beautiful Austro-Hungarian) architecture, impressive gastronomy and a thriving nightlife scene. The city is indeed quite small when compared to other capitals throughout Europe, though it’s packed with so much to do that one would never notice.
On the flip side – the nearby Plitvice national park – Croatia’s lake district – is a natural wonderland of enchanting lakes that cascade unto one another via a series of waterfalls that emerge from cracks in eroded rocks and from beneath thick vegetation – creating a landscape that wouldn’t be out of place in the deepest lakes of China or Vietnam.
Istria City Break
The beautiful coastal resorts of the Istrian Peninsula are among Croatia’s most treasured jewels – with pristine white sand beaches and glittering blue waters that are ideal for those interested in yachting. Istria is also the best base from which to explore the Kvarner Gulf – taking in a splendid collection of towns, islands and resorts – from lush interior wilds dotted with hilltop villages and quaint converted farmhouse hotels to a verdant coastline which, though intensely busy in the summer is simply divine and one of the best ways to spend a long weekend city break in Croatia
