Charming medieval towns, Roman ruins and lots of little islands with perfect beaches met by turquoise waters draw visitors time and again to Croatia. You can spend your time exploring natural wonders and national parks, or head to the main cities to wander through ancient streets and visit hilltop castles. Alternatively, flop down on one of the many beaches and listen to the sea lazily lap the shoreline. Croatia is also packed with choices for anyone with a passion for simple, hearty food rich in high-quality meat and seafood. Visitors on a trip to Croatia can fly into one of the main international airports such as Franjo Tu?man Airport in Zagreb, Dubrovnik Airport or Split Airport, which are all served by major airlines including Croatia Airlines, easyJet and Norwegian.
The vibrant capital, Zagreb, has a pedestrian-friendly historic quarter brimming with a feast of 18th and 19th century architecture, Gothic spires and medieval churches woven together by ambient cobblestone streets. The country's second largest city, Split is a romantic blend of Gothic and Renaissance architecture and boasts the splendid Diocletian's Palace, as well as a paved seafront promenade overlooking the deep blue sea, while richly atmospheric Dubrovnik is everything you might dream an old city to be, filled with historical monuments and stunning architecture. If you want to get away from it all, head to one of the country's national parks or island hop around some of the spectacular four hundred islands that are scattered along the sparkling coastline.
