Day 2 – Croatia Nature Experience: National Park Plitvice Lakes (UNESCO)

After breakfast, you check-out and start your journey to Croatia’s most famous National Park. Hidden in the forest, you’ll discover 16 lakes connected with small cascades and waterfalls. Before arriving at the National Park you will have a photo stop in the rather unknown continental town of Karlovac. The town “where four rivers come together” was the frontline during the Yugoslav War. Here they built a War Museum with Vehicles and War Machines that were used during the “War of Independence” as the Croatians call it. In the afternoon/evening, you check-in and have the evening to yourself.

  • Overnight in 3* or 4* hotel with breakfast in Plitvice area
  • Entrance fee to National Park
  • Free time in the Plitvice Lakes

 

Day 3 – Listen to the world-famous Sea Organ and stroll through Adriatic stone alleys

After breakfast, you move on from the Plitvice Lakes to the Adriatic Coast. Zadar is an old Venetian fortress that has a fine preserved old town. The most famous attraction is the Sea Organ. Have you ever listen to the waves? The Croatian architect Nikola Bašić invented a system of tubes positioned under white marble steps that allow the sea water to enter the tubes. With the movement of the water pushing air through the tubes, you can hear mesmerizing sounds that enchant visitors from all over the world. It seems that those sounds have a magical effect on the listener. In Zadar, there are some great places to have lunch. Afterward, your journey takes you to Šibenik. Here, you can visit the Cathedral of St. James (UNESCO), stroll around in the charming old town, and enjoy the feeling of the Mediterranean.

Day 4 – Walk inside a Roman Palace

The Dalmatian coast is not only popular among tourists but also among native Croatians. It seems that the region of Dalmatia has been a little luckier than the other regions in Croatia. It is blessed with a gorgeous coastline and beautiful Islands. On your way to Split, you will have a stop in Trogir. This town is so small and picturesque, just perfect for catching some views of a variety of architectural styles within such a small area. Romanesque, Baroque, Renaissance – Trogir has them all! Get a scoop of fine Croatian Gelato and take a walk through the town. You will not be disappointed. Not far away from Trogir, a Roman emperor decided to build his “retirement home” right at the sea. It was mighty emperor Diocletian who built a huge palace facing the waterfront. Today, this palace represents the entire old town of Split. Just walking through the palace is an experience for itself. Fantastic artisan shops, modern Cafes, and Restaurants do not let down any Foodie or Art Lover. Diocletian built himself a Mausoleum within the palace which is today the Cathedral of Split (St. Domnius). The whole palace is full of hidden entrances, ancient corners, sudden turns, and unexpected alleys. Use your day to explore this unique Dalmatian town. Ask your driver where to eat or have a good cocktail.

Places you’ll visit today:  Trogir, Split

Included today:

  • Overnight in 3* or 4* hotel with breakfast in Split area
  • Free time in Trogir
  • Free time in Split

 

Day 5 – The Walls of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is probably the best-known destination in Croatia. Some people even think Croatia is situated in Dubrovnik! Haha!

Anyway, the city walls of Dubrovnik are one of the greatest defense systems Europe has ever seen. Not only scenes from Star Wars and Game of Thrones were shot here but also great historical battles were fought on the shores of Dubrovnik’s seafront. Before arriving in Dubrovnik, you’ll have a photo stop in Ston. A small town located on the  Pelješac peninsula that was home to a surprisingly great wall and ancient salt basins. Afterward, enjoy a full afternoon in the old town of Dubrovnik (UNESCO) and take a walk along the mighty city walls. In the evening you can watch the sunset from a bar located just at the rocks in front of the Adriatic Sea. Your driver knows where the good places are.

  • Overnight in 3* or 4* hotel with breakfast in Dubrovnik area
