Let’s start with the most well known aspect: the wonderful Croatian coast… As for the sea, Croatia has indeed, a rich natural heritage. With over a thousand islands and islets, you will be spoiled for choice. These islands each have their own character and peculiarities: arid or luxuriant, wild or lively, shady or sunny… There are, for your enjoyment, boat trips, hiking, swimming, the tasting of fresh fish and seafood. This coastal and marine heritage will make a deep impression on you! Small coves sheltered from the wind, gulfs and bays where you can cast your anchor, ports and charming villages are waiting for you… You will fall, without doubt under the spell of these coastal regions, Dalmatia and Istria. Istria, the region along the most northern coast of the country for example, holds many surprises. It consists of small towns and villages of traditional charm, dotted with vineyards.

Deep inland, Slovenia, a less known region, is hardly touristic. One goes there to appreciate the kindness of the people, the culinary specialities, the pastoral countryside landscape and to discover a rich past marred by a painful recent history… Finally, those who love old stones will be in heaven in Croatia. The country is marked by a Roman heritage in abundance. For example, Split shelters the sublime Diocletian palace. All the power of ancient Rome is reflected in the dimensions of this palace (it spreads over more than 34 683 yd2!). To conclude, Dubrovnik will no doubt be the highlight of your trip. Although highly frequented nowadays, its beauty has in no way suffered for it. Its rich history can be seen in its palaces and its architectural heritage: you will discover unique religious monuments and superb public buildings, including the rector’s palace that houses the city’s museum. The height of the visit: the medieval ramparts that encircle the city and which are perched majestically on the cliff side…
