Croatia

Ancient walled cities, a glittering coastline and a fascinating historic heritage, Croatia is a sparkling gem on the Adriatic.

An exciting blend of historic architecture, coastline and sophisticated cities, Croatia is a treasure trove of tradition infused with luxury and glamour.

The sparkling azure waters of the Adriatic gently lap against picturesque rocky coves, while bustling fishing villages are hives of activity. Indulge in a lazy lunch of the freshest seafood and locally produced wines in Dubrovnik, or enjoy the warm Mediterranean climate as you stroll along the seafront promenade in Split.

Boasting over 1,000 islands and 6,000km of pristine coastline, much of Croatia is still left untouched. From tiny, unpopulated islands to the cosmopolitan island of Hvar, Croatia’s coastline is waiting to be explored.
