Introducing Croatia

Once a secret destination of in-the-know travelers, Croatia is bursting upon the international scene. And for good reason: This small country on the shores of the Adriatic Sea has more than its share of natural wonders, beautiful coastline and picturesque islands.

Where should I go in Croatia?
Highlights of Croatia include beautiful Plitvice Lakes, the historic cities Dubrovnik and Split, and its more than a thousand islands along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast including Hvar, Korcula and many others. Whether you're into local cuisine, natural wonders, history, nightlife or active adventures, Croatia has lots to offer for travelers who seek unique experiences.

Getting around Croatia
Croatia is a relatively small country—similar in size to Switzerland—with over 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of coastline along the Adriatic Sea. Most travelers either rent a car or hire a private driver for the duration of their stay, given the roads are well-maintained and in great condition—and one-way drop-off fees are quite affordable. By sea, you have a variety of options, ranging from public ferries, private boat charters, or small-ship cruises. Keep in mind, however, that transport between the islands is quite limited during the winter months (November to April), given many services for tourists close down. Read more

Trip to croatia, Croatia - Aug 7 - Aug 13, 2019

Traveler: Natalie D. - Local specialist: Veselka Huljic

My son and I had the most amazing trip to Croatia and it was all because of the incredible planning that Veselka provided. Absolutely everything (hotels, experiences, tours and transportation) was perfect. She checked in with us regularly to ensure everything was going according to plan and she even adjusted when our flight was cancelled and we needed to change our arrival location. I simply cannot recommend Veselka enough. She exceeded all of our expectations!

Thank you Goran for the tour of Peljesac!
