Croatia

Coastline

Food

Scenery

The old towns of Zagreb, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik are full of fans, but take your time getting between them. The 1778km coastline of Croatia is lined with fantastical ancient towns, sleepy fishing villages, glitzy beaches and seafood restaurants. Off the coast, 1244 islands cater for almost anyone’s idea of idyllic; Euro-chic yacht life sails past backpacker beach party ghettos. Istria’s food and wine are decadent, and eight national parks showcase Croatia’s extraordinary scenery.
