HVAR This Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea has witnessed a huge surge in tourism in recent years, and with good reason. The entire place looks like a Game of Thrones set, and the island boasts some of the best food on the Dalmatian coast. Hi, fresh lobster and Zinfandel wines.
We’ve made no secret of our love for Croatia. From top to bottom, from the interior to the coast, there hasn’t been a place we have visited that we didn’t fall in love with. We’ve been captivated by the dramatic coastline dotted with islands, by the thundering waterfalls in the national parks, by the charming historic towns and buzzing cities, by the traditional cuisine and local wine and, of course, by the kind and generous people.
Absolute-must-do things to do in Croatia I get asked this same question all the time, what should we do while on holidays in Croatia? There are a dozens of ways to experience the magic of Croatia. Meander the warren of cobbled streets in cities centuries old, discovering UNESCO sites as you go. Spend a day or maybe weeks mesmerised by the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea as you sail Croatia’s 1,000 islands or maybe you’d like to hike, cycle or raft along one of 8 stunning national parks?
