Croatia

Croatia

In the last ten years, Croatia has really earned its place as one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. From the northern city of Pula and its Italian-influenced culture, to the beautiful and ancient city of Dubrovnik in the south, Croatia has something for everyone in its idyllic coastline, rich heritage, fascinating culture and amazing food. There are plenty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to explore for history lovers in Dubrovnik, while sun worshippers will be more than happy catching some rays on one of Split’s pristine beaches, complete with epic mountainous views. Spend your villa holiday in the sunshine exploring cobbled streets and ancient Roman ruins, devouring freshly made zagorski štrukli and swimming in azure waters.
