Highlights

Dubrovnik's charms reach far beyond the famed beautiful city walls. Explore the undisputed jewel of the Dalmatian Coast, and maybe cruise to Lokrum Island where a botanical garden, Benedictine monastery, and excellent swimming spots await

A highlight for many travellers, Hvar Island seems to have it all: Renaissance architecture, beautiful beaches, lush green landscapes and excellent Dalmatian cuisine

Korcula Island is a quiet escape full of vineyards, olive groves and tranquil coves – indulge in local island food and drink specialties during a feast in a sleepy village

Be blown away by Zadar and its extensive Roman ruins, medieval city walls and the modern sea organ and sun dial

Embark on a day trip to famous Plitvice National Park, and be awed by the colours of the lakes and waterfalls

Explore ancient Split, where tradition, modernity and a variety of European influences come together. A visit to the Diocletian’s Palace reveals some of the Adriatic Coast’s most important surviving Roman buildings

The Slovenian town of Bled is a joy to explore. An active paradise, the beautiful town lies on a stunning lake at the edge of the Julian Alps and its island church appears to have come straight out of a fairytale
