Croatia really is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Many of her most beautiful areas are protected as national parks. The small island of Mljet is a fine example, with its picturesque saltwater lakes home to a Benedictine monastery set on a charming island, surrounded by forests. The largest of Croatia’s National Parks is the Plitvice Lakes National Park in the very heart of Croatia, in the region which connects the Adriatic coastal region with the area inland. There are three islands on the lake where visitors can enjoy walking amongst the pristine natural beauty, savouring the serene setting. Waterfalls cascade into the crystalclear waters with a canyon and even a cave to explore. It is the perfect spot to unwind and escape from the pressures of modern life. As you walk through the National Park you may really feel that you have discovered heaven on earth.
Croatia has been conquered by many civilisations from the Romans to the Venetians, and from the Austro-Hungarian Empire to the Ottoman Empire. Each has left its mark in the form of a treasure trove of architectural glories. Diocletian’s splendid palace in Split was the largest private residence in the ancient world, and is still awe-inspiring today. The medieval island town of Trogir, and the picturesque old walled city of Dubrovnik are two of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
Over 1.100 Islands
The islands are a popular draw for couples beach holidays although all types of travellers will find something to enjoy on the many islands along the Dalmatian coast. Many of the islands retain a distinctly Venetian character, especially the beautiful town of Hvar, with its piazzas and grand Venetian Gothic architecture with ornate balconies and spires. Island of Korcula is home to the famous explorer, Marco Polo, who can lay claim to having been the first travel writer, Korcula is certainly a place to inspire. It is undoubtedly one of the best-preserved Medieval and Renaissance towns in the Mediterranean. Others are natural havens, such as the island of Mljet, home to the wild mongoose, with its pine forests and azure saltwater lakes. Life on the islands - with the possible exception of sophisticated Hvar - is for the most part full of simple pleasures. Swimming from rocky coves and pebble beaches in the clear waters of the Adriatic, enjoying the warm and sunny climate, getting away from the crowds, and delighting in simple meals of grilled fish and barbecued meat or trying the local speciality of black seafood risotto.
Island Hopping in Croatia, Multi Centre Croatia Holidays
For those who want to make the most of their time away, island hopping in Croatia or a multi centre holiday is the perfect option. Diamond Star's flexible multi-centre holidays and island hopping allow you to combine a stay in the coastal cities of Dubrovnik or Split with a stay on choice of Adriatic islands, allowing you to have the best of both worlds.
The islands are relatively well connected so island hopping in Croatia is a pleasurable experience. Both the mainland and islands are well connected with each other so it is easy to combine a stay in Dubrovnik or Split with a visit to one or two of the islands, or to take in a number of the islands on an island-hopping boat tour or tailor-made holiday. You can even combine a visit to Dubrovnik with a stay in one of the Montenegrin resorts of Budva or Kotor.
