What to do in Croatia
A new touristic destination since the end of the conflicts, the pearl of the Adriatic deserves the reputation it has for many reasons.
The capital, Zagreb, offers many attractions: The Cathedral, the Croatian Museum of Natural History, Saint Marc’s Church, the Arts Pavilion, the Mimara Museum and the beautiful mausoleums of Mirogoj Cemetery are just a few examples.
The old city of Dubrovnik, surrounded by walls, will seduce you as well: The beautiful stone used in its construction can be found in the houses, fountains, squares and palaces. You can stroll on the Placa, a promenade for pedestrians only, visit the museum of the Franciscan Monastery, admire the St. Blaise Church and relax on Lokrum Island, classified as a National Park, that you can reach by ferry.
Split also has a lovely old city which boasts wonders like Diocletian's Palace, the Archaeological Museum and the Mestrovic Gallery! Nearby, a beautiful beach is waiting for you after your cultural visits.
Korcula Island is a worthy place to visit: Vineyards, charming coves, olive groves, but also the city with its typical red roofs, making it an attractive and serene destination.
