Zagreb – Plitvice Lakes – Split

Leave Zagreb and start your journey to the south of Croatia. But, before, make a stop at the most beautiful place in the country: Plitvice Lakes National Park. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is a place of unique natural beauty. There are 16 larger lakes and several smaller lakes. The lakes are all interconnected as if they were a ladder – they are cascading one into the other over a number of beautiful waterfalls.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park covers the area of around 300 km2. And it is home to more than 250 animal species and more than 1,400 plant species. You have to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. After making a stop at the National Park, continue your trip towards Split, in Dalmatia.

Split – Ston – Dubrovnik

Split is definitely one of the most interesting cities in Croatia. And the Diocletian’s Palace, by the sea, is the main attraction of the town. Built in the 5th century BC the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, is one of the best preserved in Europe. It is difficult to believe that many people still live in inside this piece of history. The palace is on Riva, the seaside promenade of the city. Very close to the port, from where lots of ferries, catamarans, and cruises arrive and depart every day. And also close to the bus station.

After leaving Split, start travel towards Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic. But, before getting there. Make a strategic stop in Ston and Mali Ston. The region is famous for its oysters and fresh seafood. Check it out more information about Split, here. 

 

Dubrovnik

Welcome to Dubrovnik! The most stunning Walled city you will ever visit! The Pearl of the Adriatic is located on the coast of Dalmatia, in Croatia. The medieval city lays right on the edge of the Adriatic Sea. The walls date back to the 16th century and are among the best preserved in the world. The entrance to the walled city is free and the best way to visit it is to get lost inside.

There are two main gates in the city: Pile and Ploče. Entering into Pile you will be at the beginning of Stradun, the city’s “boardwalk”. To the left is the Franciscan Church with the bell tower and the Monastery. The whole complex is formed by a monastery, a church, a library, and a pharmacy. The library of the Franciscan monastery has 30.000 volumes and 1.500 valuable manuscript documents. More about Dubrovnik, here.
