Historic attractions in Croatia
Step back in time to explore Croatia’s rich history, from Roman columns to Venetian palaces and medieval old towns.
- Limestone mountains, the Adriatic and famous city walls frame one of the world’s best- preserved medieval cities. Dubrovnik Old Town is a treasure chest of monasteries, palaces, fountains and churches.
- Built in the 4th century, the majestic Palazzo di Diocleziano rests at the heart of Split. The complex of Roman structures is scattered throughout the streets.
- The Old Town of Trogir is located on a tiny island that’s accessible from the mainland via a bridge. Stroll along the seaside promenade and explore Renaissance and Romanesque buildings.
- Amphitheatre de Pula was built in the 1st century AD and once hosted gladiatorial contests. It’s still home to entertainment, with a schedule of opera, ballet and sports throughout the year.
- Zagreb’s shopping, dining and nightlife hub is Tkalciceva Street. Once upon a time, it was Europe’s first red light district. Now, it’s an energetic strip of boutiques, restaurants, bars and events.
Traditional cuisine in Croatia
Foreign influences and a variety of regions combine to create traditional taste sensations in Croatia.
- Made with cuttlefish or squid, squid ink, garlic, red wine and olive oil, black risotto is one of the most popular dishes to enjoy along the Croatian coastline.
- The country’s famous cheese, Pag, is the centrepiece for classic appetisers. It’s typically served with cured ham and black olives.
- Fresh from the Adriatic, octopus salad is a refreshing option for hot summer days. The boiled octopus is usually combined with tomatoes, onions, parsley, olive oil and lemon.
- The forests of Istria are a truffle hunter’s joy. You’ll find them with steak or pasta dishes. Better yet, they’re a lot cheaper than their Italian counterparts.
- You can eat dessert all day in Croatia. For breakfast, try warm salenjaci sprinkled with sugar. In the heat of midday, cool down with the cold cream topping on the pudding, rozata. Chocolaty Skradin cake is a must for formal occasions.
