Croatia holidays in 2020
Croatia is a small but mighty country in Central Europe, where the sunny Adriatic coast and vibrant cities are all part of the same package.
Forming a natural crossroads between Mediterranean and Balkan cultures, Croats have neatly incorporated these influences alongside their own strong national identity.
What type of holiday does Croatia offer?
Thanks to its stunning natural beauty and ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Croatia is an explorer’s paradise.
Dubrovnik is a stunning city, surrounded by awe-inspiring views, with 16th century walls that encircle the old town. There’s no wonder it was chosen as a prominent filming location for Game of Thrones.
A huge part of Croatia’s appeal lies in the 1,185 islands that make up the country. Must visit stops are Mljet and its National Park, Split if you want to immerse yourself in Croatian culture, and Korčula for the vast vineyards and taste-bud tingling wine tours.
Croatia is great for:
- All inclusive holidays - Croatian cuisine is a culinary delight, and a good all inclusive package is a stress-free way of enjoying a great family meal each night. Local favourites include black risotto and the sweet treat fritule.
- Beach holidays - The Croatian islands are ideal for a spot of snorkelling due to their crystal clear waters, plus, they’re less populated than any of the mainland spots.
- Cheap holidays - Food, drinks and activities are very reasonably priced on the islands, so Croatia is a great cheap holiday option. Croatian wine is delicious and very reasonably priced, so make sure you indulge!
