A snapshot of living history

A rich mix of natural beauty, medieval ports, cobbled cities, historic sites and special experiences await you in Croatia and Slovenia.

Perhaps Croatia’s most famous landscape is the Dalmatian Coast, with its white powder beaches and dramatic limestone cliffs. Plitvice National Park comes a close second, where lakes, waterfalls and forests make up Europe’s most beautiful conservation area. And for stunning subterranean drama, head to Ljubljana in Slovenia to see the limestone formations of Postojna Caves.

History is everywhere in Croatia and Slovenia. After visiting the 4th-century Diocletian's Palace in Split, many hours can also be spent wandering through its bustling medieval streets, filled with higgledy-piggledy shops, bars and restaurants. Further south along the coastline, Dubrovnik is known for its 15th-century Rector's Palace and ancient old town that’s filled with tucked-away little cafes and bars, perfect for people-watching. Head down to the southern peninsula to find UNSECO-listed Roman temples and amphitheatre dating back to the 1st century.

Slovenia’s leafy capital Ljubljana offers a harmonious blend of history and modern living, its red-roofed cityscape running through with a beautiful green river and a car-free centre. Get out of the capital and you'll discover tranquil fishing villages and seaside resorts that give you a taste of a truly laid-back lifestyle.
