A snapshot of living history

Nicknamed the ‘Adriatic Coast’s best-kept secret’, you have to wonder how Croatia managed to stay under the radar for quite so long. The sparkling coastal scenery is enough to draw in the crowds and the country’s ancient walled towns paint a vivid picture of life in the Roman era. Come here to wander the cobbled streets of UNESCO-listed old towns, to roam ancient amphitheatres left behind by the Romans or to experience the spectacular natural wonder that is Plitvice National Park. Just make sure you visit soon before the secret is out completely.
