Trip Summary
2 nights in Split

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, and its history stretches back over 1,700 years. The Roman Emperor Diocletian built his lavish retirement palace here. It is the largest and best-preserved example of a Roman palace left in the world, and it is listed on the register of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Diocletian's Palace is the gem of the Old Town, a pedestrianized zone which includes the beautiful riverwalk called Riva. It could not blend traditions and modern life more perfectly; buzzing shops, restaurants, and bars are situated alongside monuments and buildings dating from the Roman era. The dramatic backdrop of mountains bleeds into the sea, giving an atmospheric setting to this stunning city.

Visit Split's Old Town, Diocletian's Palace, Bacvice, Marjan, Mestrovic Gallery, Klis Fortress, Diocletian's Palace, Riva, Gregory of Nin statue, Chapel of St. Arnir, Diocletian's Cellars, Peristyle, Republic Square, People's Square, and so much more.



1 nights in Zadar

Zadar, the fifth-largest city in Croatia, boasts a long tradition and a rich cultural heritage. The town is fortified with thick walls, renowned for their impressive ports, such as the Harbor Port and the Mainland Port, which date back to the sixteenth century. Zadar's most impressive sight is the pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donatus. The town is also famous for having the most beautiful Romanesque churches in Croatia, such as the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, the Church of St. Chrysogonus and the Bell-tower of St. Mary.

Visit and discover the great Zadar's Old Town, Puntamika Beach, Kolovare Beach, Borik Beach, The Marinas, Zadar Cathedral, the Roman Forum of Iadera, Church of St. Donatus, St. Mary`s Church, Zadar`s Venetian defensive system, Church of St. Chrysogonus, and so much more.



1 nights in Opatija

Opatija was the site of the first luxury hotel on the eastern Adriatic, opening in 1884. In the decades afterward, Opatija grew to become the premier health spa for the Austrian imperial house and the kings and queens of Europe. Over 100 years later, Opatija is still recognized the world over for luxury, relaxation, and wellness. Stroll the Lungomare, the seaside promenade, and go back to a time and place where life was just a tad more gilded.

Visit and explore the Lungomare, St. Jacob`s Church, Park Angiolina, Villa Angiolina, Croatian Walk of Fame, Croatian Museum of Tourism, Hotel Kvarner, Carmen Sylva Forest Path, Maiden with the Seagull statue, Madonna del Mare, Volosko, Icici, Ika, and so much more.



2 nights in Zagreb

Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative center of Croatia. It is known as the City of Museums, as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world. Zagreb is a vibrant, modern destination with a variety of shops, quality restaurants and sports and recreation facilities. The historical part of the city to the north is comprised of the Upper Town and Kaptol, a medieval urban complex of churches, palaces, museums, galleries and government buildings. Of particular note is the breathtaking Gothic-style Zagreb Cathedral, from which the entire city was born.

Explore the Kaptol, Upper Town, Lower Town, Zagreb Cathedral, St. Mark's Church, Art Pavilion, Mestrovic Pavilion, Mimara Museum, Lotrscak Tower, Kamenita vrata, Ilica, King Tomislav Square, Lenuci's Horseshoe, Ban Josip Jelacic Square, and so much more.
