Ever dreamt of sailing across foreign seas, exploring miles of untouched coastline and swimming in crystal clear water? If you haven’t you will now, as the beauty of Croatia will have you falling head over heels in-love.
Croatia is renowned for its mix of old world charm, natural contrasts and sophistication. Located in Eastern Europe, its neighbours are Slovenia and Bosnia. The country is made up of thousands of islands which are broken up into ten regions, with the southern Dalmatian Coast, and Split considered “The Jewel of an Empire”. Home to Biokovo, the highest mountain on the coast, picturesque national parks and ancient cities and forts dating back to the Roman times, this dramatic backdrop sweeps down towards a lush shoreline of long pebbled beaches. And that’s where the fun begins…
On a cruise, each island and region you visit will whisk you away into a fantasy world. You’ll be taken aback by the raw stone towers and the terracotta roofs catching the sun as you sail past. Each alleyway will surprise you – think hidden bars, shops and restaurants lining the cobble stone pathways, and an enchanting atmosphere to match.
