Best of Croa­tia



Wel­come to Zagreb, the cap­i­tal and the largest city of the Repub­lic of Croa­tia. Our guide will pick you up at the Zagreb Air­port and trans­fer you to your accom­mo­da­tion. Once you’ve set­tled down, we are tak­ing you on a tour of the city cen­ter where you will see the most famous sights of Zagreb. You can choose between two pos­si­ble routes for your visit of the city. The first is ded­i­cated mostly to the city’s his­tor­i­cal land­marks and the sight­see­ing starts at the Main Square, from where we move on to the Zagreb Cathe­dral and con­tinue through Tkalčićeva street and the “Bloody Bridge” (Krvavi Most) to the Stone Gate and St Mark’s Church. We end our tour vis­it­ing the Lotrščak Tower and tak­ing a pleas­ant ride on the Zagreb Funic­u­lar. The alter­na­tive route is a panoramic one, as we will take you for a ride on the Zagreb horse­shoe: we will visit the Zrin­je­vac Square, the King Tomis­lav Square, the Botan­i­cal gar­den and the Croa­t­ian National The­ater. Later on, we will make a short visit to Mak­simir, Zagreb’s old­est pub­lic park and the Mirogoj ceme­tery. After the walk, it’s time for you to relax over a nice wel­come din­ner with spe­cial­ties of the local cui­sine. You will spend the night in a 4* hotel.


After break­fast, we are head­ing to Varaždin, where we are going to visit Trakošćan — the most beau­ti­ful cas­tle located in north­ern Croa­tia that dates back to the 13th cen­tury. It has been metic­u­lously main­tained and is cur­rently one of the best pre­served his­toric build­ings in the coun­try. Later in the after­noon we are head­ing to the Plitvice Lakes National Park where we are also going to have din­ner and spend the night in a 4* hotel.


On the third day we will visit the most beau­ti­ful and famous national park in Croa­tia — Plitvice Lakes NP, con­tain­ing a series of 16 lakes, caves and water­falls. We’ll enjoy the breath­tak­ing view of the waters flow­ing over the nat­ural dams which in turn have cre­ated a series of beau­ti­ful lakes, caves and water­falls. The forests in the park are home to some wild ani­mals such as bears, wolves and many rare bird species. We will take a 4 hour walk­ing tour of the park and con­tinue towards Zadar in the after­noon. Boast­ing a his­toric old town of Roman ruins and medieval churches, cos­mopoli­tan cafes and qual­ity muse­ums, Zadar is an extra­or­di­nary city. It is not too crowded, it isn’t over­run with tourists and its two unique attrac­tions, the sound-​and-​light spec­ta­cle of the Sea Organ and Sun Salu­ta­tion, need to be seen and heard to be believed. The mix of beau­ti­ful Roman archi­tec­ture, Hab­s­burg ele­gance, a won­der­ful seafront and some unsightly ordi­nary office blocks is what gives Zadar so much char­ac­ter. Overnight stay in a 4* hotel.


After break­fast we will take a very scenic drive on the Dal­ma­t­ian coast where are first stop will be Tro­gir where your guide will take you on a walk through its nar­row streets and rich his­tory. We will visit St. Lawrence Cathe­dral, Radovan’s por­tal (the most sig­nif­i­cant medieval por­tal on this part of Europe), Palace of Cipico, Tower of Kamer­lengo and many more. We are head­ing to Split, free time for dinner.


Croatia’s sec­ond biggest city is one of the old­est cities in the area. While it is tra­di­tion­ally con­sid­ered just over 1,700 years old count­ing from the con­struc­tion of Diocletian’s Palace in 305 CE, archae­o­log­i­cal research relat­ing to the orig­i­nal found­ing of the city as the in the 4th cen­tury BCE. Lovely archi­tec­ture and great nightlife are sure to be its major attrac­tions. The ETNOLAND expe­ri­ence begins with your jour­ney to the Dal­ma­t­ian hin­ter­land, to Pakovo Selo. Here, you can expect a 1.53 hour day or evening expe­ri­ence tak­ing place no mat­ter the weather con­di­tions and all year long. In the late after­noon we head to Dubrovnik and spend the night there in a 4* hotel.


The last des­ti­na­tion of our tour — Dubrovnik –dur­ing its his­tory was renowned as one of the most pros­per­ous and advanced mar­itime republics of all time. Through­out its rich and trou­bled his­tory Dubrovnik remained to this day one of the most beau­ti­ful medieval cities on the Mediter­ranean and was included on UNESCO‘s World Cul­tural Her­itage List in 1979. We’ll take you for a walk through­out its stone paved streets, vis­it­ing the heart of the old town and wit­ness the impres­sive eco­nomic, social, and cul­tural achieve­ments dur­ing over 1,400 years of Dubrovnik his­tory. It is truly a place where every stone has a story to tell. Our Dubrovnik native tour guide will take you off the beaten path to get acquainted with all Dubrovnik secrets usu­ally not told to most other guests, but all major sights will be vis­ited as well (Onofrio’s foun­tain, Fran­cis­can Monastery, St. Blaise Church, Orlando’s Col­umn, Sponza Palace, Rector’s Palace, Cathe­dral). Overnight stay in a 4* hotel.
