Illuminated by an endless shimmer from the Adriatic, this Mediterranean country treats holidaymakers to postcard-perfect landscapes, crystal blue waters, luscious green forestry and cities rich in history and cultural tradition.

With its trendy restaurants and famous Zlatni Ratz beach, Brac Island is the perfect location for energetic culture-seekers and watersports lovers. For a slower pace, head west to the city of Rovinj. Here holidaymakers are greeted with charming cobbled streets, ancient architecture and a thriving art scene. An al fresco meal in the old town promises to be one of the most pleasant moments of your trip. Further south of the country is Dubrovnik. Known as the ‘Gem of Croatia’, this bustling city is not only the location for several summer festivals, but home to the famous ancient city walls. 

From white marble beaches to untouched islands with luscious green forestry, Croatia’s landscape is a perfect picture waiting to happen. Take a day trip to Zlatni Ratz beach where you’ll enjoy turquoise waters and a lively atmosphere. When you’ve had your share of sun lounging, hop on a bus to the historic city of Dubrovnik. If you arrive at the peak of summer you’ll experience the city’s vibrant Summer Festival in full swing. At any other time of the year, a simple wander around the old town to observe the medieval architecture and ancient monuments is a must. 

With more than 1,100 unique islands peppered around its coast, Croatia is an explorer's dream. The beaches vary from island to island, though all of them have crystal blue waters. Zlatni Ratz beach in Bol is popular for its smooth white pebbles, sweet-scented pine trees and picturesque location behind rocky cliffs. Spend the day sun-lounging or take advantage of the huge number of watersports on offer. For a quieter spot with excellent swimming, hop on a ferry shuttle over to Lokrum island where you can indulge in lush green forests. 

It’s almost impossible to visit any of the main cities in Croatia and not see evidence of the country’s rich historical and cultural heritage. Spend an afternoon wandering around the old town of Rovinj to witness the thriving art scene nestled within its cobbled streets. The history of Dubrovnik can be easily traced thanks to its carefully preserved architecture, time-tested traditions and several historical monuments. Be sure to visit the ancient walls, where visitors are treated to magnificent views over the city and Adriatic Sea. 

Thanks to its own cultural ceremonies and a new wave of festivals that now take place in the country throughout the year, Croatia is a bubbling hot spot for music lovers. Holidaymakers in Dubrovnik between July and August should check out the Summer Festival, which sees over 80 music, film and theatre performances taking place around the city. If you like to dance you won’t want to miss the Rovinj Summer Salsa Festival at the end of June, when the city’s cobbled streets, market squares and beaches become a huge salsa dance floor.
