More than 1,000 islands dotted about the sparkling Adriatic Sea, charming old cities, timeless landscapes, national parks and an easy pace. It’s little wonder that the Croatian tourist board uses the slogan: “the Mediterranean as it once was”. Travellers taking cheap flights to Croatia will discover that it has all the beauty, weather and relaxed way of life of other Mediterranean countries, but without the Eurozone princess.

Zagreb, in the centre of Croatia, is the capital, a charming red-roofed and cobble-stoned city with two Old Towns. Along the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia’s cities are strung out like pearls, each more beautiful than the last.

At the southern end of the country lies Dubrovnik, a charming, cultured and chocolate-box pretty city with a World-Heritage listed Old Town. Shelled during the Croatian War of Independence in the early 1990s, it was rebuilt perfectly.

Split, further north, is Croatia’s second-largest city. The stand-out attraction here are the remains of an imperial palace built for Diocletian, the Roman Emperor, at the start of the 4th Century AD.

In Pula, the largest town on the Istrian peninsula in the north of Croatia, stands one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world. It sported a red neck tie, briefly, in 2003, to pay tribute to the birthplace of the tie.

Off the coast, the islands are gems; Hvar, Korcula and Brac are the most popular.

Peak Season: 

Croatia’s drawcard are the islands and July and August are, unsurprisingly, the high season months. The cities – Zagreb, Dubrovnik etc – are busiest in the summer months too. 

Off Season: 

The off season varies according to where you are visiting in Croatia. Zagreb is worth a visit at any time of year, with January and February generally considered low season. January and February are also low season along the coast. This is high season in the ski resorts.  

Shoulder Season: 

The Dinaric Alps that extend along the Adriatic guards the coastline from the worst of the winds and cold weather. Spring arrives early and autumn ends late. It’s possible to swim from about May until October in Southern Dalmatia. May is a great month to visit Dubrovnik and other cities; you’ll have it as the locals have it.

Getting around Croatia

Croatia Airlines flies from Zagreb to several cities including Dubrovnik, Split, Pula and Zadar. The train system is fairly well developed – it doesn’t extend to Dubrovnik for example – but buses are the cheapest and most popular form of public transport. You’ll need to rent a car – an expensive option in Croatia – only if you wish to get out into the countryside. 

There are several ferry lines that operate between the islands. Jadrolinija is the state-owned line. A sample journey – Dubrovnik to Sobra, on Mljet – costs from $10.
