Package Itinerary

Day 1: Zagreb Arrival

Arrival at the airport dr. Franjo Tuđman, transfer to your hotel in your own arrangement. After settling in your hotel, we will take you on a private walking tour of the Croatian metropole.

Today's Zagreb has grown out of two medieval settlements that for centuries developed on neighboring hills. The first written mention of the city dates from 1094 when a diocese was founded on Kaptol, while in 1242, neighboring Gradec was proclaimed a free and royal city. Both the settlements were surrounded by high walls and towers, the remains of which are still preserved.

During the Turkish onslaughts on Europe, between the 14th and 18th centuries, Zagreb was an important border fortress. The Baroque reconstruction of the city in the 17th and 18th centuries changed the appearance of the city. The old wooden houses were demolished, and opulent palaces, monasteries, and churches were built. The many trade fairs, the revenues from landed estates, and the offerings of the many craft workshops greatly contributed to the wealth of the city.

Overnight at the hotel.

Day 2: Zagreb – Plitvice Lakes NP – Zadar

After breakfast, we will pick you up at your hotel and continue our trip to the national park Plitvice Lakes. Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the greatest natural wonders of Europe. Embraced by high wooded mountains, one beneath another lie sixteen beautiful lakes of crystal blue-green water.

Connected to each other by a series of foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls, the lakes are fed by many rivers and streams. Over the millennia, the waters of these lakes have dissolved the limestone rock and carved out the valley in which they now lie. Through the process of sedimentation of calcium carbonate and the work of special kinds of algae and moss, tufa or travertine has been deposited and is still deposited to form the natural dams that separate the lakes.

In the evening hours, you will arrive in Zadar and settle in a hotel.

Day 3 and 4: Zadar

Day 5: Zadar – Split – Hvar Island

After breakfast, transfer to Split. From Split by ferry to Hvar, the longest and the sunniest Croatian island and one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

The island of Hvar is famous for its pleasant Mediterranean climate. The island is characterized by gentle winters, warm summers, and many hours of sunshine (2,718 hours a year). The island of Hvar was populated already in prehistoric times and later inhabited by the Illyrians, who came into conflict with the Greek colonizers in the 4th century BC.

Hvar is an ancient town with a rich history on the island in the Croatian Adriatic Sea the same name. Many people say the town Hvar that it is a town from a fairy tale because of its architecture, wonderful nature, and its mild climate. Because of a lot of clubs, Hvar is one of the most popular party destinations.

Overnight at the hotel.

Day 8: Hvar – Dubrovnik

The 'Pearl of the Adriatic', situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces, and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration program coordinated by UNESCO.
