DAY 1 and DAY 2 - Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, ‘The Pearl of the Adriatic', is known for its spectacular seafront location on the Dalmatian coast and breathtaking beauty. For most of its history, Dubrovnik was a republic of its own and a beacon of diplomacy. In the 13th century, it became the trading power of the Mediterranean, keeping its freedom of trade through diplomatic routes and its protective walls and fortress.

The architecture, philosophy, science, literature, and music of Dubrovnik are an irresistible part of the cultural heritage of Europe, which is why UNESCO has placed Dubrovnik under its special protection in 1979. The City offers a unique experience, numerous cultural activities, and festivals. It was the main filming location for King's Landing (Game of Thrones) and one of the filming locations for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

DAY 3 - Ston and Imotski

Popularly known as ‘The Great Wall of Croatia’, more than five kilometers in length, Ston town walls are the longest complete fortress system around a town in Europe and the second in the world. Built-in the 15th century as the first line of defense, heavily fortified, with the purpose to protect a precious commodity – salt.

Ston was economically and strategically the most important place in the Dubrovnik Republic. With the tradition of harvesting salt for over 4000 years, ‘The City of Salt’ is confirmed even nowadays as the oldest active salt pan in the world. Saltworks were built there in the 13th century, today producing salt in the same way as eight centuries ago.

Ston Bay is divided into shallow, separate pools filled with seawater, which is heated with solar energy and gradually evaporates due to constantly high temperatures. Shiny-white sediment of crystal salt remains at the bottom of the pools, which is then dug out, or better "harvested", with wooden shovels, and loaded onto mine cars.

Compared to sea salt, Ston salt presents excellent characteristics which more than anything witness the pureness of the sea it is derived from complete whiteness and shine. In 2014 The Solana Ston Museum became part of the existing company.

The Blue and the Red Lakes have been recognized as the top tourist attraction of Imotski. Both lakes are a natural phenomenon, also known as 'pearls of nature. The Blue Lake is almost bordering the town of Imotski, while the Red Lake is only one kilometer away. Blue Lake got named after the color of the water in it, and Red Lake's name comes from the red stones that surround it. The Blue one is very attractive to media during periods of extreme drought because when the lake gets dry local people to form play football at the bottom.

DAY 4 - Split

“Mediterranean Flower,” Croatia’s second-largest city, Split, is located on a beautiful peninsula off the Dalmatian Coast. Built between 298 and 305 AD in the glory of Ancient Rome by Emperor Diocletian as a palace, a luxury summer house. Growth became rapid in the 7th century when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis Salonae (Solin) took refuge within its walls. Today, Diocletian’s Palace in the very heart of Split is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has been a high point for world travelers for well over a thousand years.

DAY 5 - Trogir, Solin, and Klis

Trogir, the city with 2300 years of tradition, is a remarkable example of an urban island settlement from the Hellenistic period. In the first-century Trogir became the Roman municipality ‘Tragurium’, and joined Salona, the center of the Roman province of Dalmatia. Upon the fall of the Roman Empire, Trogir has become an independent town.

It has beautiful Romanesque churches which are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period, and in 1997 UNESCO acknowledged Trogir as a World Cultural Heritage.

3000 years old ‘Salona’, today Solin, was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian. In the 7th century, the town was destroyed after the arrival of Avars and Croats, and refugees escaped to Diocletian’s Palace, in Split. Known as ‘The Cradle of Croatian history, it was one of the capital cities in the Medieval Croatian state and a place where Croatian King Demetrius Zvonimir was crowned in the 11th century. Today, Solin preserved remains of the old city and the arena, where gladiators fought to the death.

The Klis Fortress is situated on the eponymous hill near the town of Split, between the mountains of Mosor and Kozjak. Back in the 7th century, a very important defense point in the Croatian history, as it was a seat to many of Croatia's rulers. Over history, it was in the possessions of Ottomans, Venetians, and Austrians. Today, Klis Fortress is a tourist attraction with a museum, from where you can take some beautiful panorama pictures of Split.

Stella Croatica is a long family tradition of growing local home-grown products and old recipes of local delicacies.

Top-quality olive oil, desserts made of figs, walnuts, and citrus fruits, healthy honey snacks, and a variety of tasty and cute cookies, jams, and spreads are part of their unique offer. Carefully designed packaging, their products are deservedly referred to as premium boutique products, and more importantly – true gastronomic souvenirs of this region.

DAY 6 - Šibenik and Zadar

Šibenik was created as an ancient castrum, a fortification at the bottom of St. Michael’s Fortress, that today still dominates the town. The city was mentioned for the first time in the 11th century in a proclamation by King Petar Krešimir IV., the most important Croatian ruler. In the 12th century, it was destroyed by the Venetians, but settlers built it again from the ground.

The harbor, connected to the open sea by St. Anthony Strait, has been an initiator of maritime affairs development, trading, and the overall economic prosperity of the town for centuries. The Fortress of St. Nicholas, at the entrance into the Strait, is the most important renaissance fortress on the eastern coast of the Adriatic.

Then we will take you to the beautiful Krka National Park, home to more than 800 species of flora and a huge range of birds. You’ll trek through lush vegetation to the magnificent waterfalls of Skradinski Buk, and Roški Slap, enjoying views of beautiful small cascades and numerous backwaters and islets. Krka Waterfalls is the only National Park in Croatia where swimming is allowed!

Zadar was a settlement of the Illyrian tribe of Liburnians (Jader) in the 4th century BC. Later it became a Roman municipal, which shaped the architectural characteristics of today. It became the center of the Byzantine province of Dalmatia in the 7th century, and in the 9th century, Zadar was mentioned as the seat of bishop Donatus and the Byzantine leader Paulus.

A city of old and dynamic history, often destructed and devastated, every time emerging from the ruins stronger, richer, and more beautiful. In 2016 Zadar got the prestigious title of ‘Best European Destinations’. Enjoy our evening tour.

DAY 7 - Plitvice Lakes National Park

The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s most popular tourist attraction, located roughly halfway between the capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, covers a total area of 300 square kilometers, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometers.

It is a part of UNESCO World Heritage since 1979. It lies in its sixteen lakes, the waters flowing over the limestone have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves, and waterfalls. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves, and many rare bird species, so the Plitvice Lakes National Park is definitely a must-see!
