Sailing from Dubrovnik
The magnificent medieval walled city is the perfect place to begin a sailing holiday around Croatia's stunning islands. With awe-inspiring palaces, fine city walls and imposing monasteries, it's a top spot to wander at leisure soaking it all in and as the set for the popular TV show Game of Thrones it holds even more appeal for many visitors. We have three Croatia sailing holidays departing from Dubrovnik - Cruise Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast, Creme de la Croatia and our northbound Adriatic Explorer - all 8 days in length departing between April and October to make the most of the sunny Mediterranean summer. Consider arriving early to spend a few days in Dubrovnik before your cruise and take the cable car up Mount Srđ for incredible views of the city.
Recommended places to visit in Croatia
With historic walled cities, a stunning coastline with hundreds of attractive islands, and a forested interior home to sparkling waterfalls and lakes, Croatia is not short on city and nature-based attractions so to get you started we've compiled a list of our favourite spots:
Within ancient stone walls, the historic centre of Dubrovnik remains untouched by the 21st century with gorgeous churches, baroque buildings and bell towers lining the marble streets. Fronting the brilliant blue waters of the Adriatic and backed by mountains it's easily Croatia's most stunning destination, used as a setting in the popular TV show Game of Thrones.
Popular with the rich and famous, the glitzy island of Hvar is Croatia's prime party destination with legendary nightlife, flashy bars and waterfront restaurants. The 13th century Hvar Town is one of the Adriatic’s best-preserved historic towns and attracts a range of visitors including families looking for a slice of unspoiled beauty on the Mediterranean with a healthy dose of natural beauty.
Covered by forest and rural landscapes of cultivated fields, neat vineyards and attractive villages, Mljet island is one of the Adriatic's most beautiful and a firm favourite on sailing routes. The western side of the island is a national park that encompasses untouched Mediterranean forests and two gorgeous saltwater lakes with an island monastery that dates back to the 12th century.
The Plitvice Lakes National Park is Croatia's biggest natural attraction with 16 crystalline lakes coursing their way through pristine forest to create a series of cascades and ever-changing rock formations. The captivating turquoise waters are rich in fish while colourful butterflies hover over the bridges and walkways that enable visitors to explore the park.
Marking the crossroads where western and eastern Europe meet, the capital city of Zagreb has been Croatia's cultural and political heart since the Middle Ages and continues to develop its own unique personality with grand Austro-Hungarian architecture standing beside harsher socialist structures. With excellent museums, lively cafes and cutting-edge clubs, Zagreb offers the perfect city stay.
