Immaculate beaches and picture postcard villages
Holidays to Croatia have a romantic, rather than a hectic nightlife in the tourist resorts. Evenings can be spent drifting along the charming promenades and dining in the numerous welcoming pavement cafes and tavernas. The warm, crystalline waters are safe for bathing making Croatia holidays a fantastic destination for families with children too.
Approximately four fifths of the country’s population is Roman Catholic, shaping Croatian culture just like the national football team manages to do.
Food is a particular passion here also, where an amazing array of local fresh fish are caught and traditionally cooked in olive oil. For meat lovers, try the ‘Pasticada’ which is a local speciality of beef and strips of bacon. Italian influence is also apparent here as pasta dishes are also extremely popular.
Somewhat surprisingly Croatian wine is an absolute treat too, helping to wash down all of the indulgent food! If its picture postcard villages with immaculate beaches you are looking for, or if rural retreats appeal, or maybe bustling medieval towns where you can soak up all of its history and atmosphere, then Croatia is for you.

Step back in time as you visit this archipelago of citrus covered plantations with pine clad hills and soft sandy beaches. Men play cards at pavement cafes and the women sit on the porch and sew.
The largest National Park in Croatia and a coveted UNESCO World Heritage Site, waterfalls at Plitvice Lakes cascade from one pool to the next in a nature lover’s paradise.
You’d be excused here for thing that you’d arrived in Rome when you visit Pula. It’s enormous Roman Amphitheatre rival the Coliseum and you wouldn’t even bat an eyelid if a wandering gladiator passed by.
