    Join this wonderful 9-day tour, starting and finishing in Croatia’s capital city of Zagreb.

    Explore the medieval Upper town and vibrant Lower town, conveniently connected by the shortest funicular in the world.

    Have a cup of coffee in the cobbled Tkalča street, just moments away from the main square.

    Bid Zagreb goodbye (for now) and head southwards to the UNESCO-protected Plitvice Lakes National Park.

    Explore untouched nature, walk the wooden paths under stunning waterfalls and enjoy a scenic boat ride across the lakes.

    From Plitvice we’ll head straight to Dubrovnik, Croatia’s star destination and another UNESCO-protected sight.

    Two nights in this beautiful city provide enough time for sightseeing and visiting some of the most famous attractions, including the St Blaise’s Cathedral, the Stradun Promenade, the Rector’s Palace and the Franciscan Monastery.

    On our way back north we’ll visit Split, Croatia’s second largest city famous for the Ancient Roman palace built by Emperor Diocletian.

    A quick stop in Trogir will give you a chance to explore this picturesque medieval town.

    Before returning to Zagreb, we’ll spend a night in Zadar, another Roman city full of historic landmarks such as the Pre-Romanesque church of Saint Donatus.

    Its old town enclosed by the formidable city walls will leave you mesmerised as you explore every corner.
