Destinations That Will Have You Rushing to Croatia & Its Neighbours
Over the past decade, Croatia has exploded onto the holiday scene! The backpackers were first to arrive, shortly followed by the festival-goers, and now the all inclusive holiday lovers are beginning to head to Croatia. Croatia sports clear, turquoise seas, historical cities and rugged scenery. However, its not the only country to do so, it’s neighbours also boast dreamy good looks. Here, we’ve rounded up the destinations that will have you rushing to this picturesque part of the world.
Those less interested in the fantasy drama can spend their days exploring the historic old town, kayaking through the clear seas or indulging in fresh sea fare.
Those who stay in the city itself will be rewarded with smooth marble streets, and a sea organ which plays music to passers by as the waves come in. Alfred Hitchcock once declared Zadar to have 'the best sunset in the world' and its worth heading to the seashore as the night draws in to find out why.
Back down on lower ground, there are surprisingly affordable restaurants to explore and waterside cafes to enjoy a coffee in.
What is remarkable, however, is just how picturesque a destination it is. The famous Stari Most bridge juts out across the teal waters below where revellers splash about. There are petite cafes with al fresco dining areas to eat in, famous mosques to explore and pretty walks aplenty to enjoy.

It's worth noting that dinner here is served late and slowly, allowing you to savour your evening and immerse yourself in Italian culture!
For a decadent day out, head to the island of Veli Brijun where peacocks strut through the grass, and you can try your hand at archery or golf.
Away from the seashore, Porec has a buzzing nightlife with chic wine bars sitting beside vast glamorous nightclubs which host world-famous DJs!
