Croatia - A view from our expert author


I’ve had a love affair with Croatia for over 25 years, ever since I first InterRailed around Europe in 1982 and got stranded in Split for four days.

Read The author’s take

Croatia is blessed with one of the most striking coastlines in the Mediterranean, but its diversity is what makes it truly special – from the glamour of Hvar and charm of Korčula to the wild, rugged beauty of Mljet and Lokrum. You’ll find spectacular mountain hiking trails, countless unspoilt national parks, a range of colourful festivals – and, of course, the mighty walls and medieval monasteries of Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar.
