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.
