  • 2 Gradec Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Jezuitski Trg HR - 10000 Zagreb

    Zagreb emerged out of Kaptol, the episcopal city, and Gradec, the feudal city. Gradec, whose upper section lacks atmosphere, becomes livelier as it heads down to the market and will be a real jewel once fully restored. Visitors will need to search ou..

  • 6 Pag Island Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

  • 7 Vis Island Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    HR - 21480 Vis

    This small, wild and steep island is, along with Lastovo, the furthest (45km) from the mainland. Fortunately, it has yet to be disfigured by big hotels and is slowly opening up to sustainable tourism. The island lives principally from fishing and win..

  • 8 Nin Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    HR - 23232 Nin

    This tiny medieval city stands on an island at the heart of one of the many harbours and sheltered lagoons along the Zadar coast. Nin's fortune came from salt production, the traditional methods of which are still used. Saltwater is first pumped to f..

  • 11 Krk Island Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    HR - Krk

    Covering an area of 409km2, the biggest island in the Adriatic is not without charm: a stunning landscape, tiny hilltop villages, excellent wine, and a medieval "capital". It has great symbolic value for Croats: it is here that the Baska st..

  • 12 Lim Fjord Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    HR - 52440 Porec

    Taking its name from the Latin limes ("frontier"), this astonishing fjord once separated the towns of Porec and Rovinj. Long and narrow, it plunges 9km inland between walls as much as 100m high. Its protected waters (no swimming allowed) ar..

  • 14 Fortifications and Minceta tower Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Tvrdava Minceta HR - 20000 Dubrovnik

    Attacks by land were the hardest to withstand, hence the thickness of the walls here. To bolster the defences, a fore-wall and defensive moat were built. The most interesting views of the walled town can be enjoyed from here, with the chequered stree..

  • 15 St Michael's Fortress Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    HR - Preko

    This is the most attractive walk on Uglian, an otherwise rather unremarkable island facing Zadar which has remained true to its agricultural heritage (olive oil production). Along the walk, enjoy superb views across the rest of the island, Zadar, the..

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Trg Tvrdalj HR - 21450 Starigrad

  • 17 Sermage Palace Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Bakaceva HR - 42000 Varaždin

    Religious buildings

    Brne Krnarutica HR - 23000 Zadar

    Consecrated in 1175, this church is a superb example of Italian Romanesque art, particularly the apse and lateral façade. The rows of blind arches and the series of fine columns suggest the influence of Lombardian and Tuscan artists. The interior has..

    Religious buildings

    Ul. Kralja Tomislava HR - 31500 Nasice

    Gothic in origin (note the buttressed chevet which has preserved its original structure), the church adjoining the monastery was largely rebuilt and extended in the Baroque style between 1719 and 1763: the façade was restored, and side chapels and an..
