Croatia is a land of contrasts with an impressive heritage. The north of the country shares many cultural similarities with Central Europe, whilst its coastline feels closer to the Mediterranean. It is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for a holiday with a bit of variety. The Croatian Riviera, with its 5,800 kilometres of beaches and more than 1,000 islands surrounded by the shimmering blue waters of the Adriatic, is breathtakingly beautiful. There’s Zagreb, which is both the capital and cultural centre of the country, Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic", and Split, the commercial and cultural hub of central Dalmatia... All these destinations have diverse landscapes and fascinating history for you to discover!
Dubrovnik, nicknamed the "Pearl of the Adriatic" in southern Croatia, takes you on a journey back in time.

The magnificent pebble beaches, hemmed in by crystal-clear waters, give their summer visitors a taste of seaside paradise. At the same time, the green mountainous coastline invites you to head inland to discover the hinterland or set sail for the countless charming Dalmatian islands and see it from the sea.
Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has earned its nickname the “Pearl of the Adriatic”.
