Let's start with a resort whose name has been heard by everyone who has at least once thought about vacationing in Croatia. After all, Dubrovnik is the most popular resort in the country, which is fortunate to be washed by the Adriatic Sea, and the resort is called the "Pearl of the Adriatic"

Bernard Shaw once said: "Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik, because nowhere else can one find such grandeur and tranquility, such beauty and harmony." We cannot disagree with the great playwright and recommend Dubrovnik to those travelers who value developed infrastructure, a large number of entertainment options and establishments in addition to the extraordinarily beautiful surrounding nature.

Attractions in Dubrovnik:

  • Lovrijenac Fortress
  • Dubrovnik City Walls
  • Fort Bokar
  • Minčeta Tower
  • St. John's Fortress
  • Cable Car

Istria is also deservedly comparable to a paradise corner, where a calm and relaxing atmosphere reigns. Nature here is striking in its beauty: crystal clear sea, rocky coastline, pine forests and deciduous parks create a harmonious combination that you want to admire every minute. The air is easy to breathe and comfortable to relax in.

Also, the peninsula is home to the smallest town in the world - Hum, which has a population of... only 17 people. Due to historical events and geographical location, Istria has been significantly influenced by Italy, so here, like nowhere else in Croatia, you will be delighted with the most delicious pizza, pasta and other delicacies of Italian origin, which are considered traditional along with Croatian cuisine.

Impeccable ecology, clean sea water and healing air are undoubtedly factors playing in favor of this resort.


Pula is one of the most interesting cities in Croatia. It combines ancient history and the Adriatic Sea coast, old architectural landmarks and clean beaches. Low prices compared to other European resorts also serve as an advantage of the resort.

In Pula, you can see ancient Roman buildings next to Italian palaces and Austrian houses. The beaches around Pula are rocky, with large, medium, and small pebbles, and concrete slabs. Whichever you choose - the water there will be clear, without dirt, excessive algae, or other drawbacks. You just need to move away from the center, as there is a port there and swimming is not allowed.

Attractions in Pula:

  • Amphitheater
  • Pula Museum
  • Arch of the Sergii
  • Temple of Augustus


Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and one of the most popular among tourists. Diverse beaches, clean sea, and relatively low prices for summer vacations have made the resort a very popular tourist destination. The main highlight is added by the fact that the historical center of the city is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

In Split, there are beaches covered with both sand and small pebbles. The coastline is quite modern and equipped with all amenities: changing cabins, showers, sun loungers, umbrellas. Entrance to the beach is mostly free, as is the use of all these amenities. The water at all beaches is equally transparent, and the entry into it is gentle and comfortable.

Attractions in Split:

  • Diocletian's Palace
  • Old Town of Split
  • Riva Promenade
  • Klis Fortress
  • Ruins of Salona
  • Marjan Hill

Makarska Riviera

The Makarska Riviera is another resort town on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, surrounded by numerous great beaches.

On one side, it is surrounded by nature reserves with all the wonders of nature, and on the other - a clean sea with many islands. This destination is truly one of the best in all of Croatia.

You can book a hotel in Croatia with a discount of up to 65% on the website.

Attractions of the Makarska Riviera:

  • Biokovo Nature Park
  • Church of St. Mark
  • Church of St. Peter


The city of Rovinj is also spread out along the shores of the Adriatic. The old town of Rovinj is located on a small peninsula, over which the cathedral towers. Along the coastline of Rovinj, there are 22 picturesque islands.

Due to the numerous freshwater streams located at the bottom and in the surrounding mountains embracing the city and the bay, the water here is slightly salty. This creates excellent conditions for plant cultivation and animal breeding. That's why Rovinj has numerous farms for growing oysters, mussels, sea bream, and bass. These delicacies can be tasted in restaurants on the shore of the bay. The surrounding mountains are covered with dense forest, creating a special atmosphere of a city lost among natural beauty.

Attractions in Rovinj:

  • Ruins of the fortress walls
  • Califfi Palace
  • Batana House Museum
  • Cathedral


The Kvarner resort differs from its more popular counterparts in that it is not as crowded with tourists as its neighbors. However, Kvarner is not at all inferior in beauty and picturesqueness. And due to the combination of sand-colored architecture with luxurious palm trees and transparent sea, Kvarner can easily be mistaken for an Italian province.

The Kvarner Bay has several dozen lagoons and islands along the coastline. This resort is ideal for tourists seeking a calm, measured vacation without noise and crowds of tourists.
