With its Mediterranean ambience and stunning natural beauty, Croatia has so much to offer visitors. The Dalmatian coastline is one of the most dramatic in Europe, extending for hundreds of miles with steep limestone cliffs. Offshore, the Adriatic is studded with countless islands of all sizes, some inhabited, some not, giving the appearance of a series of huge intertwined lakes.
Dubrovnik is a delightful city, almost a living museum, medieval in character with a heavy influence of the baroque period in the numerous churches and where life spills onto its pedestrianised marble streets. Then there’s beautiful, unspoilt Montenegro – a bit like the Mediterranean must have been like 30 years ago. A stunning coastline with friendly ancient fishing villages, full of tiny streets and fascinating, vibrant market squares.
