Why travel solo to Croatia?
Think Balkan beauty soaked in Mediterranean sun. Croatia is one of the most charming destinations Europe has to offer.
Imagine lush forests and rivers giving way to the Adriatic Coast, along which you’ll find medieval cities, mysterious islands and pristine beaches. Geographically diverse and Mediterranean to a tee, there’s plenty to enchant you about Croatia.
Embrace the Adriatic spirit on the island of Hvar, with its sparkling sea-waters and yacht-lined harbour. Explore medieval Dubrovnik, weaving between baroque churches and elegant piazzas. Encounter the legacy of the Romans in Split, taking in the grandeur of the Diocletian’s Palace.
If it’s outdoor adventure you’re after, Croatia will thrill you. Kayak down the emerald waterfalls of Mreznica, quad-bike the Dalmatian wilderness, sea-kayak around the islands of the Adriatic or take an adrenaline-fueled tumble down the River Cetina.
Whether your ideal trip consists of cultured charms or rugged adventure, Croatia really does offer the best of both worlds.

Top places to visit in Croatia
Tucked away on the Adriatic coast, Croatia’s second largest city is home to some of the region’s best seafood dishes, including black cuttlefish risotto and fresh oysters, so make sure you get stuck in. Once you’ve filled your belly, we recommend exploring Split’s beautiful churches and elegant streets.
Dubrovnik is known for its distinctive 16h century Old Town. Vast old stone buildings and ancient city walls mean there’s history galore in this beautiful city, which you can explore through its array of museums and landmarks. Whether you’re wandering down limestone streets or drawn to the Adriatic, you’ll want to return again.
An island shrouded in mystery, a trip to Lokrum Island is perfect for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in Croatia’s flora and fauna. The island is home to a colony of peacocks and rabbits, but it’s said to be cursed so maybe take a friend.
Meander through the hillside town atop the island of Hvar, grab a beverage from one of the plethora of pavement cafes or take time out on the sandy beach. There’s no need to hurry in this slice of Croatia that has drawn comparisons to St Tropez.
