Will 2015 finally be the year that Croatia takes its rightful place amongst the royalty of European luxury travel? Our answer is absolutely yes!

It’s remarkable to think that Croatia remains somewhat of a hidden gem compared to its neighbouring travel giant Italy. This is a Mediterranean nation with it all: a long, rugged stretch of Adriatic shoreline including the famous Dalmatian coast with its sapphire waters and photogenic white-sand beaches like Zlatni Rat.

Offshore, thousands of islands make for perfect yachting territory, and inland deep forests, mountains and national parks like the Unesco-listed Plitvice Lakes. Arguably most appealing of all is Croatia’s historical treasures, which tell a story of Roman, medieval and Venetian eras. The capital Zagreb, with its cobbled streets and Baroque architecture earns a place among the grand capitals of Central Europe.

All Lightfoot’s luxury holidays are tailor-made to your requirements. However, our Travel Designers highly recommend:

  • Dubrovnik: One of the world’s best-preserved walled medieval cities, the jaw-droppingly spectacular Dubrovnik has featured in Game of Thrones and is arguably the most beautiful city in Europe.
  • Split: A gorgeous Adriatic beach city, home to the Diocletian’s Palace – the most beautifully preserved Roman ruins in the world.
  • Hvar: Just off the Dalmatian Coast, the glamorous island of Hvar is yachty paradise and renowned for its rolling lavender meadows, Venetian architecture and vineyards.
