With a maze of canals threaded through the city and hints of history to be found on every corner, it’s easy to see why Venice is considered one of the most beautiful and charming destinations in the world.
Wander into the vibrant city of Rovinj, a colorful port city with a distinct mixture of Greek, Austrian and Slavic culture. Venture through the city’s striking buildings, followed by a traditional meal at one of the countless piazza cafés.
Rising up in layers from the harbor, Šibenik was founded by Croats – not the Romans – giving the city an interesting regional story and a collection of remarkable architecture, including the Cathedral of St. James, built completely in stone between 1431 and 1536 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. The city’s Mediterranean climate and volleyed possession among Venice, Byzantium, Hungary and Bosnia give it a sun-glow warmth and distinct heritage.
In a region where the words "Baroque," "medieval" and "Renaissance" - not to mention "beautiful" and "charming" - describe virtually every sight, one might think it would be difficult to find any one town that is a standout. Yet Trogir, Croatia, may just be that place. Located on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Ciovo, the city of Trogir has a history that reaches back to the 3rd century BC, when it was founded by the Greeks. Later influenced by the Romans and Venetians, Trogir is nothing short of an open-air museum, sprinkled liberally with churches, palaces, towers and fortifications. Its Romanesque-Gothic quarter is one of the best-preserved not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. UNESCO has recognized Trogir as the special place that it is, designating the historic center as a World Heritage Site.
The tiny isle of Vis has mostly escaped modern development, making it an appealing place to find a bit of Mediterranean authenticity - for Hollywood movies, too. Fishing and wine are longstanding traditions, and a rich history can be seen in the island’s architecture, humble with a Venetian flair. For nature lovers, there are pretty beaches and blue Adriatic.
This small island located in the center of the Mediterranean is a nature-lover’s delight. The arrival of Croatians to Hvar in the Middle Ages turned this temperate island into the center of Croatian arts and literature. Today, Hvar offers stretches of beaches that melt into the azure waters of the Mediterranean, its limestone towns sparkling amid the fertile green hills, rocky terrain, and the surrounding sea of clear cobalt blue. The island’s climate is unmatched, and beauty, unforgettable.
Long stretches of beaches, rocky mountains within reach of the sea, untouched nature and unique city monuments make up beautiful Croatia, and the town of Korčula is the historical, cultural and political center of the island. Considered the birthplace of Marco Polo, Korčula's history and tradition are apparent when you walk along the paved streets and squares of this lovely town. Visit cultural and historical monuments such as the Treasury of the Abbey, the City Museum and the Museum of Icons.
Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches as well as intriguing ancient ruins.
