- Visit beautiful UNESCO listed Old Towns
In case you’re not aware, Croatia is home to no less than ten UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Dubrovnik’s Old Town attracts over 1 million visitors every year. Locally known as ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’, the historic city core is a fortification that is encircled by imposing city walls. Within the walled city you can explore the Gothic-Renaissance Sponza Palace and the Rector’s Palace, which has featured in the hit TV show Game of Thrones.
- Enjoy wine tasting in Hvar, Korcula and Vis
Wine connoisseurs are finally recognising Croatia as an important wine producer. The country has 64 distinct grape types, over 800 wineries and 20,000 registered wine makers. When visiting the idyllic islands of Hvar, Korcula and Vis, join a guided wine tasting tour and sample the delicious classic Croatian wines for yourself.
Hvar’s popular white wine Bogdanuša has a light floral aroma and refreshing taste.
Pošip is an aromatic white wine that is the perfect choice to accompany seafood dishes. The grapes are grown on the coast, and the wine is produced in Korcula and Hvar.
If you prefer a glass of red, Plavac Mali is one of Croatia’s most popular wine types, and has a distinct ripe cherry flavour and notes of pepper and spices.
