CROATIA LUXURY TRAVEL

CROATIA LUXURY TRAVEL

TAILOR-MADE TRAVEL CROATIA

Located along the sparkling waters of the Adriatic sea, Croatia has been a desired land for centuries. It has been controlled by many of the great European empires, including the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians, and the Habsburgs. After the Austro-Hungarian Empire fell, Croatia became part of Yugoslavia, from which it finally won its independence in 1995. Given this history, it’s no surprise that Croatia has a stunning variety of historical monuments. In addition to its turbulent history, Croatia is known for its long Adriatic coastline and hundreds of spectacular islands in what some claim are the purest waters in the Mediterranean. Here, travelers can appreciate life’s simple pleasures: dining on freshly caught fish, biking through olive groves, and swimming in a crystalline sea. Envision the splendor of past empires, delightful red-roofed towns free of big resorts, and rich natural beauty.

CROATIA'S HIGHLIGHTS

CROATIA'S HIGHLIGHTS

Split

Roman emperor Diocletian began building his palace in Split around 295 AD; today, it still encompasses part of the city’s old town, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Get to know this ancient city by exploring the charming fresh produce and fish markets where locals do their shopping or by visiting the former home of famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović. Meštrović’s home has been converted into a gallery where Blue Parallel guests can enjoy a VIP tour with the curator. Split is also home to one of the oldest continuously used Sephardic synagogues in the world and one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Europe. Travelers can take in the sea air strolling along the harbor, which has been a trading post since Greek and Roman times.

Croatian Islands

Off Croatia’s coast in the pristine waters of the Adriatic are hundreds of islands that vary in size, shape, and landscape. Travelers can opt for day trips or charter their own private yacht to navigate from island to island. The island of Hvar is famous among jet setters and boasts a lively town center with elegant restaurants. Vis Island features horseshoe bays and crumbling 17th-century townhouses lining the coast and harbors. On a tiny islet, Biševo, visit the famous Blue Grotto, which is known as one of the top natural beauty spots in the Adriatic. Take in the extraordinary glowing blue light which illuminates the cave from the sun’s reflection. Visit Korčula island, the birthplace of Marco Polo, which is rich in vineyards, olive groves, and charming small towns. Cruise to the island of Mljet – one of the greenest and most beautiful islands in the Adriatic.

Dubrovnik

Known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik is a majestic ancient city fortified by impressive walls that have protected it for centuries. Game of Thrones fans may recognize the parts of the Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, as King’s Landing. Feel as though you’ve stepped back in time as you stroll along the city walls or wander the narrow cobblestone streets between stone buildings and through archways in the city center, feeling the magic at every turn. The surrounding waters offer another way to take in this beautiful city, and travelers can enjoy sea kayaking with stunning views of the city walls. Outside of the city, visit the striking Konavle Valley to enjoy a horseback riding excursion surrounded by mountains and valleys, green hills, and naked stone. A day trip to nearby Montenegro makes for an excellent extension to your time in Dubrovnik.

Istria

Explore the Istria Peninsula on the northern coast of Croatia with the picturesque fishing town of Rovinj as your seaside base. Istria is famous for its top-notch culinary scene that includes white truffles and wines, particularly Momjan Muscat. In the coastal town of Pula, visit Roman monuments, including a Colosseum-like amphitheater, the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi, and the Temple of Augustus. This area is also famous for its rich modern culture. Grožnjan is a tiny Medieval town that suddenly comes alive with music and art festivals and workshops during the summer months.

The country was great. We all feel our main guide, Adib, was exceptionally good. He was very well informed and went above and beyond to make us all happy during the trip.
