Croatian holidays are fast becoming a new favourite among Brits as they seek sun and sea at an affordable price, and who can blame them? Croatia is a fascinating country, with medieval towns, hip cities, and over a thousand tiny islands along its crystal-clear Adriatic coast for you to explore. For those looking for some sunshine, summer temperatures reach an average of 26°C. With flight times just over two hours from the UK, it’s no wonder holidays in Croatia are becoming so popular.
One of the most up-and-coming destinations on Croatian holidays is Dubrovnik, a melting pot of culture, amazing architecture, exquisite food and bustling nightlife. Known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, this medieval city is perched on the southern tip of the country. With its stone-walled Old Town and well-preserved buildings, a stay here is like taking a step back in time on your holiday to Croatia.
Just a short journey north up the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia you can find the island of Hvar. The rich and famous from Croatia and beyond flock to the town’s port and resorts every summer, so expect to see a fine collection of yachts in the harbour. Hvar Town is a particular favourite for tourists looking to experience Croatia at its best, as here you can find promenades lined with palm trees, centuries-old architecture, and cool little bars tucked away down hidden alleyways. By day, you will never be far from the scent of lavender or some of the world’s best seafood; by night the fashionable bars and clubs along the coastline come to life, packed with holidaymakers and locals alike.
