As we are settled in Zagreb, let’s start with the most popular from Zagreb, but whatever starting point you’ll take – it will always somehow be the tour via Plitvice Lakes – National Park.

Plitvice lakes tour is very often the highlight of two tours, from Zagreb to Zadar, or from Zagreb to Split. And this can be done vice versa. It makes these two towns very popular, and there are many reasons for that, as St. Donatus Church, and the Forum but as well as the fantastic sunset in Zadar od The sea organ or The salutation to The Sun, both installations made by famous architect Nikola Basić.
Is Split next or last, or first – I don’t know but I know – you must see the most loved city in the world – Split. Locals say – it can’t be compared to any other town it the whole world. If the locals say that – then it must be the truth. When you see the glorious Diocletian palace where people still living in and the promenade with many bars and terraces, or The Cathedral with The Bell Tower – you’ll find many reasons for that kind of love that Dalmatians have for their Split.
We can’t decide what selection should we use or give numbers in the row of popularity, but whatever methods we use – it will show the importance of Dubrovnik in Croatian tourism. Besides the most popular Private guided tour of Dubrovnik with your own (or guided) walk over The City Walls, and of course, cable car to Srđ hill or even better panorama drive around the city, here you can have something really special. We can proudly say that the reason is Ivan Vuković, the guide, but the truth is even more spectacular – it’s the shooting place for all seasons of HBO megahit THE GAME OF THRONES.

Celebrities know the pros of spending time in Istria, so why wouldn’t you? Istria is green and hilly, and it has red soil. And if the green and red colors remind you of something – it might be; the Italian flag. In Istria it makes sense. Istria has a lot of Italians still living here in Croatia, speaking their language and living dolce vita Croatian Istrian style. It’s for you to find out what is so special about Istria.
