Self Drive Tour Croatia Overview

Trip Location: Zagreb

Croatia truly is “Europe’s best kept secret”; defined by blue seas, gorgeous pebble beaches, rolling green hills, golden Renaissance cities and a delightful nature – still with better value and somewhat fewer crowds than most other European hot spots. With more then 1,700km of natural Adriatic coastline, hundreds of little islands and one of the sunniest climates in Europe, Croatia is a stunning place with a fascinating culture and friendly locals. Croatia has several spectacular National Parks, five National Reserves and mesmerising historical architecture including centuries-old castles and about sixty 1,000 year old stone churches. It has vineyards and wineries, olive groves, rolling hills of lavender and flowers, beaches and mountain ranges and restaurants offering traditional Croatian cuisine as well as the world’s best seafood.
