Situated northwest across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, the European country of Croatia has become an increasingly popular location for travellers from across the globe. Not many holiday destinations in Europe hold the appeal of Croatia with its snowy mountainous ranges accompanied by over a thousand islets along the lengthy coastline. Moreover, the unique geography of Croatia’s border allows for an epic road trip that starts in one climate and ends in what seems like an entirely alternate country.
To begin your journey, a suggested airport to fly into is Zagreb, in the northern territory of Croatia, where you can pick up a car rental for your driving excursion. This city is the capital and should be explored for a couple days before setting out on your way throughout the countryside. Discover cultural museums, monuments, and ancient architecture in this historically rich community.
From Zagreb, travel only about 30 minutes west on E70 to the city of Samobor. In this aesthetically pleasing and charming location, you can feast your eyes on cultural beauty with its pristine buildings, art galleries, and local greenery parks. Also, adventurous tourists can challenge themselves on Samobor’s hiking trails and mountain ranges that will satisfy your body and soul.
From the inland town of Samobor, travel about three hours southeast to visit the gorgeous coastal towns of Rijeka, Pula, Zadar, Šibenik Split and Dubrovnik. Zadar, a harbour town buzzing with boats, bars, beauty, and more.
Travelling south about an hour and a half parallel to the coast you will find Split. Wine connoisseurs can indulge their senses here as there are numerous cellars bursting with flavourful and classic vino.
Finally, continue your drive to Dubrovnik. While a only a few hours drive down from Split, this seaside tourist destination is worth the last leg of your road trip and stands as a perfect way to end a spectacular Croatian holiday. Ride along in a cable car to drink in the magnificent view of the antique city, bask in the sun on white sand beaches, and don’t forget to try the freshly caught oysters in one of the ocean-side seafood restaurants.
As you may have already gathered, Croatia is stunning from top to bottom; furthermore, you can rest assured knowing that cruising the country and coastline is the ideal manner to capturing the most of your holiday to this spectacular land.
