Itinerary Ideas for Croatia
Obviously where you choose to sail is entirely up to you, but here are some brief ideas of places to visit and things to see.
Not only is Zadar’s Old Town tainted with Venetian ruins, but is also blessed with two unique attractions; a sea organ and a solar powered dance floor. Stroll along the coast in the evening when this dance floor disk comes to life and listen to the melody of whale song performed by the waves.
If sailing near Šibenik, visit St. Michael’s Fortress or St. James’ Cathedral. The views from the fortress are incredible. The Kornati Islands are situated in the near and are great for exploring.
Split is famous for the ruins of its almost 1600 year old palace dominating the town centre. With islands also dotted about close by, Hvar is one of the most popular and worth investigating. Walk up to the fortress for the most iconic view of the island where you can view its fellow neighbours which look as though someone dropped beautiful green marbles in the sea.
Dubrovnik is a must see and top of the list when it comes to Croatian coastal cities. Walk along the cobbled streets of the scenic old town and stop for a photo at the famous Game of Thrones film set.
Travel Tips for Croatia
If you are flying to Croatia
, the three largest airports are its inland capital, Zagreb (ZAG), Split (SPU) and Dubrovnik (DBV).
You can either catch a regional flight to a smaller, more local airport, as regional flights operate during high season, or take a bus or taxi to your boat rental starting point.
Airports such as Pula (PUY) and Rijeka (RJK) also have direct European flights worth researching.
We suggest taking the bus as some coastal cities don’t have train stations.
