Tourist guide Croatia
Sometimes regarded as the ‘New Riviera’, Croatia, with its magnificent coastline and beautiful islands, is an ideal destination for your events.
Croatia has had an eventful history, and this can be witnessed in its medieval sites and ancient Roman ruins. Zagreb, the capital, combines elegant 19th century architecture with the heritage and culture from its 900-year history.
Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic and governmental centre of the Republic of Croatia and it has all the amenities associated with a central European metropolis – a vibrant café culture, markets, squares, churches and museums. Split, city home to the 3rd century Diocletian Palace, provides easy access to the numerous surrounding islands of the Croatian Adriatic, including beautiful Hvar.
The sunny beaches of Rovinj provide afternoon repose for its busy nightlife. Rijeka, the largest port in Croatia, is known for its remnants of Celtic settlements. Further still, Dalmatia, the dramatic, mountain fringed coastline is where you can find the vibrant and picturesque city of Dubrovnik.
Wherever you go in Croatia, you are always made to feel welcome whether for a corporate meeting or for the beauty and the beaches.
