Must-See Destinations in Croatia

Zicasso has worked alongside our travel specialists to organize our recommendations for the destinations everyone should experience while in Croatia. A custom Zicasso tour considers your time and goals when visiting Croatia, and our sample tours are available for inspiration.

How and where you travel depends on your goals in Croatia. The off-season offers different experiences than the popular summer season. We suggest the following examples for the first-time Croatia traveler, depending on the length of your trip.

Zagreb | Split | Dubrovnik | Rovinj | Sibenik | Korcula | Vis | Zadar

  • Discover the intimate secrets and remarkable stories of Croatia’s most famous cities
  • Delight in Zagreb’s reputation as hosting the largest number of museums per square meter
  • Explore the beauty of Plitvice Lakes National Park and Krka National Park
  • Wander the grounds of Diocletian’s Palace

Best Time to Visit Croatia

The best time to visit Croatia is between May to early-June and again from the end of September to October. These months are the shoulder season with warm weather along the Adriatic Sea, and the inland regions see far smaller crowds.

Summer months like July and August are hot and crowded but offer the highest probability of great weather for water activities; however, there is also a chance of canceled active tours, such as cycling and hiking, as temperatures can climb over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Modes of Transportation in Croatia

The best way to see Croatia is by private car. A private car driven by a knowledgeable guide can stop at local areas, travel at your pace.  Your driver can often offer a different perspective from which to view the history, culture, and landscape of Croatia by knowing specialized shops or local information you could not experience otherwise.

Trains

Trains do exist in Croatia, but they generally do not connect to the more popular tourist areas of the country.

Your Zicasso travel partner ensures that your logistics are as smooth as possible by including private airport transfers and domestic flights between destinations. This helps create a stress-free Croatia tour.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Croatia

When traveling on a Croatia tour, safety and travel logistics are always important considerations. The following information answers important travel questions you may have before visiting Croatia, so you can have a stress-free vacation.

Is Croatia Safe for Travel?

Croatia is very safe for travelers. Popular tourist areas see issues of petty theft, such as pickpocketing, but these instances are rare. Your overall safety will not be jeopardized, and if you keep a diligent eye on your belongings, they will remain safe. The majority of locals speak English, especially in larger cities, which makes it easy for travelers from North America to communicate, feel safe, and get around.

Which airports should I be looking at?

The most convenient route for most travelers is to fly into Zagreb and out of Dubrovnik or vice versa. Arriving in one city and departing from another takes away the need to return to the city of your arrival and spend valuable time backtracking instead of enjoying your trip. The busiest airports in Croatia are:

  • Zagreb (ZAG)
  • Dubrovnik (DBV)
  • Split (SPU)

Can Zicasso help me with flights?

Zicasso Air Desk is an international air ticketing service that eliminates the stress of finding and booking the right flights for your upcoming vacation. By employing the same personalized service you can expect from planning a trip with Zicasso, our competitive flight pricing, 24x7 service and support, and complimentary consultation of routing versus pricing with an expert flight specialist make finding the perfect flight for your trip effortless.

Does Zicasso assist with travel insurance?

You’ve booked your dream vacation, now protect it with travel insurance. A wide range of factors can leave your vacation in limbo. Medical emergencies, inclement weather, and unexpected cancellations can cause turmoil for your trip, so in the unlikely event of a disaster, get the travel insurance coverage that provides peace of mind.
