Our travel company set up a perfect trip in Croatia. Our travel agent set up a self drive itinerary that really captured the essence of this beautiful country and allowed us to visit the highlights of adjoining countries (Slovenia, Bosnia and Montenegro) as well. We arrived in Zagreb and drove to Dubrovnik. We had the perfect amount of time for what we did and saw as we traveled from Zagreb to Dubrovnik with stays in fabulous hotels at each location.
This is a very tough question as every aspect was memorable, from the delve into the ever changing events that shaped the history of this area, to the very fine food, wine, perfect views, charming and warm people and fantastic roads to drive on. We really didn't expect each city that we stopped in to be quite as charming as it was as we visited Zagreb, Zadar, Lake Bled, Split and Plitvice Lakes National Park. We also visited Ljubljana which we enjoyed, but were pleased we didn't spend more than an afternoon there.
The highlight seemed to be the charm of all the walled towns and the museums, specifically the Museum of Broken Relationships. We also seemed to have traveled at the best time of the year as it was not jam packed with tourists - late September into early October. Honestly, I would not want to be there in the summer or any high season. It was busy, particularly in Dubrovnik when we were there fueled by the cruise ship business. Couldn't imagine what the summer would be like!
I'm not certain I would go to Plitvice National Park as it was very much out of the way for us with a 4 hour drive. It was very beautiful, but the weather was inclement and it was crowded with many many tour groups. We also took a day trip to Montenegro. I would skip this as it was a full day and not worth it. Croatia was a far prettier country in every respect. Don't bother.
Other than that, it was a great trip!
