From weather to accessibility, rugged beauty to rich history, there are endless reasons why Croatia should be included in your travel bucket list. Although there has been an increase in tourist arrivals in recent years, there are still many people who are not aware of how beautiful Croatia is. Need some reasons to be convinced to have a holiday in Croatia? Keep on reading and we’ll list down some of its best attractions.

Diocletian Palace

Constructed in 4th century AD, this is one of the most popular attractions in Split. This is a recognised UNESCO site, which makes it more popular amongst tourists. A walking tour is the best way to experience this attraction. It is also home to a wide selection of bars, restaurants, and shops.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

Your visit to Croatia will not be complete without seeing this natural wonder. It has sixteen natural lakes, which are made more beautiful by their blue colour. The best way to have it explored is to ride a boat and take things slowly.Plitvice

Dubrovnik City Walls

Walking around Dubrovnik will take you back in time. Your stroll will surely be leisurely and immersive as you discover about its rich history. From its marble streets to baroque buildings, almost anything that you see will surely leave you in awe.


Mount Srd

This is one place that you should visit to have a stunning view of Dubrovnik. At the top of the mountain, you will be amazed with the view that will unfold in front of your eyes. The cable car ride on the way to the peak will surely be a memorable experience.

Museum of Broken Relationships

This is one of the most unique museums that you can see not only in Croatia, but in the rest of the world as well. It is a part of a baroque Kulmer palace, which you can find in Zagreb. As the name implies, this is dedicated solely for failed relationships. If you are trying to mend a broken heart, or if you are simply curious what the museum is all about, this is one attraction that should be part of your itinerary. There is a confessional part of the museum wherein you can record messages. There are also material remains, which include love letters from anonymous people.

Sun Salutation

This 22-meter wide circle is an art installation that harnesses the power of the sun during the day. At night, it turns into a magical attraction with its splendid light, which is meant to be a simulation of the solar system. It is complemented by the sound of the Sea Organ, which makes it even more magical.

Stari Grad

This is the oldest town in Croatia, which makes it an excellent place to visit for history buffs. The first settlers arrived here in 384 BC. While certain developments have been done in recent years, it still retains its old-world charm. It is the perfect escape from the party scene and the hustle bustle of the more crowded areas of Hvar.
