Adriatic is More Than a Summer Destination
Up until recently, the Adriatic was mostly known as a Summer destination, attracting tourists mainly interested in the sun, beaches and the sea.
Dubrovnik helped launch the region worldwide and travelers have discovered that Adriatic offers a lot more to offer. From fortified medieval cities, such as Motovun and Hum, to small fishing villages with amazing scenery, like Rovinj or Piran; from award winning wines and first class extra virgin olive oil throughout the coast to the truffles in the north of Croatia; from Castles, like the one on Trakošćan, Varaždin, Bled or Otočec, to breathtaking national parks like the Plitvice Lakes, Krka Waterfalls, Triglav or Skadar Lake – The Adriatic region has something for everyone and every taste.
Adriatic in Every Season
Each season in the Adriatic region is gratifying in its own way. Vacationers looking for perfect sunny days at the beach, exciting night life and bustling streets, are best advised to come in the high season months of July and August. This time is ideal for private boat trips to many of the beautiful islands and caves, or taking private one day trips to selected destinations, in between relaxing beach days.
Travelers weary of Summer heat and crowds will find Spring and Autumn ideal to travel here. Private multi-day tours, custom tailored to see the best of the Adriatic region, will allow anyone to truly immerse themselves in the culture, history, nature and the people of the Adriatic.
The Winter has its highlights, too. People from all over the world flock each year to visit the enchanting Plitvice Lakes National Park covered in snow and ice, or the award-winning Zagreb Advent Christmas Market.
