It comes to no surprise that this summer nearly everyone I know has decided to spend their holiday visiting Croatia. It’s a country rich with history and a stunning natural landscape, whether it’s a city break or a beach escape you’re after, Croatia has you covered.
Although being the country’s capital, Zagreb is often overlooked as a tourist destination even though it truly has a lot to offer. Packed with history, fascinating architecture and streets lined with museums, Zagreb offers the perfect Croatian getaway.
Visit The Museum of Broken Relationships- oddly fascinating and one of a kind, this museum holds a collection of personal items donated by members of the public which tell a unique and personal story of how a particular relationship fell apart.
Stroll past St Mark’s Church- This 13th-century church is one of Zagreb’s most emblematic buildings. Its colourful tiled roof, constructed in 1880, has the medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia on the left side, and the emblem of Zagreb on the right. It makes for some perfect Instagram snapping.
If you have a day to spare, you must visit Plitvice Lakes. As Croatia’s largest national Park, its astounding beauty and unique geological formations made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. With its sparkling blue water, clear enough to see fish hundreds of meters below the surface and some of the highest waterfalls in Europe, its easy to see why its such a tourist hotspot. However don’t be put off by the crowds as it truly is a place of one-of-a-kind natural beauty.
Highlight: INmusic festival- It’s no doubt that Croatia is one of the most up and coming destination for festivals. With guaranteed sunshine, cheap prices and gorgeous camping locations, its no surprise that more and more festival goers are picking Croatian festivals over their British counterparts. INmusic, based on two islands in the middle of Lake Jarun provides the ideal location.
