Dubrovnik to Badija to Korcula, Croatia
The Croatian city of Dubrovnik sits on the country's southern coast on the Adriatic Sea. Explore the city centre — an UNESCO World Heritage site — with its 17th-century Cathedral of the Assumption and Rector's Palace, before walking around the ancient city walls. Admire the views as you ride the cable car to Mt Srd or visit one of the city's museums. Relax in the sunshine on Banje Beach; enjoy a boat trip to the nearby islands of Lokrum and Elafati; and view the city from the water on a kayaking trip or take a snorkelling tour. Badija is the largest island in the Škoji archipelago, near Korčula island in Croatia. The island is currently unpopulated, approximately one-kilometre-square, and is covered in dense vegetation and pine and cypress trees. A tarmac path surrounds the island which is great for walking and mountain biking and you'll find a stunning Franciscan Monastery that dates back to the 14th-century. There is also a good choice of beaches for sunbathing and the surrounding waters are a popular choice with swimmers and snorkelers. Slightly off the beaten track, Korcula is one of Croatia's many islands. It's located in the South of the country and a visit to this hidden jewel will reward you with its beauty. The island is rich in vineyards and woodland areas, and Korcula town itself is known as Little Dubrovnik due to its medieval walls and squares. Explore the streets surrounded by terracotta-roofed buildings, or head to St Mark's Cathedral for a insight into the local history. Marco Polo Museum displays an array of local artefacts and offers a taste of the authentic local culture in Korcula. Stroll along the narrow marble alleyways and browse the souvenirs in boutiques, or taste the local cuisine in a seafood restaurant.

Stroll along the narrow marble alleyways and browse the souvenirs in boutiques, or taste the local cuisine in a seafood restaurant. The Croatian island of Vis nestles in the Adriatic Sea, 35km from the Dalmatian Coast, and is home to around 5,000 inhabitants. Explore Vis Town where parts of the ancient city walls and the thermae (public bath) still remain. Pay a visit to Levaman Fortress that houses the Archaeological Museum; exhibits here include a 4th-century-BC bronze head of the goddess Artemis and amphorae that were recovered offshore. St Jerome’s Church and Monastery is built over an ancient Roman theatre on a small peninsula. The island produces some of Croatia's best wines including Plavac and Vugava and is also famous for featuring as a 'Greek island' in the film Mamma Mia 2. Perhaps pay a visit to the smaller nearby island of Biseco with its iconic Blue Cave.
4
Split to Sibenik, Croatia
Split, on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, is the country's second-largest city. It's popular for its golden beaches and bustling centre — which was built around the fourth-century Diocletian's Palace. Today, the palace remains a central part of Split's heritage after its transformation into a variety of houses, flats, churches, and chapels. Stroll through the centre to admire the towering Cathedral of Saint Domnius with its 13th-century oak doors that tell the story of Christ. The Riva waterfront promenade runs the length of the old town and is the perfect place to stop for lunch. See cascading waterfalls at Krka National Park or relax and snorkel on the beach of Brac Island before departing. Nestled on the mouth of Krka River, the picturesque town of Sibenik is the gateway to the Kornati islands. Visit the awe-inspiring Cathedral of St James, a triple-knave basilica with three apses and a 32-metre high dome. Head to the majestic St Michael's Fortress on the hillside overlooking Sibenik Bay and enjoy the open-air theatre. Discover the town’s rich history and collection of artefacts at Šibenik City Museum or stop by the white-washed St Francis' Church and Monastery. Alternatively, spend an afternoon exploring the tropical fish and marine life at Aquarium Terrarium Šibenik.
5
Krka National Park to Zadar, Croatia
Krka National Park spans 142-square-kilometres, lies 10km inland from Sibenik in southern Croatia, and takes its name from the 72.5km-long Krka River. The park is well-known for its dramatic waterfalls including Skradinski Buk Falls and Roski Slap, Krka Monastery, and also the small island of Visovac with its 15th-century Franciscan Monastery of Our Lady of Mercy. Skradin is a pretty little riverside town lined with brightly-painted and bare-stone houses on its main street and a ruined fortress towering above. Krka National Park is rich in flora and fauna with 800+ plant varieties found here, along with amphibians and reptiles around Krka River, 200+ bird species, and 18+ species of bat. Today you explore Croatia's Zadar — found on the Dalmatian Coast lining the Adriatic Sea. Zadar has a beautiful old town district filled with Roman ruins and century-old churches, including the 12th-century St. Anastasia's Cathedral and the Byzantine-style Donatus Church. Visit the Museum of Ancient Glass and the Roman Forum, before enjoying a cold beer or a coffee from a cafe at the lively People's Square. This historic port also features a selection of modern landmarks including Sun Salutation — an enchanting light show that plays from sunset to sunrise — and Sea Organ, which is a system of pipes and whistles found underwater that play music as the sea pushes air through it.
