There are a wealth of thisngs to see and do when you take family holidays in Croatia, here are some of the highlights.
Since being recognised by UNESCO and used as a location for the cult series Game of Thrones, this fabulous city has soared in popularity. Highlights include its walled old town, dazzling beach and many eateries serving fresh seafood. A short ferry ride from mainland Dubrovnik, the pristine island of Lokrum is the perfect day trip.
This exquisite island off the Dalmatian coast is known for its olive trees and lavender fields. Adults can sip on local red wine and treat their little ones to ice cream from the local street vendors. Hvar’s diverse marine life, secluded bays and labyrinth of caves make it popular for snorkelling and diving. With green, flowing waterfalls and enticing treks, nearby Krka National Park also promises a fun day out and is easily accessible from Split by car or bus.
Lovers of history and adventure will adore Split, which dates back to the Roman Empire. Its main palm tree lined promenade, the Riva, is the ideal spot for an al fresco lunch with all the family. Don't forget to climb the soaring heights of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, an ancient Catholic Cathedral in the centre of the city. The sensational panoramic views of the city are well worth the effort.
